Happy football season, Ann Arbor! Is the weather going to cooperate with kickoff?

By Kyle Feldscher

It absolutely will.

College football returns to Ann Arbor this weekend and it looks like it's going to be a pretty standard August game in Michigan Stadium: Hot and sweaty.

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer, but it's all good because it kicks off the best season of the year: Football season. While some of us will be looking toward East Lansing Friday to see how the Spartans fare against the Western Michigan University Broncos (Go Green!), I'm sure most of you are concerned with the forecast for tailgate and kickoff here in Ann Arbor.

Don't worry, everything seems like it should be positively beautiful here in our fair city. For the 110,000-plus of you going to the game on Saturday, make sure you stay hydrated and keep cool in that bowl of a building.

I'll be watching from the high desert in California. Twentynine Pams Marine Corps up here and some Marines just moved in near my house. Two of the Marines are from Whisky and a Marine and his wife are from the Ann Arbor area. If you think the frat parties get crazy try being around a bunch of Marines when they party. I'll be flying my Mich. flag and barbecuing. Go Blue !

I've been around Marines when they're having their time off from duty. It is no joke. My uncle is a Marine, we're well versed.
