33 Things: UW vs OSU

It has been a long, long time since I've been to a Husky game, hence the reason it is on my 33 Things list!  I went to the game with Nikki.  We met up at the Park & Ride, along with Kristi & James who were also going to the game (but sitting in a different section).  And can I say Park & Ride is definitely the way to get to the game!  No need to worry about driving or parking!

We got to the stadium, picked up kettle corn & a pretzel and started the long climb up to the tip top of the stadium.  For as high up as we were, the view was still good.  We were on top of all the action. 

Holy cow!!  What a game!!  Double overtime.  I had forgotten how loud Husky Stadium can get!  Wow!  No one was leaving early (well except the people sitting at the end of our row).  After a few plays it became clear every OSU third down we were standing and making noise.  By the time we got to the second overtime we were on our feet, hollering, stomping, clapping for all we were worth.  After one false ending in second overtime (wiped out due to a penalty), the game ended in a Husky victory.  I turned to Nikki to celebrate and she kept asking if it was real.  This time it was!!  Hooray!!

Even though he doesn't play for us, let me just say Jacquizz Rodgers is fast!!

And today, well my voice is still recovering.  But it was so much fun!!  Go Dawgs!!

I can't even thoroughly read this post. I left to go run in the 1st quarter because our quarter back was pissing me off. .....disclaimer: I pretty much always get annoyed with our quarterbacks when they are new, but seriously!

So I gave up on watching. Then it is like my non-watching helped out the Beavers! ... but no enough.

I actually even talked about you on the phone to my mom during that game and said how I bet you were a happy girl that night!

***side note: Jacquizz and James Rodgers with their shirts off? OMG - jaw dropping! :)

LOL!! I almost put a disclaimer: Dear FruitFly, you probably don't want to read this post! :)

Funny! Hey - if your team winning can help piss off UofO fans at all ... more power to the Huskies!
