Air Force

The traditions at the Air Force Academy
This whole week before the Air Force game I have been so nervous.  Melissa, Alex, and Kylie all stayed home for work or Halloween festivities.  Tyler was on the travel squad for the team.  So Helen was again my favorite travel-buddy.  We have so much fun.  We went with the team to the movie 'Red' and pigged out on buttered popcorn.  It was a fun time.  The room we had was a nice big suite and so Helen stayed on the hide-a-bed in her own connecting room.  Then then next morning we went for about a 4 mile walk.  The hotel was on a golf course so we walked around the lake there.  The weather was beautiful.  The mountains remind me of Utah.  I will not miss having to play Air Force but it is always an experience to be in their stadium and see the traditions and the Cadets marching on the field (they do a sudden run to the seats before the game), the falcon doing its diving flight around the stadium and most of all I love the F-16's that fly over right before game time.  They come and go so fast you have to pay attention or you miss them.

Showing Respect after the game for school song
You take an already stressful game and add some more stress and you get this kind of game I don't enjoy sitting through.  I was so glad when it was over!  We won 28 to 23 but it should have been 35 to 10 for us if we had not made some costly errors.  Winning makes the bus ride, the flight, and the whole week better!!

College Game day coming next week for TCU game!
