Scenes from
the sidelines


A fan in the stands of Michigan Stadium
generally devotes his or her attention to the ac-
tion on the field. Sitting high above the artificial
turf with friends and tens of thousands of
strangers, one has only beer, antics in the
stands, and the passing blimp for distraction
between plays.
But down on the sidelines there's excitement,
and isolation, that doesn't involve most fans. The
territory on the edge of the main event is scouted
by photographers, cheerleaders, policemen, and
the occasional football fanatic clamoring for at-
tention or maneuvering for a better view. And
amidst the action are benchwarmers, coaches,
and referees, waiting, watching, conferring.
At the end of another football season, here are
scenes gathered during a season on the sidelines.
