While I was in the States, I also went to Michigan to see my family who pretty much universally asked the question, “Why are we seeing you more when you go for a trip around the world than when you live in California?”
I think they were glad to see me. One highlight, going to the Spring Scrimmage of the Michigan football team. They played against themselves, with no punts, and coaches running all over the field. But I think they got 40,000 fans in the stands and it sure felt like a regular game. Hot dogs, band and everything! We’re nuts, I guess.
