How 'bout them DAWGS?

My alma mater seriously just became the number 1 team in the nation this weekend! (for football) Um, when I went there we got to 19th I think. And that was HUGE for a college in Mississippi.

Little Elvis and Baby Plum attempted to watch the game. We watched the first half at my parents' house, then finished up at ours.

Little Elvis is such a questioner, and Bob was working on the sunroom. I hope my answers to his many questions were semi-true. He was thrilled when I told him that I was one of the crazy students who stormed the field after the big win against Alabama my freshman year. The students trashed the field and brought down the goal posts. (The craziness begins around minute 9) I believe my date picked me a few stems off of a very trampled plant to remember the game. I threw them away, but I remember the excitement. I'm usually not a part of history, so it was cool to actually tell Little Elvis a personal anecdote.

He was so thrilled when they won, that he decided he was going to go there when he grows up. Baby Plum said he would, too. Cheese Puff was cranky from a late afternoon nap, and apparently doesn't want to think that far in advance.

Hail State!

Hurray! I'm glad you got to share it with Little Elvis and Baby Plum! It's so fun when they get to the age where they really can share the excitement!
