"My boys" are going bowling and I couldn't be any prouder!!!!
Oh, but mes amis, this isn't just ANY old bowl - - - this is the GRAND DADDY of all bowls - - -
The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
I'm sure we all have memories of many a New Year's Day watching the Rose Bowl Parade, and whether or not you love football as I do, I imagine somewhere in the house at least ONE television was tuned in to that most famous of all bowls - - - the Rose Bowl!!!!
Well, THIS YEAR, it will be "my boys" playing on that field. This is not our FIRST Rose Bowl Dance, Wisconsin has been to the Rose Bowl six times and won it three of those. But this is our first trip back there since January of 2000.
You'll be able to tell which ones are "my boys" - - - they will be the bold RED (and white) band running right up the middle of that smaller purple purple line. Running the ball right down the throat of the opponent - - - that is how football is PLAYED in Wisconsin.
And if you READ this blog, you better NEVER DARE pull for that little purple line. At least you better NEVER DARE let me KNOW you did.
And the red will NOT be confined to the gridiron. Oh no my friends!!! The entire stadium will be ablaze in crimson for the Badger Nation will flock to California in droves to support Bucky Badger!!!!
