WVU Stripes the Stadium

It only took until September 28 for the first Big XII football team to step onto Mountaineer Field. In honor of such an auspicious occasion the powers that be decided that it would be super fancy for the fans to strip the stadium in blue and gold. I was a bit dubious that folks would follow directions: odd sections Blue, even sections & student sections gold. I myself was a bit fussy since almost all my WVU gear is gold. With a little digging I came up with an old school blue shirt (thanks Mom Matlick) and Chad grabbed his Metropolitan Billiards Parlor shirt before we headed out to the tailgate, which was delicious just in case you were wondering.

After fortifying ourselves with plenty of hamburgers, kielbasa (Chad, not me), baked beans, cucumber salad and cookies, we plodded up the hill to our gate.  And I was amazed to see that the WVU faithful had pretty much followed directions.

Ping was also amazed

It was a nailbiter of a game, quite literally in my case, but the Mountaineers were able to hold on and post a 70 – 63 victory!
