At this point in the day, Dave had yet to manage to get the TV working and the weather had decided to slightly "rain on our parade". We huddled in the center of the tents trying to keep dry, but quickly figured out it would ultimately end up being a lost cause!
Stuart - Dave's roommate - and his girlfriend, Lizzy, also came to hang out with us!
By lunch time Dave was STILL trying to figure out the TV situation. At this point, frustration was at an all time HIGH. Can anyone other than me imagine him at this moment in time :) ? Bless his heart, he had been working on this the WHOLE morning and couldn't figure out what he was/wasn't doing. He ended up just bringing it back into the tent. Next time, kid! We'll figure it out next time!
About an hour before the game started the bottom falls out of the sky. We all were taking bets on how bad Big Al was going to smell by the end of the day!
*Confidential to Mike and Sandye: Thanks for coming down and spending the day with us. We had a wonderful time - even if we were bogged down by rain and mud! We're looking forward to the October games when you get to come back and hang out with us, Sandye!
*Confidential to Sam and Beth: We had an insanely FABULOUS time with you guys! Thanks for the dances to the Motown band, the laughs on the way home, and romping through mud just spend some time with ME (and Dave, I guess -ha!) and have an exciting weekend of Alabama football! Please come back soon!
