orange prevails

Yesterday was our third annual pilgrimage to see the Lady Vols play at Georgia.

We represented a bright spot of orange in a sea of red, quickly bonding with other orange fans around us, sticking together for the good of the team.

We endured the endless playing of the Georgia fight song, the dawg cheerleaders, the dawg dancers, dawg t-shirts, all things red and Georgia.

But orange prevailed in the end, with the Lady Vols winning 72-63.

A great time was had by all, it was good to see friends and family together again. Newcomer Melissa was inducted into the fold, enjoying her day out with the girls.

The end to a great game was topped off by a stop at The Varsity for a victory Frosted Orange, a cool treat for the tired throats.

The plan for next year is for a road trip to Knoxville to see a home game, to hear 'Rocky Top' over and over, to see all things orange and Tennessee.

Candace Parker scores 30 points in her final regular season game for the Tennessee Lady Vols.

Orange fans unite!

Stacy in denial - trying to block it all out.

It's OK to let down your guard and allow your players to get to know you. They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. ~Pat Summitt

I can't remember the Vols without Pat Summit...quite the career. When I think of women's basketball I only think of two teams: the Vols and UConn.
