Today was the first Saturday of the college football season. Any of you who know Eric and I, know that we're both huge football fans. We used to mainly just watch NFL games, but since moving down south, we've gotten more and more into college teams and games. Down here, it's a much bigger deal than the NFL games. There's an OSU Alumni Club that gets together to watch Ohio State football games on Saturday's, and we've been going to watch games with this group ever since we moved down here four and a half years ago. Last year, they changed their location of where they get together to watch the games to the bar right beside Blackbaud, where Eric works, on Daniel Island. A perfect and ideal location for us, less than 8 miles away. So today, after Alli Ru woke up from her nap, we packed up and headed out. She absolutely LOVED it there. During commercials, the group will play OSU songs, "Hang on Sloopy", "I Wanna Go Back to Ohio State", etc... and everyone sings, claps and really gets into it. Needless to say, our little parrot tried to copy everyone, and clapped right along. She was adorable, and quite the hit in her OSU cheerleading outfit and her OSU koozie on her bottle. It didn't hurt that Ohio State beat Akron 42-0. O-H!!
