Road Trip to Purdue. . . There and back again.

My brother, red_sput, and I were chatting this morning, and he made the comment, "Well, I like to post about my weekend before it becomes irrelevant." Well, that's never stopped me. I've been known to post about things three weeks old before.

But yeah, I ought to talk about my weekend.

While Friday night found me in a funk, I had plans for Saturday. My brother was flying in from Seattle to march with the Purdue Alumni Band, and my parents had tickets to the game.

I took what amounted to a nap on the couch on Friday night, and woke up around 4:30 AM on Saturday, prepared for my drive out to Purdue to see the Purdue-Northwestern game. I showered, hit my altar for a morning devotional, and prepared to leave.

red_sput had informed me that Purdue was trying to "black out Northwestern", meaning that people should all wear black and that this would look awesome from the stands. I grabbed my black Ohio State fleece and made a run for the car. I pulled out of my drive way at 5 AM sharp, being perfectly on time for a change.

I was headed down the street when I realized that I had forgotten my hat. This didn't bother me much, though, because the hat was a White Sox hat, and Purdue was playing a team from Chicago. Showing up at Ross-Aide Stadium wearing not only my black Ohio State stuff but also my stuff from Chicago might cause a bad reaction. Crazy thing, college football.
