Merry Christmas AND Happy Holidays from GoBlueWolverine!
In what seems to be a decided approach to re-emphasize fun after an especially stressful season, and to be careful with several key players who are ready to play but nursing nagging injuries, Head Coach Lloyd Carr has decided to cancel practice on Christmas Day and give the team the day off.
The schedule in Texas so far as been:
Thursday: morning practice in Ann Arbor; fly to San Antonio.
Friday: day off -- afternoon at a Texas ranch (Fri: Cowboy Lamarr); evening at the San Antonio Spurs game.
Saturday: a very crisp morning practice; afternoon attendance of New Orleans (San Antonio) Saints game at the Alamadome.

Here are some photos from Saturday's practice -- many more to come.
