Michigan works activities into Rose Bowl schedule
Michigan has been conducting their closed practices at The Home Depot Center since they have arrived in California but they have managed to work in some fun activities around their tough practice schedule. On Thursday night, December 28, 2006, the Wolverines attended a private party at the Improv Comedy Club in Los Angeles. The team watched multiple comedians perform their sets before a couple of the players took the stage and tried their hands at telling a few jokes. One of the players to reportedly brave the hecklers was team funnyman Darnell Hood.
On Friday, December 29, 2006, Michigan took a short trip to Santa Monica Pier. A couple of the players even took a quick dip in the chilly waters of the Pacific Ocean. Also, a group of players (including Mike Hart, Jamar Adams, Jason Olesnavage and Matt Hornaday) went to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to visit with kids. A picture gallery of both activities with photos by John T. Greilick (The Detroit News) can be found here. Go Blue!
