Badger Country

.

Yesterday we drove to Madison.

That's Badger Country!


Of course, I was MOST interested in seeing THIS sight.


Camp Randall Stadium, home gridiron for my beloved Bucky and His Boys!!!


Since I've never been here for an actual game, this little pilgrimage during the off season is for me a BIG highlight of our Wisconsin vacation.


I'm always surprised at how SMALL the field looks inside that huge stadium.


Yesterday some kind of girls soccer camp was going on, but when I looked way at the opposite end of the field - - -


I'm pretty sure I saw some of the "boys" playing a little football. Too bad they were so far away I couldn't tell WHICH boys they were.

You know, if they'd just wear their NUMBERS while they practice, it would sure help me identify them. Hehehehehehe


Just inside this particular stadium entrance is THIS fun place - - -


Bucky's own sports shop.


Here red and white are the order of the day.


I had plenty of time to shop to my heart's content.


I came away with a few new treasures - - - this shirt and bracelet amongst them.


And a little Bucky of my own to help me cheer our boys on to victory after victory this fall.

You look cute in your new duds!

What a big treat for you. Looks like it was a perfect day!

I was thinking that many, many years ago (early 70's) I was in the dorm of a friend in Madison Wisconsin playing the new Santana song Evil Ways over & over again on the record player.

Loving the shirt! Just wanted to drop in and say "hi"! I've been thinking about you-I'm very behind on blogging and reading blogs. We were on vacation the first part of July, and since we've been back little miss Bella has been in the hospital twice. Anyways...just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you-hope you are having a wonderful time! :)
