We got seated with 2 minutes til kick off. Scott and Shelly arrived with about 3 minutes left in the 1st quarter. Needless to say, Scotty had had just a bit to drink so Shelly came and sat next to me and left Scott to sit with dad. Poor Dad had to listen to him the entire game.
Shelly LOVES Blue Cotton Candy!
The weather was very fall like but was perfect for the start of football season! Going to WSU you get so used to being at games in Martin Stadium getting sunburned and dying of heat that the weather in Seattle on Saturday was a breath of fresh air. We were all able to break out our Cougar sweatshirts instead of our Cougar tank tops and t-shirts.
Okay so I have tried many times with NO success to explain to people that I am so NOT a competitive person. But apparently the way I yell and carry on at games does not back up that statement! I am very loud and get a bit over the top. The people in front of us at the game weren't sure how to take me at first but then thankfully Scotty showed up and was 10 TIMES louder than I was so he took the attention away from me.
Just before halftime we suggested to Scott to head down to the locker room put on some gear and head out on the field to play QB for the second half. He thought that would be a great idea but figured he would need a few more drinks first.
As he came back up the stairs from getting some food we were ALL laughing (even the people in front of us) because Scott was out of breath before he even made it to his seat. We decided he wouldn't be much help to the Cougs on the field.
As the Cougars were heading in for halftime we were all saying how they were going to get a chewin'! Then the next thing we knew we see all the Redshirts coming back out and sitting down in the tunnel. We were all laughing so hard saying that Coach Wulff probably sent them out because he didn't want to scare them to death!
Scott, Dad, and Uncle Bob just glad they aren't in Coach Wulff's shoes!
It was a very fun and memorable day. Even though the Coug's didn't come away with a win we still had some great laughs together. Thanks dad for a wonderful weekend!
