Football Dreams

I would love to be able to attend every Notre Dame home football game as a season-ticket holder, but alas! I am not. So when my husband came home with tickets to Saturday’s game, I was excited to attend.

Even though I had been sick all week, I didn’t want to miss the chance to be in the crowd. We waited until 2:30 to decide to get into the car. It had rained all morning, and the threat was still imminent. But at 2:35, we packed up the car, made sure tickets were in hand, and drove to Edison Road. My daughter is on vacation this week, so we had a free parking spot! Nice!

We walked to campus and found our seats. A cool breeze swept through the stadium. Clouds rolled by, some dark and some white and fluffy. Would it rain? Yes. In the first half, it sprinkled for a few minutes at a time. Then the blue sky appeared and Notre Dame scored.

Notre Dame won the game! It was nice to get out of the house on a Saturday and be a part of the action, instead of watching on TV. I hope to get more tickets this year. Football season is a blast!

  1. Glad they won, and glad the rain held off. I’m sure your husband appreciates you like going to the games!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the game and your time outside. Football season is a BIG deal in our house so I understand the excitement.

  3. A college football game is so much fun! I remember when I first attended an Ohio State game – I was amazed!! Glad you went and enjoyed it!

  4. Jennifer, what a gift to live close enough to get in your car and drive to a game! We were watching the game on t.v. in RI dreaming about taking our son for the weekend (when he’s old enough to appreciate it) to see a game. My husband was saying there are no hotels nearby and we will probably need to stay in Chicago. Is this true?

  5. Love the “Boys of Fall.”

  6. I love football season! I’m glad you were able to get out too. It feels bad to miss fun things when we are sick.

  7. Perfect Saturday! And so glad the rain cleared out and you were able to enjoy sunshine AND blue sky.
