Another cool video (but only slightly related to Michigan football)

I have another cool video to show you that is not technically Michigan football related. Yet I think many of you will get a kick out of it nonetheless. It's of a 1987 move of two houses from Main Street to South Huron Parkway. The route takes them past Michigan Stadium, which will probably get a nostalgic smile out of a few of you. For one thing, those were the days when the stadium was surrounded by a chain-link fence that had all kinds of holes in it. Any of you sneak in back in the day?
You'll see these massive houses take the Main-Stadium turn – then cross the Stadium Boulevard bridge past Ann Arbor Drugs and the land of sub-dollar gasoline.
You can see it here
This is Rob Hoffman, one of the partners in Ann Arbor's Priceless Photo Preservation, which digitized that early film of a 1930s Michigan football game and the 1998 victory parade down Main Street.
