Apple Cup 2012
Twas an afternoon just made for football. It was also the perfect day for an Apple Cup. Late November Friday, a gray overcast, the presence of a chilling wind sweeping in from the rolling hills, the threat of rain or snow, temps hovering around 35 ish and 30,000 rabid Cougar fans. After breakfast at the Harvester The Mayor and I headed off on the back road thru Waverly. The fields were wet and muddy not a day fit for working the land. We skirted the traffic jungle, parked and were at Trailer Trash Ave by 11:30 and found it was a good day for football. Jerry had a tank full of Apple Cup Ale that was tasty, easy on the palette and a great starter for the game.
Arrived at our seats in Sect 3 and put the 100-400 on the Mk3. It did a very respectable job considering how krap the light was. The Cougs marched right down the field a put 3 on the board. Then we were hit by fumblitis and coughed up 3 in a row, which the Huskies advantage of took :) But we managed another score before half and that made it respectable. But hang on to your undies grandma cuz the second half started and stayed purple and gold into quarter 4. A bold call to go for two and bring it to a field goal succeeded and lo and behold we tied it up forcing over time. Being a rookie fotog I'd taken the big lense off and installed the pancake, so I missed the play of the game when DL Kalafitoni Pole intercepted Price and almost ran it back to end it. But with our new possession we eventually saw the light and kicked the 3 winning a fantastically played contest. On this day the Cougs are kings of the Apple Cup!!
