Another Game Day
We're off to Kansas City this morning to watch K-State play Iowa State in the Chiefs stadium later in the day. The purple people are only two hours away, and the Iowa State Cyclones must travel 3 1/2 hours, but the stadium will be filled with our purple and their red on a sunny day in the mid-sixties. Perfect day for a game!
The picture above is of my son and daughter-in-law who live in Dallas. Kirk and Amy are still big K-State fans and have a closetful of K-State garb, like good alums should. Wish they could join us today, but they'll be watching on TV and cheering the Cats on.
Only those who have gotten involved in college football or basketball can understand the enthusiasm the fans have for the games. Fans travel thousands of miles sometimes for bowl games. It's a matter of pride, loyalty, and support for the young men and women who play on these teams. It's not only the American way either. Other countries love their teams, too, and show up for games on a regular basis.
We'll stay in Kansas City tonight and come home tomorrow, when this girl has absolutely got to get some writing done. I did send in three stories for a new anthology book last night. Added to the one I sent last week, maybe one of the four will make it in. It will be months before I hear anything from the editor, so I'll start working on something new and push thoughts of this one aside.
