Moving on to happier things... Like the Sun Devils!

Yes, college football is here! In our house you gotta be a Devils fan or you are sent packing. Last Thursday was the annual ASU scrimmage where all the fans can come and watch the team practice for free (happens to be my favorite price.) We took Tabby and Rex. Ella had to stay behind because taking a toddler to a football game is miserable. The kids were bored and hot until the practice was over and they got to go down on the field and meet the players and cheer-da-weeders as Tabby used to call them. The players look so tiny up in the stands and then when you get down on the field and meet them they seem like giants. I can't remember the last time the kids were so excited and we had to literally drag them off the field.
Watching the action.
Starting to get bored and hot.
We found Sparky!
Hoping...
Dale says this guy's gonna be in the NBA someday so he wanted Rex to get his picture taken with him. I have no clue who he is.
Out on the field after the scrimmage.
The ladies love RexGoooo Devils!
The kicker let Rex try his helmet on. Best. Ever.
Ringing the victory bell.

We are the same way with the Cougars! Michael took our boys to the scrimmage and Carter was in heaven talking to the players! So fun!

So much fun! No wonder the kids didn't want to leave. Those pictures are darling.

That looks like a blast! I didn't even know they did that. Shows you how much I'm in the loop of things!

OK, if I'm a student at ASU, I should get discounts on my tickets, right? Anyone want to do a girl's night and go? Or maybe better - a date night? Did you see Isaiah Williams? He is in one of my classes, but it is online and I don't know what he looks like and his picture isn't on the football roster.
