Let's get right to the topic at hand! The Capital One Bowl!
As is their tradition of about five years, Hubby and Harold have gone to a college bowl game. Games in the past have been a little closer to home and usually include the Alabama Crimson Tide, but this year to follow Bama they would have to go a little bigger and better. They went to Orlando to see the Tide play in the Capital One bowl!
If you are not an Alabama fan, you might want to just close this post now and come back later for some titillating conversation about our welcome home, Chip's new men and/or the new and improved linen closet. I know, exciting right?
For now, let's recap the boys football adventure!
They flew out on Friday afternoon. That in itself was complicated with four delays and a plane being held for them in Houston, but they made it to Orlando by midnight or so.
When they arrive in Orlando the smart, smart, genius, must be working on commission car rental fellow talked them into a bit of an upgrade for just a few bucks. They were driving around in a Dodge Challenger, which Harold thought was the coolest!
Yeah, just hanging by the pool in Orlando on New Year's Day waiting to head over to the ball game. A great way to bring in the new year.
Now let's get on with the real deal!
Here comes the Tide! On your feet fans!
Toward the end of the game, fourth string Lacy got some playing time and scored a touchdown. The first, second and third string backs are meeting him at the sideline for a high five. I am sure we will see much more of Lacy next year!
Hubby and Harold flew home early on Sunday morning and got home in plenty of time to help me put up all the Christmas decorations in the attic! Lucky dogs!
It was a great trip for them. Loved the game, the outcome, the location, just everything was terrific! The end of another great season by Alabama. Not sure what their final record was, but most definitely won more than they lost and finished with a superb bowl game.
One last ROLL TIDE ROLL before we close the books on the college football year!!
Must end this post with a huge shout out to my "Technical Expert", also known around these parts as Hubby. He figured out a much faster, easier way for me to load pictures into my blog! YAY!!! Went from taking me three days to upload 30 pictures to taking me about three minutes. Huge improvement and hopefully that means less delays and more pictures in the future!
You may also notice a new ad area at the top of my blog. Hubby added that in the brief few minutes I gave him my password! He's always working the deal! Anyway, according to my calculations if each of my six followers click on the ad 7,354 times each I will get a nickel!
Not going to be retiring any time soon! Speaking of that....must get to work!
