Colorado Proud

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. On Saturday, my brother and sil, hubby and I went to the CU-Stanford football game. Ever since CU was inducted into the Pac12, we have made sure that when the two teams play each other we go together. It is a fun rivalry-whichever team is hosting the game, the couple buys the tickets. The other couple then buys dinner after the game. This year, we picked up the tickets and they bought us dinner. It is such fun and we are hoping in two years the game will be at Stanford so we can go there, we've yet to see a game in the new stadium. We loved the tribute to the Veterans and our country.
CU's mascot is Ralphie the Buffalo and they actually run him on the field before the game.  They ran him this year at half time too; let me tell you he is one big boy! There are two people on each side of him with ropes and one fellow in the back who is just hanging on.  Ralphie is one fast Buff.

He goes right into his trailer after running and you can see/hear the sound of his weight on the trailer.  It is so fun to see such an incredible fellow.
We played well the first half of the game; much better than two years ago and it made it so fun to watch.  However, the second half wasn't as good-we got creamed!  Needless to say there was no hope of a comeback so we left before the end of the game to try to beat traffic-lol-everyone else tried that too.  We found a nice sports grill near the airport and had an early dinner with my brother and sil.
It was sad to see them go, but we are so thankful for all the time we get to spend with them.  They are so generous to us and such easy guests-truly they are a huge blessing to all of us.
Today will be a day filled with errands and quiet-when I get home, I'll be sewing.
I hope your week starts out on a good foot.


  1. Noreen, It's amazing how big buffalo really are. So good that there was a tribute to our vets. My daughter will be a vets' day for her class. The children love it. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. What special times with your brother and SIL! I hope that the house doesn't feel too empty today, after such a fun busy time this past weekend! :)

  3. How cool. College games are so fun!

  4. Well, our LSU Tigers lost too and to none other than Alabama. Ugh! But, that's life, someone has to loose and someone has to win. Sounds like a fun weekend with family.

  5. What fun you all had. I'm sure you're looking forward to the next time you all can get together.

  6. Sounds like a fun time. Wow, that bull is something else!
