Oddly enough I'm not as impatient this year. I mean I'm of course looking forward to it but I'm just not feeling it this year. You don't think that...I've matured do you? Oh God no, help me now please....

Well, Bo-2 (and everyone)...I've got a very UGLY confession to make. And I still can't believe this happened...

But while in A-squared for the big House 5K last April, with former poster-colleague "Grey Ghost", for whatever
reason---for the first time in my life, the "magic" just wasn't there. I don't understand...could it be my 65 years?
Could it be the enormous changes on campus (the new buildings, etc.) since my last visit, way back in 2003?
Even winning my age-group (that's right, I did) in the 5K (which I didn't learn, or suspect, until hitting the website a week later) didn't seem to "do it". Oh, well...Father Time works in weird ways.

And whilst, a'la Bo2's case, I don't have the same enthusiasm today as I did on every opening Saturday in my 20s, 30s, and 40s, say---I STILL want these next 7 hours to speed by and see some MICHIGAN FOOTBALL!!!!

C'mon, BLUE---let's DO IT!!! Improve that Gator-hunting record to 4-0!!!

Glad to see that I'm not alone. I guess it's just hard for every Michigan season-opener to compare to those when we were in school? Maybe we've become hardened by life?
