Best weekend ever!
Okay, so maybe not the best weekend ever, but still pretty amazing!
Do I even have to tell you that UAPB beat JSU to win the 2012 SWAC Championship? (Hush DiscoDiva & KRock!) Well, we did!! And what a game it was. JSU came to play and for most of the game I was pretty sure they were going to win. And so were they. Late in the 4th quarter our QB connected with a receiver for a 95 yard pass that tied up the game. About 15 seconds before that? The JSU side was partying! They were playing “The Show,” chanting “ayyyyyy…you talking out the side of ya neck” and their blue and white pompoms were all a-flutter. We shut that ish down! In OT it was obvious that momentum was on our side and even though we were first and goal and couldn’t run the ball in to save our lives o_o we made the field goal and the final score was 24-21 giving UAPB (and me!) bragging rights for the next year and making your girl all kinds of happy!
Smoochy, LG and I rolled back to Jackson that night and while LG was in the backseat watching Netflix on my phone, Smoochy and I were up front reminiscing. We listened to Tracy Chapman, sang along with Al Green, and yelled “shut up!” along with Trick Daddy. We had a ball.
Look who I met – it’s Adrienne! We didn’t do much beyond hug necks and take a picture, but it was great to spend a few moments together. Hoping we’ll be able to hang a little more in the future. (Why are my glasses so crooked???)
And lookie here – It’s Dr. Fitzpatrick! Fitz is the reason that I know so very much about photosynthesis and eukaryotes…or used to anyhow :) He taught both Botany and Microbiology on The Yard. He’s retired from teaching but told me that he’s recently returned as the Director of Research. One of my favorite teachers ever!
And my brother showed up! This dude never misses an opportunity to get together and hang out with his friends and his frat whenever, wherever. Did I know he was going to Birmingham? Nope, but I sure was glad to see him there!
And my favorite husband! Smoochy swears that his lucky cap/Superman shirt combo is the reason UAPB was victorious and really, since we won, who am I to argue? Love that dude!
And last, but certainly not least, I have a prize to award…ThoughtsOfSouthernGal guessed that the final score would be 24-17 UAPB so she wins! Congratulations lady! Okay, my Mama guessed the same score, but relatives of the corporation were not allowed to enter the contest. Rules are rules :)
Was your weekend wonderful too?
