it's tough to be a state fan

this past weekend, we packed up all the little people and headed to starkville for another day of tailgating and a superb football performance. if you happened to miss the game, we lost 3-2. no that was not the score of the soccer match...it really was 3-2.

but hey, at least the tailgating is fun!!

william taking a break from his chicken nugget to practice using his cowbell...


wes getting in a little cowbell practice time, too...


brotherly love at the tailgate...


we spent the first part of the game up in the MClub with wes so he would have some room to run around and not have to stay confined in the stands. when we made it back down to the stands, we find that even though the game isn't exactly high quality, when you have a box of popcorn and a good buddy (ben surholt) next to you...that scoreboard doesn't matter.


i'm not really one to complain about our players. this is evidenced by the fact that i cheered my head off for jamont gordon the last few years even though i'm not a jamont gordon fan. but, he's a bulldog, so you gotta cheer for the guy. and, it's not like they are out there wanting to lose...

but seriously, i realize that our punter had 2 great punts saturday night (he should have...he had enough practice), but how many times does he really have good punts. um...like next to never. the guy is averaging about 30 yards/punt. for real. for a punter in the sec that is just unacceptable. i mean, he kicked a 24 yarder against auburn! 24 yards! i'm a 28 year old white girl with toothpick legs, and i'd be willing to bet loads of money that i could punt a ball 24 yards! i know there are some guys standing on the sideline that can punt that far. or a soccer player on campus. or an engineering geek in a lab somewhere. for crying out loud, get us a punter. with the outstandingness of our offense, we're gonna need one!

or i'm gonna need lots of boxes of popcorn to get me through this season!
