A better ending would have been nice

Last year when it was official that the Huskers would be joining the Big 10, my sweet talking to score some tickets to the Ohio State game began!  Not an easy task for a Buckeye Grad when all of her family are Huskers through and through.  Luckily my dad's sister took pity on us and gave up two of her seats.  Mission accomplished!  We were stoked! 

Memorial Stadium. Where it all went down
So, Friday evening our little family of three loaded into the car and began our trek to Nebraska.
We stay Friday night in Omaha with my aunt, then after dropping Jamie off with one of my best friends, were off to Lincoln.

Your eyes do not deceive you.  I am in fact wearing {what used to be} my lucky buckeye hat.  Apparently the 2003 National Championship game used up all the luck, cause it brought none on Saturday.

We tailgated.  We enjoyed some friendly heckling with their fans and even found a few fellow Ohio Staters.   It was a good day.  Until the game happened.

At least we had kick ass seats
The first half was great!  We pretty much dominated the field and left the Huskers wishing they had stayed in the Big 12.  Well shortly after our QB got injured, the tables turned....and well, let's just say the ending wasn't so pretty and we left with our Buckeye's hanging low.

You know how you can tell we took this at the beginning of the game?  We're still smiling.
Welcome to the Big 10 Nebraska, consider this win a Big 12 parting gift.  Next year you're in our house and I don't think we'll be so accommodating!

And on a completely unrelated note.  Yesterday we went to my friend's little girls 1st Birthday party and I snatched this quick pic on her front porch.  Who is this little boy and what did he do with my baby??

That sucks, my school had a complete blowout on Saturday and lost like 56-3 or something embarrasing like that.

Even though the Buckeyes lost, it still looks like you and Mr. EyesCanSee had a great time. Your hat it too funny! I love it :)

That is an adorable Fall photo of Jamie.

Love your hat!! Sorry our team couldn't pull out a better performance for you. It was SO hard to watch...I sat there in stunned silence for almost the entire 4th quarter. Then on Sunday when I woke up and realized it wasn't all a dream....it broke my heart again (haha). Glad you still got to go though. :)
