I headed to Gainesville for the second-to-last home game of the season. It was a non-eventful win over Florida International. Nice chance to see some of the kids who will be playing next year and later.
By the end of the game, there were a couple of running backs handling the ball who I have never even heard of. They are probably walk-on seniors and this will be the only chance they will get to actually play some downs in a real game.
Mrs. Poolman stayed home, so I took a couple of my local Gator buddies for a same-day round trip.
It was a good time had by all. With the early kick-off, we were on the road by 5 am, but were home by 8 pm.
We have a new couple who have season tickets to the seats next to us. They are a couple of former Gator cheerleaders. Nice folks. This week, they brought their two girls, ages 7 and 3 with them. Both girls were very well behaved and quite cute.
The three year old arrived tired and grumpy, but slept through the entire first half in her mom’s lap. She slept like a rock througth all the noice and even the cheers. I joked with her mom, that she must be used to hearing them at home. She woke up for the second half and was quite the flirt. Very cute!
It has been a cool and rainy Sunday today. I ran a couple of errands and updated the checkbook. Such excitement. Mrs. P is making shrimp and grits for dinner. If it turns out as good as I expect, I’ll share it tomorrow.
