The Boys First Gator Football Game

CLICK ON THE PICS TO SEE THE LARGER VERSIONS...

Last night I took my boys to their very first Gator game! Since graduating from U.F. in 1992, I have been to only 4 other games...so this was an extra special game for me too. The boys were sick, with Kevin being sicker than Eric...but both boys absolutely did not want to miss this game! It didn't help that I had been hyping this game for months.

We arrived extra early so we could be there when the Gator football team arrived at the stadium...when we got there we came across the coolest 18-wheeler ever!



After a while the Gator band arrived with Albert and Alberta...We were lucky enough to get a picture with Albert!



Here we see the Gator band playing music and Albert and Alberta dancing...while waiting for the team to arrive...



Finally 5 o'clock arrived and the Gator football team arrived! Leading the team was the head coach, Urban Meyer!



The whole team passed right by me and the boys...literally inches away! We gave high-fives to most of the players!



After the team passed us by, we entered the stadium...only 2 hours until kickoff!



Here you see the boys watching the Gator team during their pre-warm-ups...



The 2008 Florida Gators during their pre-warmups...



Finally! Kick off! By this time we had eaten 2 cotton candies, 2 hot chocolates and a funnel cake!



One of many plays by the mighty Gators!



It was very cold, but the boys were troopers...



Although we left at halftime, we all had a great time! The Gators were up 35-0 and only scored one more touchtime after halftime...so we didn't miss much.



All in all, it was a great evening...the boys had a great time. I would call that a great success! Next time, we'll see if we can make through the third quarter!
