Marinefrog and I stayed in West Lafayette so we got to tour the campus early yesterday, have lunch at XXX Root Beer (pretty darn good - sat with a player’s parents), and mingle with the Purdue fans. Purdue fans were overall a solid B in welcoming the Frog fans. Vast majority were inviting and gracious. And then I sat down for the game. In walks two younger Purdue Grads from Chicago. Alumni and not students. Thing One and Thing Two. Pretty drunk at kickoff. The Purdue fans boo the Frogs forcefully when they take the field. T1 and T2 really boo’d with authority, but okay, their field. Then the game starts. Interception. T1 is shoving me and sticking his hand in my face. Yelling in my ear. Way out of line. My Godson, who lives in Indy, moves over and sits between me and his pregnant wife. Wants to pound T1. I tell him no that we’ll just tell security if T1 insists on being a jerk. Game progresses. Frogs take the lead. T1 and T2 quit yelling insults and want to talk about TCU’s players. Conversation becomes more sportsman like in tone. T1 and T2 miss halftime and come back with more beer. Now really drunk. TCU starts to pound. Take a solid lead in the Third Quarter. Bigger lead at the end of the third quarter. T1 and T2 leave for more beer. They say they will be back. Never see them again. TCU wins! Frogs from all over the stadium crowd in to sing the alma mater. Purdue plays rock music so loud the frog fans and team can’t hear to sing. But wait, the music is good. Team and fans begin dancing to the Purdue music blaring now over the stadium sound system. All Frogs celebrate together! Great Day! Marinefrog and I are headed home with a win!
