A Quick Sunday Night "Hey!!!"

Well, it's Sunday night and I have a few moments to reflect on the weekend. I'm sitting here watching my Dallas Cowboys cream the Eagles, and still reeling a bit from the Bama game that McKenna and I went to yesterday.

Boy, was that a GAME!!! We played LSU toe-to-toe and despite the fact that we were clearly the less talented team, we almost won it anyway!! We were behind 17-3 at the end of the first quarter (and McKenna and I were worried that it was going to be a very long game!!), but then we came back to go ahead 24-17. We had some exciting plays--interceptions, flying catches, a punt return for a touchdown--and the stadium was SO LOUD and ELECTRIC!!! 92,000 people screaming with excitement is just unreal!

But...we ended up losing by one touchdown (41-34).

It was a great game, though, and I think it shows that Alabama is on its way back!! Just watch out--all of you fans of other teams better be getting ready for some dominant Bama teams in the next few years!! LOL

(I''ve read a ton of articles about the game already, but THIS is one of the better ones. Check it out if you wanna get a feel for the game.)

And, McKenna and I had SO much fun!! We yelled and laughed and jumped up and down; she stared, open-mouthed, at some of the crude LSU t-shirts on display; we high-fived and then pouted; we walked block upon block up on block to get to our car (there were 130,000 extra people in town for the game!); we had good Mother-daughter time...and it was ALL GOOD!!!

Two quick pics for you (of McKenna walking down "The Strip" on campus, and a pic of our team in action!)...


How was YOUR weekend?

Glad you had a good weekend! I love football myself, although the fam does not which means I'm a closet footballer!

I love that you spend such fun times with your daughter! It warms the heart!

my weekend SUCKED too because we lost as well, as you know. I watched your game already commented on it on my blog. What a great time for you and your daugther that is awesome you get to do that with her. It was a tough one for both our teams, lets be sad together :)

I went to a barn dance with a very good friend, and Kristen is STILL mocking me for it ha. Hopefully the pictures never end up on the net

That was a great picture of the strip!

Weekend here was good, even if Saturday was entirely to windy (thanks, Noel!).

Will had a good, but quiet birthday. I changed up our website a little bit (thanks for the comment on that, by the way). Sadly, I lost two hockey games on Saturday (this after winning three the week before)... it's apparently either feast or famine for my teams this season.

I thought about you several times on Saturday. An exciting game is sometimes almost as good as a "win" isn't it!

Gin said...

Me, I was sitting here with my little man in his LSU onesie yelling at the TV! =0) I'm beginning to think his onesies are good luck! He has a Saints one he wore on Sunday and they won too. LOL

Dawn Bibbs said...

Wow, sounds like you and McKenna had a great time together. I love hearing about mothers and daughters sharing special times together...especially when that daughter is a teenager.

Sorry bout the Bama loss.
