Back in August, I was thinking that the team would have a decent season. For goodness sakes, this school puts almost every dime they have into the team, so they better get something out of it, right? Of course, it'd be nice if some of that football money went to repair/upgrade the bleachers so the drummers don't have to fear for their lives every time they walk across them.
So, the 3rd round of the playoffs was held tonight. Aside from being cold, and everyone still a bit lethargic from all the turkey they had the day before (and leftovers they had today), it was an exciting game that literally came down to the last second.
As I've been complaining about the last couple of weeks, there was no support from our fans. This week, I was all set to let is slide because of th holiday and this being an away game, then I see their stadium is almost standing room only!
I won't go into all that, but I can say that with a last second touchdown by the other team, we were eliminated from the playoffs and football season is over for me.
I'm a little torn on this. I kinda wanted it to keep going, but at the same time I'm ready to be able to come home on Friday nights and not have to be out there in the elements. I swear it rained every week this season. What made it worse, its that it seemed to wait until time to head to the stadium before it started coming down.
So, anyway, the season is over, now its on to --shudders-- Xmas music. Especially since the concert is on the 3rd! Gotta love it when they move stuff up on you!
Stay tuned, I'm sure I'll be going more into detail about my frustrations with that next week.
