"The Swamp"


Dr.B. and I are driving up to Gainesville on Saturday to watch my alma mater, the University of Florida (UF) *Go Gators*, beat up on LSU!
This should be a very good game.  Last week in the AP poll Florida was ranked #7 and they were crushed by #1 Alabama.  After that loss, Florida fell to #14 and LSU moved up to #12.  They are will battle it out in the Swamp, which is the nickname for Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Hopefully UF will win so we can move up in the poll.

This will be the first UF football game Dr.B has ever attended.  I told him he is now officially a Florida Gator, whether he likes it or not 🙂  He bleeds orange and blue just like I do!  The game doesn’t start until 7:30, but were going to drive up early Saturday morning and tour the campus on our bikes.  I’m looking forward to showing Dr. B the campus where I spent four of the best years of my life.

Then at 5:30, were going to tailgate with my fellow alumni at the College of Journalism and Communications.  The college is right across the street from the stadium, so it will be a rowdy tailgate….you know who wild and crazy journalism students are. lol!

After the game we will probably hang out at one of the local bars, like Balls Purple, or Gators Sports Bar.  That’s if we can stand any more of the rowdy college kids.  We end up pulling an “old people” aka.  going to the hotel and calling it a night 🙂

Any big plans for the weekend? Any college football fans out there?

    This sounds like a fantastic date weekend!

    Our big plans are dealing with overgrowth and briers. Not nearly as fun and awesome.

      But, at least your doing at your new house! Now that’s what I call awesome!

    Sounds like fun…I’m a big college football fan! Your Gators have been a little shaky lately, hopefully they can pull it off.

    I’m in Michigan coaching my own team today, but it’s the big MSU/Michigan game today…BIG rivalry!
