We Can Be Friends!

It's no secret that it wasn't the best weekend for my Deacs... though before anyone accuses me of looking for a new team the second my team falters, I must make a stand and say that this is very much NOT the case. I have friends that will vouch for me that Maryland has always been my second favorite ACC team (hey, they aren't Duke or Carolina... not to mention my mom's an alum!) and really, let's be honest, I'm just trying to keep the peace with my soon-to-be husband (an alum and life-long Terp).

But above all, who can turn down tickets to a great football game... sure, it might have been 40 (or so) degrees outside and Maryland was by all accounts supposed to lose the game, but still... college football! I miss those days.

In the end, though, we were pleasantly surprised... we brought blankets, gloves and hats, and two jackets each and only needed them for the walk back to the car (great warm-up for the upcoming Army-Navy game)... and Maryland upset the Boston College Eagles (what's better than watching your second favorite team sack the Heisman Trophy hopeful, Matt Ryan?!).


  1. HEY. Easy on the Heels, there.

    Besides, ours was a heartbreaker. I mean COME ON. We totally should have won that game. My NCSU alum sister is probably happy. We aren't talking about it. Hrmph.

    Congrats to the Terps. And honestly? I only hate - HATE - dook. Spoken like a true Tarheel, eh?

  2. The sole year that I was at Northwestern's campus, the football team just couldn't win. I was there for homecoming when we were up 23 and still managed to lose. It was sad.

  3. I didn't see the game, but I certainly know the Deacons--my husband went to Wake Forest Medical School, and we lived down the street from the hospital for four years. BTW, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one listening to Christmas music. ;) I love your gingerbread house.

  4. Any other DC recommendations? I'm always looking!


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!

I do my best to post responses back on your own blog but if your question is applicable to everyone, I'll leave you a response here.
