Fall Football

About once a year we get free tickets to attend a Wake Forest football game. Last year we went to our first ever college football game and loved it. This year tickets were available and RL jumped on it.
Guess who we played? What? The orange and purple aren't a dead give away?

Here, maybe that big orange flag will help a little.
Going to a game you don't expect to win is kind of a mixed bag. It can be a wee bit slow if it's not a massacre - which can be better than a massacre.
When it gets a little slow the photographer will sometimes find other things to photograph. Like maybe her socks. Believe me, it was a great day for hand knit wool socks!

See, we sat in the nose bleed section. The tickets said section MMM. We passed M. We passed MM. Somewhere around that section we thought they had accidentally typed one too many Ms on the ticket. No way could they have a MMM section. They DO have an MMM section. It's about twenty feet under flying aircraft.

Oh no - photographer must have been bored again! The full moon over Winston-Salem was very pretty.

Shoot - thought you would be able to see the final score. Clemson won 30 -10. I wouldn't call that a massacre, would you?

We did score a touchdown! YES! So many people were leaving the game by this point. It was thrilling to see the team score! When they score this guy stands in the end zone and waves this HUGE flag.

These guys run up and down the field. Last year when we beat Elon, they got a real workout. Needless to say, they didn't this year.
All in all it was a great day for football!

You're so funny! Looks like you had a great time -- especially WITH the handknit socks!
