"Tis the Season"






It is that time of year again! Toro football is in full force. For many years I fought the whole highschool football tradition. I mean, didn't I already graduate some 20 years ago? Hadn't I already done my duty? But when the whole family decides that Toro Stadium is the only place to be on a Friday night, I had a choice to make. It wasn't a hard decision last year. We had number 97 to cheer on. And the post game fireworks (Buddy and Tia) made it fun! But all that has changed. I had to decide again whether to embrace the tradition or to fight it. I decided to invest in stadium chairs, get decked out in the only Toro shirt I own and participate with pride in "extreme red out" day. Does it get any better than sitting by my "Westwood Warrior" for 2 uninterrupted hours and singing the Toro fight song? ..."together always be, Ole!" Now, I actually look forward to Friday nights.

P.S. Curt's firm designed the Game Day shirts that the girls are wearing. I must say, they look great!

Cute Blog! I too will be switching to the "dark side" too soon. Being a true warrior fan myself(tear em up westwood) it will be hard but I'll chalk it up to one of those things I do for my kids.
