Scenes from the Humanitarian Bowl

I was going through my pictures to get ready for the Paper Pals scrapbooking retreat this weekend, and I realized I never posted any pictures from the Humanitarian Bowl! Gasp! How did that happen?

Well, I'm now going to rectify that situation and post some of the fun snapshots I got with my point and shoot camera at the most exciting college game I've been to in a long time. So without further ado, I bring you some of the fun back from Boise.

Here is my kids, husband, and my lil' sis at the Corner Club tailgating central.
 
Here's just a small part of the tailgating scene from the ramp going into the stadium. It pretty much rocked!
All the fam getting ready to root on the Vandals. I-D-A-H-O  Idaho Idaho GO GO GO!
This scene really filled my heart with joy. Competing in the Humanitarian Bowl is the only time you'll see IDAHO plastered across our arch rival's blue smurf turf. What a fabulous view that was!
The boys had a blast and were awesome fans during the whole game.
In fact, because of  this horn that you see CJ blowing here...
He ended up with red sore lips and even this blister. Now that's dedication!
So, with one minute left in the game and Bowling Green scoring a touchdown to take the lead we all thought it was over for the Vandals. Boy were we in for a surprise. A 65 yard pass down the field followed by an amazing throw and catch into the endzone and the Vandals had a chance to tie the game. But wait... they weren't interested in tieing and going into overtime. Nope. 'Go for two' came the motion from Akey.

And they did!

And they scored two!

And they WON!!! THE VANDALS WON!!!

Then the crowd started flowing out of the stands like water running over the side of a tub.
And the players celebrated.
 
And all was right with the world.
Let me tell you, it was a great day to be a Vandal, and I was soooooo lucky to be there for it all! Way to go Vandals!!!

Remember your blessings!

I watched the last couple minutes of the game on tv and all I could think about was what an amazing experience you must have been having. So glad you got some great shots of it.

So, have you presented the college with your FANTASTIC pictures?!! Those pictures should be blown up and hung somewhere on campus.
