First off Thank you all for the support and encouragement. This Saturday was an awesome day.
We started off our Saturday at Almedinger Park tailgating with some friends and their families, the first dillema this morning at 8:30 was no one remembered to bring a football, so off to the MDEN tent we go. Half and hour later, we return to the park, the boys were outfitted properly for a football game, sporting new Nike Jumpman shirts, and toting a brand new football. Many games of takle football were played and lots of food consumed.
We then made our way to the stadium and because of this boards generosity had some fantasitc seats! Seeing the boys wide eyed and enthused watching the A-10's flyover was awesome. Then the game started, and Michigan scored and scored again. Watching touchdowns makes young boys hungry, so we grabbed some Popcorn and pretzels and sodas to wash it all down. Then Michigan scored some more and the boys leaned the fight song!
Halftime greeted us with trip to the Carvel Ice cream woman who kept the boys nicely sugared up for the second half grind. The boys thououghtly enjoyed thier day, Thanks to the fine and OUTSTANDING MGoBlog Community. We made out way back to the car and headed home. Walked in the door and handed the boys Mom $400 in cash. My wife promptly gathered up the young girls and took them to the movies, I mean the Girls need something to right?
All in all we raised just over $500 for this family. Plus tickets and a Saturday they will not soon forget.
THANK YOU SO MUCH MGOBLOG FAMILY!
* Oh and it was Military appreciation as well, So thank you to our Vets on this board. I did 14 years in the Army and it is always humbling to see so many people respect out Vets.
