My good buddy Andy is high up at NU, so we got to spend some time touring the NU athletic facilities yesterday with the kids. Wow, what a time together. I have photos, stay tuned. I'm not sure if Dad or the kids had more fun :) I"ll let you decide.
It's amazing to be in a huge, empty stadium. You feel really small. Sam and I both were able to catch touchdown passes; we all got to stick our finger in the field turf and pull the rubber tires out; I tried a 47 yard field goal. . .I may or may not have made it; Sam ran a kickoff back for a score, and Malachi was an excellent Center (he has the build don't you think? ) We also got to re-enact one of my favorite NU-CU plays from the last few years. With the Big 12 going away the "rivalry" will be over, but the memories remain. Enjoy the photos!:
Sam and Malachi run the play (we've got 4. . .hey we're working on it)
My Field Goal try (not the 47 yarder):
The Third Largest T.V. in the World:
Malachi's Center Stance:
Eden totally not into it:
The precise spot, (yard line, end zone, etc) where Ndamukong Suh stepped on Cody Hawkins' head in 2008. :) Watch the clip, then relive the experience. (except Andy is about 200 pounds lighter than Suh, and I'm about 200 pounds heavier than Cody Hawkins):
Next year's Christmas Card: (if you have zoom on your browzer, check out Malachi's face in this one. . .classic)
Thanks a million Andy! I won't forget this afternoon,. . . . great times.
