Heading over to Ford Field at 4 p.m. today meant one thing -- couldn't go see the Pussycat Dolls perform a free concert right outside our hotel. Didn't want to hear the Pussycat Dolls, mind you ... just see them. Oh well ... there's always Fergie and Staind tomorrow (not a big fan of either, but they will be playing as part of the Final Four's free concert series out by the Riverwalk, for those of you in Detroit).
One thing was evident on the mile-long walk from the hotel to Ford Field: Sparty is definitely in the house. It was like St. Patrick's Day, there was so much green flooding the streets. I scoffed at Jim Calhoun's suggestion that there would be 50-60,000 Michigan State fans at tonight's game, and while that still is an overstatement, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see about 20-30,000 of them tonight.
Check back later ...
