Homecoming '08 (It's hard to be humble)

Today was Silver Lake's homecoming - and our football game was against none other than our rivals - the Rossville Bulldawgs. The media has coined the phrase, "War on 24" every time we play each other. (for those of you unfamiliar, '24' is the 2-lane highway that runs through each of our towns. we're just a few miles apart)

This is how to TP a house! Small town kids know how to do it right.

This is the 5th grade (Taylor's) football team float. They took 2nd place.

So, to the game. I had to leave at the end of the 1st quarter to drive half an hour to Cami's school and watch her perform at half time, then turn around and drive back to Silver Lake to catch the rest of the game. When i left, it was 13 - 0, Silver Lake. When i returned with 3 minutes still left in the 3rd quarter the score was 40 - 0! The announcer stated over the loud speaker, "According to league rules, the play clock will now run continuously for the remainder of the game." Must have been cause we were 40 points ahead. Silver Lake went on to score another touchdown with less than a minute left on the clock and still managed to kick the extra point with 3 seconds left.

Big Lake wins BIG tonight; 47 - 0!!! I'll enjoy watching the highlights on the news here shortly. It was also the "game of the week" so they'll replay it again this weekend i think.

As for Mr. Sticky, I don't see him on the window tonight. Hope he's alright. I haven't gone out to check on him. He may have gone to the game too. I imagine it would take him a long time to hop back 6 miles.
