Game Day

I'm completely exhausted from my wonderful day at the nation's most storied college football stadium. After a cold and blustery day yesterday, Game Day turned out to give us beautiful weather, at least for most of the game: sunny, mid-50s, and light wind. The weather had kept us from touring the campus yesterday, but we got a chance to show the Admiral Emeritus the Golden Dome and other highlights today.

After a strange first quarter where Holy Cross appeared to be wearing the Irish football uniforms, allowing the 1-7 Syracuse Orange to gather a 3-0 lead, the Irish finally showed and wound up winning a critical victory for the BCS-enabling win. The Irish topped the Orangemen, 34-10.

Anyway, too tired to continue tonight. Thanks to CQ reader TJB for the kind gift of the tickets -- the FM, Admiral Emeritus, his wife, and myself enjoyed the day tremendously.

UPDATE: I really was so tired that I didn't realize I'd left off the last part of that last sentence ...
