First Games of the Season!

So Friday night was the kick off for both of my brothers football seasons. I went to Rocky's game at Eastern Washington University! It is about a four hour drive, but it's worth it. Let me first tell you that the weather in Eastern Washington is very similar to Utah. So I was prepared and dressed for some pretty warm weather. As we are approaching Cheney (where the school is) I noticed some clouds....storm clouds...was I concerned no!! My mom and I got to the game and we get settled and I was totally excited..I was trying to find my brother, you know give him one of my famous shout outs. Then it happens... started off as a sprinkle, so my mom ran to the car to see if you had an umbrella. My uncle went and stood under the covered area. Of course I stayed in the bleachers because I didn't want my seat to get wet. Then it started to down pour and I sat there because I didn't want my seat to get wet, brilliant. Guess what...HAIL! Are you kidding my now! I am definitely not going to take cover now, I am soaked. Let me tell you Hail hurts. I am pretty sure I had some welts, but I took it like a woman! After about 10 min. it stopped. So everyone returned to their seats, and guess what the game had been delayed because another storm was coming through with about 50 mile an hour winds and we were all advised to take shelter. At this point, excuse my french, I am pissed!! Not only am I soaked, I had to hike back to the car and wait an hour for the game to start. I get to the car and I am trying to hurry and get dry clothes out of the back of the Explorer. I wasn't quick enough a big gush of wind comes and the hatch to the car comes down and hits me on the head. I am so loving life now. Needless to say the game started and hour later after all the storms had passed and it did not rain again. We won 52-13, my brother Rocky played well. I love going to his games rain and all!! Jordan's game did not go so well they lost 30-7, but hey it is only the first game of the season. I am sure all you sports fans will want to know how their seasons go, don't worry I will keep you updated!!

The pictures below are a couple years old (2005). That is Rocky and he is #77!! The middle picture is of the Offensive line, three of them have graduated. The bottom picture is of the whole O-line and his Coach!! Don't worry I will get some recent photos because I know you are all dying to see them.
