Boise Football

Boise State Football is big here in Boise Idaho, and even bigger here on campus. Last year being our first year here, we got into the spirit and watched every game on tv. This fall, hubby said he wanted to go to a game. So we checked the calendar and marked a few that might be possibilities. But for one reason or another, we never got tickets, until last week. BSU vs Nevada. Nevada had been coming on strong after a slow start and was the only undefeated team left besides us. So a match up was on!

When we talked about buying the tickets I knew the game was the day after Thanksgiving, but I thought it would be a day game. After our tickets were purchased I found out that the start time was 8pm! oh nooooooooooooooo! I knew that trouble was brewing. All week I looked for a babysitter, but came up empty handed. On game day, hubby finally made an executive decision and bought #1 son a ticket. And after a week full of sunshine a storm decided to make its way thru our area and the rain arrived. At 7:15 we bundled up in longjohns and jeans, 3 pairs of shirts, extra socks, gloves, hats, hoodies and coats and walked over to the stadium. We arrived 3 minutes before kickoff and found our way to the student section.

#1 son was a trooper. He liked the cheering crowd and the noise. He liked the hotdog that dad bought and seemed to like watching the big brawny players on the field. It was an exciting first half with lots of scoring. At half time, cold and wet we walked home to watch the rest of the game (which BSU won!! woo hoo)
in the comfy warmth of our home.

So when was the last time you went to a college football game?

Til next time ....

Yep, I think I would have headed home for my nice comfy couch too ;)

It's been 10 years since I've been to a college game. Football isn't necessarily our thing. Although with our son getting older, that might change.

Take care my friend!
Glad to know you guys had a great time despite the weather.
