First 'Eers Game!

Check Spelling

She lasted through 3 1/2 hours of tailgating and made it to the beginning of the 4th quarter. On the way home, after spending $22 on food and $8 on a giant foam #1 finger she announced, "I'm NEVER going back to a football game, there were 100 people there and they were loud, and it's too far away!"Normally we would have stayed with Steven's parents who live only 20 minutes away so we wouldn't have had such a long drive back. But we had to get back to miss stella.

Considering I was certain that we would be hightailing it out of Motown by half time I think her first mountaineer game was a success. But I'll let her keep her word on not going back anytime soon, mommy and daddy have a little more fun without her at football games. Sorry kid, but sometimes the truth hurts.

Here is our day in pictures.

The Fam. Thanks Allison for the pic!

My friend Wendy said that this could be any young african american man in the US. Oh but it isn't my friend. This is NOT just some random dude with his hat turned sideways. This would be the Da'Sean Butler. And i spotted him first. Go me.

See the Pride for the first time!

Great seats!

This series is called "hand sophie the camera to keep her entertained."

The first time we took my nephew, Tyler, to a game, we asked how he liked it. Being the very up-front kid that he is, he (like Soph) said, "I didn't. At all. There were 60 people standing in front of me, and I couldn't see anything. Don't EVER make me do that again. I'd rather stay home and draw." Of course, 5 years later, he has his own season ticket. True to his word, though, he always brings a bag full of supplies, and he draws. And eats. He goes through at least 3 Sprites, a half a slice of pizza, a Dippin' Dots, a Zul's, and 2 big bags of kettle corn every game. But I'll give him this -- he suffers in silence now.

Jonathan would feel the same way, I am sure! I loved your comment about having more fun without the kiddo--sometimes that is SO true! :)
