Sunday outing

I was invited again this year to see the #4 ranked University of Tennessee Lady Vols play at Georgia. My sisters-in-law (Kay and Sue) are BIG fans (Sue is a former basketball player and coach). There were eight of us in all, including niece Heidi and 4 of her close friends and college buddies. We stopped at a nearby Cracker Barrel before the game, and were very conspicuous in our bright orange amidst a sea of red Georgia fans. The traffic around the game site was thick and parking hard to come by, but we got to our seats just as the players were being announced and right before the opening jump.

Tennessee made the first basket and never looked back, being ahead of Georgia the entire game. Tennessee was not quite up to their best game, a lot of missed shots, and no dunks today. The highlight was when the Georgia coach was called on a technical, throwing his stat sheet into the air. The final score was Tennessee 52, Georgia 41.

Heidi just had a wisdom tooth extracted on Friday, and was our chauffeur. The trip was made more exciting by a couple of near misses in traffic, Sue's and Kay's hilarious inability to work the seat belts or windows, a sudden stop to rescue an injured dog, and Kay's funny story she was sent via e-mail. After the latter, Heidi was laughing so hard that she had to put on the ice pack for her recent tooth surgery. A great time was had by all!

Remember that friend I mentioned who sells tuperware for the passionate? I have a post about here today, I thought you might get a kick out of.

Sounds like lots of fun - a day you could have written several posts about, perhaps?!
