Where the Weekend Went ~We Love Bison Football

Hubby scored a couple of tickets for 
the college football season opener.

Bison Football Eve was celebrated at the Wurst Bier Hall 
with our good friends, the LaFaves.
Ashley and her fiance, Logan, were able to join us too.
It was fun to chat with her, as she had also just finished her first week of school.
We compared teacher stories...
some things similar, some things very different.
She teaches second grade, and I teach high school.

The next morning, we donned our gold apparel.
It was to be a Gold Rush in the Dome.

First stop...Downtown Fargo.
We visited some quaint little shops,
We stopped by before opening hours, and since it was raining,
the owner invited us in off the sidewalk.

Hubby got to visit with one of the owners/brewers.

Their brew menu reflects creativity and a great sense of humor.

We enjoyed a beverage...

...and shelter from the rain and hail!

Next stop...campus and the tailgating lot.

Of course, these two took much interest in

We found our seats before the pre-game festivities,
raising the National Championship Banner.
You can see our seats were up in the rafters!

I found this photo on-line...
someone on the other side of the banner!

The game was exciting, ending in a tie.
The first over-time in the history of football in the dome!

In dramatic fashion, the Bison pulled off a touchdown,
a defensive stop, and a win!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are
ready for another week of work!

Take care,
