My hubby was home for 5 days. Super duper. That's like the longest time we've spent together consecutively in months. It's a record. But come Xmas, we'll be breaking it with a straight 10 day! We'll probably kill each other. Stay tuned for that exciting post.
I promised a KSU vs WVU Men's Basketball recap, and I know y'all have just been sitting on the edge off your seats waiting, and I have finally had two minutes to sit down and chat with y'all about it! So put on your funderware........here...........we...........go....................
The night started off waiting for our friends John & Lori to arrive from Manhappiness to our little hickville paradise. They were late. But forgiven because they had to round up their FOUR dogs. They could be two days late and I'd forgive them because of that little fact!!!
Anyway. About 7pm, we made our way down to the arena and met up with my crazysauce family. Which some of them........ahhhheemmmmm.cough.coughTom.......had been bellied up to the bar since 4:30. Sottaly Tober.
And here is John & Lori:
Remember that post about the non-shavin' happenin' up in here? Well, it's over with. The razor met it's match and all is smooth rays of sunshine in the Wiksten Household. Praise baby Jesus.
Tip off happened and away we went. Some of us more than others on the team.
This was a special game played in Wichita at the fairly new Intrust Bank Arena. First basketball game we've ever been to there, probably about the only one played there so far. But it was a packed house! 15,004 people. We decided that if John, Lori, my Aunts, Uncle, Cousin, Ryan and I wouldn't have come, it'd be 14,996 people. And that would have been tragic. We made that game. Totally.
I gotta say, I'm just sorta into basketball. I'm getting more interested and more interested every year, well, and anything that has to deal with the Cats I'm obsessed, but pre-Ryan, nope, hated basketball. See Ryan played in high school, I guess being 6'4" helps, so he always has a game on during the season. I guess it's just starting to catch on. I'm diggin' it. It's growin' on me.
But my favorite part of the game, besides sitting literally 6 rows behind the players (WOOP WOOP FOR GOOD SEATS! THANKS UNCLE BILL!!)..........was watching Coach Martin! Jesus tits that guy has some great facial expressions.
The guy never cracks a smile during a game. Totally great guy after the games, but during........could make you shit your pants with one stare-down.
Or you could take a class in..........
He teaches well.
We played hard. We played good. But, we ended up losing in double overtime. Bummer. But it was a game of a lifetime. So. Much. Fun!!
I think it's going to be an annual event, especially since WVU is now in our Big 12 conference. I'm excited!
After the game we were all a little tired. So we went back to the house, drank a few more brews and hit the sack. Poor Ryan had to get up and work the next day.....but not John, Lori and I!!! God that day off was sooooo nice.
BTW, i need to give credit where credit is due for this post. I couldn't have done it without my trusty sidekick. He slaved away helping write this.
