Brennan graduated from Penn State in 2000 and is a proud alumnus of the university. He introduced me to the amazing experience of a Penn State football game a couple of years ago and I had never seen anything like it.
Naturally, this was quickly added to Tori’s Bucket List. 🙂
We spent the night in State College with a friend of ours last night so that we wouldn’t have to get up as early today, given that the game started at noon. We are so glad that we did that!
Tori experienced many new things today – chilly air (she was well-bundled up, of course), lots of loud cheering and music, and the contagious excitement that fills the stadium.
She looked adorable in her cheerleading outfit that was a gift in February from our friend Michelle Day and her family. Thank you so much for your generosity! The PSU blanket they gave us at the same time kept us very warm today.
In addition to all of this, Tori even met a Penn State student! We noticed that a young man in the student section directly below us was dressed up (for Halloween) as a giraffe! We had been talking to the security guard about Tori and he volunteered to go down to ask the “giraffe” to come take a picture with Tori. 🙂 And he did!
To make the day even more perfect, Penn State beat Illinois. A win is always more fun!
WE ARE…PENN STATE! 🙂
