A Tailgating Saturday

Iowa vs. Penn State was the theme of the day for Saturday.  It was forecast to be chilly, so we decided to take the fifth wheel up for the day.  Bud and I headed up around 8:00 a.m. to get a good spot.  Travis, Kerry, and Chance, Trilby, Payton, Cael, and Nate, and Tasha and Clara all joined us.
There was a little eatin' goin' on.
There was a little drinkin' goin' on.
There was a little corn bag toss goin' on.
There was a little snugglin' goin' on.
There was a little Hawkeye wearin' gear goin' on.
A little football watchin' in the afternoon.
(Yes, someone had to bring his Dish.)
And then the big attraction.

There is such electricity and excitement in the air before the game it is hard to describe if you've never been there.  And the night games are the best!  Look at all that black and gold.  It was great and had to be intimidating to Penn State to look up into the stands and see it.
Final score:  Iowa 24 Penn State 3

What a great day of football and family time!!!

There's a Michigan vs. Iowa on the 24th, I'll be in Iowa at my sons making Chinese food for the game! It'll be a big one, since we're Michiganders and his friends are Iwoans (is that how you say it?) Can't wait!
