What a day. I left Charleston around 5:15 in the morning. I headed north to Morgantown and eventually wound up in the Blue Lot around 10. Unfortunately the rest of the family didn't join me, so I had to represent well.

I spent the day with old friends, catching up, having a few beers and talking WVU Football. It was a solid day indeed.

Can a tailgate get any closer to the stadium? I mean seriously, we totally lucked out when a member of the tailgate got a call from a friend with an extra blue lot pass.


Once inside we listened to Landau Eugene Murphy Jr sing the national anthem. The Logan, WV native won this year's America's Got Talent competition on NBC.

The game? Oh yeah... the game! It didn't go well. WVU let LSU get a 27-7 lead in the first half. WVU stormed back in the 3rd quarter, cutting the LSU lead to 6. The crowd was rocking (as seen above).

Then this happened...

Game over. Oh well... hopefully we'll see them again when we hop to the SEC.

Wishful thinking?

It's Gameday... Finally!

Look who came to visit... cousins Dandy Andy and K-ristin! K-risten had been planning the trip for quite some time. Dandy Andy decided to surprise us and show up on our doorstep with a bouquet of flowers for my wife. He's crafty.

They were gold and blue! He's smart, too.

Saturday night we ordered sushi to go. That lobster roll was spec-tac-u-lar.

We can not confirm nor deny that there were duck farts involved.

And finally, it's gameday. Look who dressed up for the occasion. :)

Actually, we all dressed to for the occasion... even the out-of-towners.

We even talked to cousin K-risten's husband via facetime on the iPad. Hint, hint Morgantown readers. If you have an iPhone 4 on a wireless connection, you can facetime with us and see the Little Olive on a regular basis.

The game turned out well. Before the lightening, that is. Weather delays hampered play and the game was called sometime after 11 on Sunday evening. The above highlight is that of Tavon Austin taking a kickoff return 103 yards to paydirt.

Fun times.

Group picture. Someone didn't get the memo that you're supposed to wear gold on gameday. ;)

Oh yeah.

Thanks for visiting, cousins. You made the weekend a fun one!
