The University of Miami Hurricanes embark on a new era, playing their home opener in Dolphin Stadium. UM triumphed 52-7 in front of 48,119, a very respectable number given the Canes’ recent mediocrity in a fickle fan town and their opponents I-AA atheletic classification.
I spoke w/ my dad on my way home from work – he was on his way to the game. I wish I could have been there with him – going to UM football games is something we’ve done together since as early as I can remember. I recall going to games before I could even understand what was going on – my dad would grab my attention during kick-off’s and punts because i enjoyed watching the ball go so high and the teams run at eachother.
I’m planning on going down to Miami for a game this season and look forward to watching The U in their new home.
