What a Game!

I have had the pleasure to attend a Major League Baseball Play-off game this year in Texas, referee a High School Play-off game, and attend an NFL Football game, but none of these games compare to the Arkansas-LSU game I attended Saturday night. I have never been a part of such a loud enthusiastic crowd! The fans at War Memorial Stadium Saturday night were deafening and I believe had a huge part in the successful outcome of the game for Arkansas fans.

It was so much fun from start to finish! We started out at a tailgate party which was something he had never tried until this game. Had some great food and visited with some great friends a couple of hours before game time. Then it was game time and time to call those Hogs! The fans went crazy it was so loud I felt like I was on the front row of a rock concert. I love the atmosphere of college football. The crowd was loud through out the first half but reached an unbelievable level when with 6 seconds to go in the half and tied at 14-14 Arkansas threw long touchdown pass to go in up 21-14 and never lost the lead from there. I felt like I did when I watched my home town of Electra, Texas win the State Championship in 1985.

Anyway, I just had to tell my readers what kind of a great weekend I had. Now it's on to the Sugar Bowl (Projected) and whip Ohio State!

It would have been a perfect football weekend if OSU had not lost to OU.
