I've had a super busy but awesome weekend! I visited my fam and hung out in Huntington Friday evening thru Saturday Morning, for the Friends of Coal Bowl. Marshall lost to WVU in OVERTIME! It was a complete heartbreaker, and I totally whimpered and cried about it. Aside from the WVU fans who sat at home and watched it on tv, then harassed me on Facebook when it was over, it was a great game - so great that the WV governor renewed the Friends of Coal Bowl contract for another 10 years! It's going to take me a whole year to recover from that experience. My husband still has a sore throat and no voice, two whole days later!
Saturday evening we hopped off our home on the hill, down to Peden Stadium and watched our Ohio Bobcats play the Toledo Rockets. I was completely moved and teary-eyed when the Bobcat football players came running onto the field carrying an American flag before the game started. September 11th has touched everyone in a personal, emotional, mental, or even physical way. I must mention that I really enjoyed everyone's September 11th memorial posts this weekend - I didn't get time to comment on them, but I loved them all - especially the "where were you?" posts. Great writing!
