Let the Games Begin



We have season tickets to U season football. Tailgating, big marching bands, and exciting games (sometimes)--what is not to love? The Mr., old football coach that he is, loves football in any form. His daughters must have inherited that gene.

Me? I love people watching. The two love birds above were in that position most of the game. They didn't leave the rail. I finally thought if they were willing to make such a show of their love by blocking the game and the half-time show, I might as well snap a shot or two.

I never did figure out how old they were. My guess is they were a couple of high school kids able to sneak away from parents for the afternoon. But talk about exhibitionists! No hiding in a corner for them. They put on a show for the entire end zone.

And I'm off to do some more people watching today. Oh yeah, and I hope the U team wins!

I just shot ice water right out of my nose...HILARIOUS...i'm thinking that strategic positioning is romeo's way of keeping his hot pantsed girlfriend attended to without missing the game. As any good Wildcats fan, he's willing to sacrifice his dignity to show loyalty to the team.
(And BOY are we jealous of those seats!)

I so remember those days... only I don't think we were so bold. More the sit next to each other and hold hands type.

My memories of football games were different. For my school we danced the pre-game with the dance team and for my boyfriends school I would watch him play. Ahhh, great memories. We dated all 4 years. Makes me laugh!

Sheesh, didn't they get tired of standing the entire time?!
