GOOOOOOOO TIGERS!!!!

So today was the day that Antonio and I got to go to the Memphis Tigers Basketball game against Gonzaga. I have been looking forward to it for a while I must admit, and the game was as great as I had expected! We went with my brother, Clif, and my bro in law, Cyp. They are picutred below....Clif is on the left, Cyp on the right.


I LOVE everything about watching the tigers. I love Coach Cal....
I love the pom squad and cheerleaders....(They just won some competitions.)
and I love to watch fan reactions.... Here is another picture of Clif, Cyp, and Antonio...

The Tigers led most of the game. I think there was one time that Gonzaga got up on us, but it was short lived. This is a picture of the score with one minute left in the game....



And the score at the end of the game... Thanks to some major fouling at the end from Gonzaga, the score changed a bit...

As I stated earlier, I love watching the Pom Squad dance. I would like to say I have those moves too, but that would be such a lie. I was a band dork, but it paid for my schooling so no student loans here!!! And no, I did not play the flute, I played trumpet. Anyway, this first video is of the
Pom Squad that the did that won them a FIRST place at Nationals....

Also, I LOVE watching Coach Cal. He is so animated and I just find him entertaining. He is the biggest cheerleader for the team when they do well, yet he is not scared to come down on them when they do stupid things. He yells at the refs which I find hilarious, he jumps, he kicks, he paces, I LOVE it. Here is a video that is less than 2 minutes that captures it all....

And finally, I love the fans....This video is from the beginning of the game. The student section has papers they hold up while the other team's lineup is being announced. After each player is named, they put down their paper and yell "YOU SUCK". How nice, right? And then when the lights go down, its TIGER TIME!!! That just sends chills all over my body.

If you don't share the love of the Memphis Tigers, well poo on you! just kidding....I have been a fan since 1999 when I started going to the University of Memphis and I am so excited for the team this year. #1 in the NATION and UNDEFEATED!!!

I must admit....I DO BLEED BLUE!!!

I almost feel like I was at the ballgame. Clif told us how exciting the beginning of the game was and I see what he was talking about. It IS a major production. Glad you all had a great time. I had a great weekend too with all my visitors--Tatum, your dad, and Clif, too. Looking forward to an exciting weekend next weekend too.

Cyp is hot. Can you get more pics of Cyp on the site? Preferably shirtless and covered in Jell-O.

David and I are hoping to get to just 1 game with Parker. HE LOVES BASKETBALL! And the Tigers for that matter. He runs around the house wearing his Tiger jersey all the time. I love all the pics! GO TIGERS!
