(The Forester twin brothers, Thad and Joseph)

This weekend was the Bama vs. Penn State Game which are two teams rich in tradition, who have not played eachother since 1983. Penn State's coach Joe Paterno, knew and played against Bear Bryant 12 times and has been coaching at Penn State for over 45 years. Because this game was so monumental and a reunion of sorts for the two teams ESPN Game Day came to Tuscaloosa to join in on the excitement. Since I have lived here I have been dying to attend an ESPN Gameday and see Kirk. So on Saturday we got up early and left the house at 7:15 and were there infront of the stadium where it was all going down by 8 am. We were on TV and I got to catch a glimpse of Kirk Herbstreit (Herbie) and Thad got to see Erin Andrews. We made a poster and everthing.

Also Joseph (Thad's bro in Texas) came to go to the Penn State Game and Pat and Ray came to stay with us for the weekend to enjoy the game day festivities. It was a day that started at 5:45 am and went all day. The temp was 95 degrees with a heat index 104-105. It was a scorcher but was out weighed by amazing Big Bad Wolves BBQ (I got the nachos of course) the amazing energy on the quad and the anticipation for a great game that night. We stopped by tents on the quad and ended up at Bo and Sylvia's to celebrate. The boys headed off to the game and had an amazing time, we won 24-3! It was an perfect game day....roll tide!
