Go West, Go State!

“Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.”~ George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright

My surprise weekend getaway? West Lafayette, IN for the Purdue-PennState football game!

It’s good that my husband’s new job is facing the right direction. I drove him to work so we could leave straight from there, saving an hour on the 5-ish hour drive.


The team equipment bus has a blue stripe on top, just like the football helmets

For me, it’s all about the experience, not the outcome. Before the game, we partied with the Alumni Association.


Go State!

During the game, we cheered the team and their touchdowns.


All good cheers: the Lion, cheerleaders and frapps

Of course, the experience is made better by a victory! By the 4th quarter, there were more Penn Staters milling about than Purdue fans. There is a walkway near the visitor’s section, and a lot of us stood around and talked and took pictures with the Lion. I liked the casualness of it all. Dinner at 9 Irish Brothers rounded out the weekend.  And a Celebratory Frapp, of course.
