What a perfect day!!!
in the picture. . . my sister, Melissa. . . . .me. . . . and my sister's sister-in-law and my good friend, Angie.
Sun shining. . . 60 degrees plus. . . good friends and family. . . and a Missouri Tigers Win over arch rival Kansas!!!!!!
It was a nail biter. . .coming down to the last 4 seconds and a field goal to win the game!!!!
This border show-down is held at Chief's Arrowhead Stadium in KC. . . this is the 3rd year for it.
In 2007. . . .MU won, but it was one of the coldest nights of the year. . .but one of the best games I have ever been to. . . MU was ranked #1 in the nation after that game. . .If Kansas had won, they would have been #1.
In 2008. . . .KU won. . . it was cold and it rained/sleeted/snowed the entire game. . .luckily we were under the overhang from the section above, so we stayed relatively dry. Still a pretty good time.
And 2009. . . .MU won. . . we were due an absolutely perfect day after the previous two years. . . .
already looking forward to 2010!!!!!
I love that my sister, cousins, and many friends all go to this game together!!!! Even a few of our Jayhawk family members and friends also attend. . . .that is what makes it fun!!!!! I love the tradition of this. . . .hopefully they will keep having the Border Showdown. . . and hopefully we will be able to go every year!!!!!!
