Game Day

Today, more than any other Saturday, I saw Game Day T-shirts, not just on men and women, but on entire families. Flying from Pensacola to Atlanta and back, the flights were full of mostly FSU and Auburn. Sitting behind us at lunch today was a family of five, mom, dad, two sons and a baby, all dressed in Auburn colors (Pensacola is in the part of Florida sometimes called FloriBama because it is boarded on two sides by Alabama, and the lines are very fine.

Yes, I was wearing garnet and gold, but it was subtle. 🙂

  3. LLLOOLL, Momcat, I totally forgot. It was a great game, but oh, I felt so sorry for the players, it was so icy, so slick and their hands were so cold and it’s so easy to get injured when it is so cold. The win was hard won – wooo hooo on y’all. 🙂

    Daggero, no kidding! Oh, what fun, and we are not there to help celebrate. Wooo HOOO, way to go, Kuwait! ! Kuwait has 11 years to make a serious presence in the Qatar World Cup. 🙂
