Monkey and I went to the Cotton Bowl game today.
It was her first football game. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big football fan, but I got the tickets, a parking pass and brunch for free. Monkey’s never seen football before, it’s not like we watch it at the house, and I thought she’d like the spectacle. I was ready to leave after the half time show, but she wanted to stay, go figure.
For some reason…
…the Arkansas fans all left early.
When does a team need its fans more, when they’re winning, or getting their butts kicked in a highly embarrassing manner? The true fans stayed until the end. The losers weren’t on the field today, they were in the stands.
But as a former band geek myself, I’d rather watch the marching bands. After all, the only reason for football in the first place is so you can have a half time show.
