Manchester United v. Real Madrid at the Big House in Ann Arbor

What an amazing day it was in Ann Arbor when the Guinness International Champions Cup brought Manchester United and Real Madrid to Ann Arbor for a sold-out game in front of a record 109,000 supporters. Fans filled the stadium prior to the game and stood on their seats to watch the teams warm up! I’ve never seen anything like it. By the the time the game started, the energy was over the top. The game was exciting with lots of action and Manchester United prevailed 3-1. It was great to see Chevy as the jersey sponsor for ManU as well.

Word Crimes – Another Classic by Weird Al Yankovic – New Video

Weird Al Yankovic has done it again – a great spoof song and video. This time he goes after Robin Thicke’s often-maligned “Blurred Lines” and gives us a grammar lesson with his new song. Enjoy!

Belle Isle – Detroit Photographs

If you follow by blog and twitter posts, you know that Belle Isle is one of my favorite places. I spent some time there last week and I was very impressed with the changes on the island. It was also my first visit there since the Scott Fountain was restored.  The fountain is amazing; it is as stunning as I can remember.  A true Detroit gem.

Seattle Reign v Western New York Flash – National Women’s Soccer League

We really enjoyed the Reign v. Flash soccer game this past Sunday in Rochester, New York.  We have two young soccer players and huge soccer fans in the house, and they got to see some of their soccer idols at the game.  The players were very engaging with the fans after the game as well.  It was a great experience. I highly recommend NWSL games as a great family event.
