Want to paint the Big House? That'll be $6 million

The Big House, as the name indicates and we all know, is rather big. So, naturally, it takes a lot of money to keep the nation’s largest football stadium in tip-top shape. A routine paint-job is no exception. According to AnnArbor.com’s Kellie Woodhouse, Michigan, if approved, will spend $6 million to repaint Michigan Stadium. Yes, that’s a six, with six zeros after it.
