Hottest Ticket in Fargo

I happened to get my hands on the hottest ticket in Fargo this past week. Four of them - to the Gopher v. Bison game at the Metrodome. This was the fist time these teams met since 1936. The dome was packed.


Deanna couldn't find a sub for family table so she, Matt, and Alondra did that while Lauren, Janine, Sarah and I went to the tilt. I cheered my alma mater on with all I had even though there were only a few of us Bison in the Gopher season ticket section.


The last second kick was blocked and the Gophers lucked out a 10 - 9 win.

I'll have to bring some more Bison bretheren along next time. It's not that I didn't enjoy the company, but they were all more interested in the U of M band than the game.

Thanks again, Steve!! Sarah & I had a BLAST!!! Nothin' like watchig the 300+ member U of M Marching Band rockin' a Gopher/Bison game @ the Dome no less!! (A first for Sarah being there!!) We did watch some of the game ya know...when the band wasn't jammin'! :o) Really though, we had a WONDERFUL time! It was an afternoon spent with Bro/Uncle Steve & Lauren that Sarah & I will always remember! But you had to expect a fluteist & 2 clarinetists, especially the "older" marching band alumni, to be awestruck by the Golden Gopher Marching Band, now didn't you! See ya soon! Hugs, your favorite sister :o)

Hmmmm...that does sound like fun. Although it just goes to show you that the Thundering Turd is ever the disappointment. If it had been the Fighting Sioux playing the go-fers, now...

this is why Ranger Paul was not invited to attend the football game. me thinks the Souix should get a division 1 football team before he pops off like that as well.
