Mizzou Football

Andrew loves college football season! That really is an understatement. Once it starts, most Saturdays can be expected to be spent in front of the TV with the radio on and the computer in his lap so he can keep track of all of the games he is interested in. This past Saturday, that was not the case. While I was sitting in the Ladies Bible Study on Thursday morning, waiting for it to start, one of the elderly ladies came in, sat down, and in the conversation, announced that she had two tickets for the Mizzou game on Saturday- first come, first serve! I immediately jumped on it. Apparently, she has season tickets from when her husband worked at the University. Her kids have encouraged her to keep them so they can go when they are able. But, when they can't get into town, she gives them away.
So, Saturday, we found ourselves decked out in black and gold, walking up the hill to the stadium with our tickets and receiving our complimentary rally towels. The tigers played Iowa State. It was a fun game. The final score was 42-28, moving us into number 9 in the rankings! Unfortunately, one of the great players on our defense got hurt in the 4th quarter and was taken out of the game. He is probably out for the rest of the year- he tore his Achilles tendon. Andrew has been talking about how sad that is all weekend! I had forgotten how much fun football games can be in person. We might even have to think about getting season tickets in the next couple of years. Time will tell! GO TIGERS!

Your cough from the concert probably really needed a football game to "make it fell better"! Glad MIZZOU got the win-am concerned about the secondary defense without "PIG" in the line-up.

That's the truth! I hate to see anyone get hurt, but expecially seniors that are really starting to come into their own on the field... He might have had a shot at walking on to a pro team, but now any chance he has will come in 18 months after loads of rehab - if ever at all.
