Ole Miss - Georgia GameTuesday, October 03, 2006
Ohmygoodness - did we *ever* have the best time at the Ole Miss game Saturday night! We started off in the Grove where everybody was tailgating:
Some of the setups were nice...
...and some of them were *amazing* with nice chandeliers, china, etc. and multiple flat-screen televisions showing the pregame and some of the other SEC games that day! Av and I have tailgated before - but never with the good china and linen. We are definitely going to have to step it up next time!
We got in the line to the walk where all the players go through...Colonel Reb starts the walk...
...and then all the players go through - it was so much fun!
After the Rebel Walk, we went over and watched the band play...OHmygoodness was that ever great! I've put just a snippet of the movie we made on my camera here. We actually recorded about seven minutes, but that's a huge file, so... Everybody was singing and cheering along to all the songs and it got everybody worked up for the game! Soooo much fun...
Here's Colonel Reb just before we all walked over to the stadium:
The game was SO GOOD! We were expected to lose to Georgia by a huge margin - but it was a great game and was really close until the 4th quarter. The referees had some really bad calls against us and missed some really important calls that would have gone against Georgia. I know there are always mistakes made by referees, but this game was one of those where everybody was saying to each other (over & over again), "what are they thinking!?!?". Anyway, we did a lot better than I think most people expected and it really was a good, close game. LOTS of fun!
We love Ole Miss! I kind-of have a thing for Ole Miss anyway, because I've considered going there to get my Masters in Southern Studies. I've got my BBS (business) and my BA (liberal arts), but I'd love to have my Masters and be a folklorist! How neat would that be?! I think it would give me a great background to one day be able to collect stories and such, and write a book!
Anyway, we did lose the game (14-9) but it was *such* a great time!
