Facebook Friday



Who is this charming fellow? Why Buzz the Yellow Jacket from Georgia Tech along with the Ramblin Reck from Georgia Tech.  Marvin and I are so pleased to be able to enjoy college football in person at the Bobby Dodd stadium this year.

Now that we have a house in Georgia, it is easy to get to the games and no over night hotel bills for us.  At one of the games we hope to have our photo made in front of the Reck. GA Tech is offering this little perk to the season ticket holders. We are hoping the lines will not be too long as Marvin wants a photo to frame. Since he got all three of his degrees from GT, he should get to go to the head of the line.:)

The opening game is against Tennessee, our enemy to the north. Marvin and his good friend, Barry, are headed to the game Monday evening. I allowed Barry to use my ticket as I am more interested in the games at Tech. This game will take place at the Mercedes Benz arena in Atlanta.  I am also winning major brownie points with Marvin because this game takes place on our 41st anniversary and I am not pitching a hissie fit over his plans for the day!!

Who is your favorite team?? We are also big BAMA fans so in addition to Go Tech Sting Em, I must say ROLL TIDE.

Good for you for not raising a fuss over the way Marvin has chosen to spend your anniversary! I bet in the long run you will come out ahead. Congratulations on 41 years of marriage! We celebrated our 45th in March. Time passes so quickly, does it not?

We live 30 minutes East of Morgantown WV, so our favorite team had better be WVU's Mountaineers! haha

Have a great weekend, Arlene!

I've been to a few games at GA Tech. Very nice crowd. I love the ACC feel of fun, not murder.

You are a great wife to allow Marvin to take Barry to the game. No wonder you have been married 41 years...give and take is the best way to go.

My favorite team is the University of Florida - Go Gators!!! We are season ticket holders and used to go to all the away games too. The last few years we have not made the away trips but there is a lot of cheering in our house instead. So happy the season starts on Saturday. Hope Marvin has a great time and of course beat Tennessee as they are one of our dreaded foes too. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Good for you, Arlene, not pitching a hissie fit! There will be other games that you will enjoy together ... and really, all those weekends at Grimmwood are very special times for you and Marvin. An anniversary is so much more meaningful than just one day.

Thanks for the chuckle about not having a hissy fit! Not a big football fan here; I tend to root for whoever the underdog is!

I don't watch much college football but I'm a HUGE Dallas Cowboy fan! I love them....and have for many years! Hugs!

We aren't sports people here - so no favorite team! :)

PS = Happy Anniversary! We just celebrated our 36th!

Linda said...

Yup! I'm like the Lavender Dreamer - Dallas Cowboys all the way!!

Well, you know I am an Auburn girl. Our anniversary is today...33.
We are celebrating today with all our family at dinner. Jeff's parents always took the kids out on their anniversary. We usually try to do something special together every 5 years. I am so grateful for a long marriage. The older we get the better.
Enjoy the weekend.

Happy Anniversary Sandy!! One of the reasons I like the Tech games is that they are low key compared to attending a game at Tuscaloosa. Those engineers don't get riled too easily!!

I'm sure you'll find all sorts of fun things to keep you occupied while Marvin is at the game, Arlene :) Like Sandy, we tend to only celebrate big every 5 year anniversary. And this one, being our 40th will be celebrated by a trip to Hawaii--my first time there! Can't wait!!
