adidas marathon Large Kraft macaroni noodle spotted at Michigan Stadium to be removed Friday night
of a noodle tainted game day turned out to be unfounded. The massive macaroni, owned by Kraft Foods Inc., will be removed from the grounds of the stadium long before game time, University of Michigan assistant athletic director David Ablauf said.
actually kinda funny, everyone seems to be fixated on a noodle and not about a football game being played tomorrow, he said.
but it will be moved out of the stadium this evening. Friday event that the athletic department will be holding on Fridays prior to home football games throughout the season.
The Our Wolverines initiative is designed to give fans and students access to Michigan Stadium during non game times. Ablauf said that since September 11, 2001 it has been difficult arrange tours and other events to show off the Big House. Fridays for $10 per person.
Ablauf said that the Kraft noodle,
which has the company Know You Like It slogan printed on it, was brought in to help kick off the events.
on site for the event, he said. can take their picture with it, it something different. Friday events. He said that the sponsorship agreement to have the noodle at the stadium was between Kraft Foods and IMG College, which handles Michigan corporate sponsorships.
The noodle has been featured over the past 2 years at sites such as Wrigley Field in Chicago, Love Park in Philadelphia and Fisherman Wharf in San Fransisco.
Kraft Foods Company could not be reached Friday for comment.
Really ? Really ? These elite football purists must be the same ones who axed the Fight Song Halo.
And where do draw the line? Do they like the stadium the way it was before the noodle? Or before the giant scoreboards were added? Or maybe before the most recent addition where they added thousands of seats and made the stadium taller? Or maybe a true purist thinks they should go back to the original 1927 design which sat 82,000 people? It hard to call yourself a purist when talking about a facility which is constantly changing.
