Friday night football in Wisconsin

Last night, we walked down the street to watch a little bit of the local high school football game. Eric was convinced it was homecoming because another school nearby was having theirs on the same night {They weren’t and he still owes me a dollar}.

While I don’t think the whole town was there, it did bring back memories of growing up and going to the games on Friday. The stadium looks just like the one that is now at the Junior High in my hometown, but the metal bleachers are so much colder here.

I think it was only in the 50s last night, but as the night went on it got colder. After watching all the little league football players welcome and warm up with the Varsity team, we decided to head back home. {i.e. I am a wimp and couldn’t feel my nose or legs anymore}.

Now we can say we’ve been! I’m sure we will try to make it out to a few more as the season goes on. It might be a toss-up on the really cold nights since they air the games on the local cable network, as well.

I already think this year is going to be colder than last. The weatherman is telling us to expect freezing temperatures tonight/early Sunday morning. In September, really?!

Good thing I got such a great deal on the heated mattress pad and blankets before I left Texas! We’re going to need them pretty soon here.

Rep Green and Gold

In a recent Baylor Proud email, they sent us a rap/anthem created by a former Baylor receiver. With the football craze starting on a high school, college and professional level, it’s so much fun to be a fan. {Even if TAMU thinks they’re too good to stay in the Big 12 with most of the state}.

Here’s the “anthem” to get you in the spirit!

\”Wins on Wins (Sic em Bears)\” Freestyle by Baylor Barbee

Baylor Bears – Winnin on Em
Green and Gold – Sic Em Homie
This is our Year, Gotta Get it Homie
Big 12, we movin up it
Spread the Field, Showin em homies
Throw The Deep Ball, “Nice to know ya”
Knockin em all down, we goin bowlin
Bandwagons already started rollin
Magic on Field when We Run that Play
Receivers and the backs that can run for days
Doomsday Defense,  they don’t play
It’s Safe to say, we here to stay
Brand New Year, Huntin on em

Movin thru em all like its nothin homie
Bring the A Game, never had a B
Get the whole 6, wont’ settle for three
You takin pride in the interlocking B – U

Pride in Baylor, Baylor Pride
Speed n Class, they can’t match our stride
Outwork em all, extra miles
Leadership, can’t outsmart Briles
Shine like a star with the lights off
Warriors in Pads with the Nikes on
Highlight reel, where the cameras at?
Show your support, where the banners at?
15 yards for a celebration
Jump into the Stands at baylor nation
Winnin on the road, We hear  em hatin
They can’t come in the Den at Floyd Casey
RG Got Wheels Like a sports car
Presidental – Judge Starr
Big shout out to the baylor line
Gameday, baby, its about that time
60 minutes, maybe more
when the clock strike zero, check the score
Bears Win – says John Morris
Trophy Time, what they got for us?
Y’all working hard? we working harder
Bowl Game last year, goin farther
New Year, New Team
Engine rollin, full head of steam
It’s out there bears, Get it
Sic Em Bears, Sic Em
Tradition Starts, you form the Mold
Let Em Know We Rep Green n Gold

Sic ’em, Baylor football and Baylor Nation!

Fall (and football) is almost here…

With 25+ days of 100 degree heat, it is hard to imagine that fall will be here soon. I can’t even imagine I’m starting to think about it yet.

But with school just around the corner, Eric has already started his coaching responsibilities. This week was his first week back and all the plans for the year are consuming his thoughts.

While the summer was a good “break”, I’m not sure what to expect this fall. When he was doing all his scouting reports, games and such last fall, I was busy planning our wedding. What will I keep myself busy with this fall? Now that we’re in the same house, his absense will be intensitfied. HELP!

Any others out there who have spouses who have a “busy season” or go months without having a conversation or meal together on a regular basis?

I’m already starting to make the list in my head of all the fun (and adventurous) things this fall will hold for this “football widow”. Let me know if you want to join me!
