K-State Football Game

On November 24th Jay, Kendall, Nicole, Grandma and I got up bright and early and drove to Frenso, CA (about a 3 hour drive each way) to see K-State play Frenso State. It was my first college football game and although I admit I'm not an avid college football follower (I just don't have time to devote every Saturday to watching football all day long) it was fun and exciting to be there, watching the game live. Jay played football for K-State and is bordline obsessed with college football. He tells me he's gotten much better and I should have seen him before he lighted up but I still think he's over the top. Because of this, I was terrified of them losing the game and as a result, living with a man in mourning for a week or more. However, he was prepared for them to lose and said that he would not be in mourning, even if they got their tails kicked. We got there and it was a sea of red shirts and hats. Talk about feeling like the minority! Fortunately, Jay ordered the tickets off of K-State's website, so we were seated in the K-State section. We had one purple section in the entire stadium. I only feared for my life once when I made the mistake of going to the bathroom without any purple support and an avid Fresno fan started shaking a poster in my face and screaming at me to go home. I made it safely back to the purple section and made sure I always had support whenever I had to leave the safety zone again. K-State did not win the game, I stopped taking pictures of the scoreboard after the 1st quarter, but we still managed to have a good time. They started off great and we thought they might surprise us but after the first quarter ended, they just could not hang onto the ball. It didn't help that the referees through out a flag every time a Wildcat looked the wrong way but wouldn't penalize the Bulldogs no matter what they did. We did come back in the end an score a couple more touchdowns just so we were not completely humiliated. The final score was 45-29. Jay kept his word and took it in stride and it was a great day of family fun. The cheerleaders did a great job of keeping us pumped and Willie got the crowd (if you call one tiny section a crowd) roaring. I feel a new sense of pride for Jay's Wildcats and might even sit down with him to watch next season. Ok, I might be doing Scrapbooking while we're watching the game, but I will cheer my heart out for my man, and his team.
