Florida 23 - Arkansas 20
What a game! Are we ever glad it's over and glad that our Gators came out on top!I know Momma's said it before, but Daddy doesn't miss a game. Mom doesn't go near as often as she used to when her and Daddy were just dating, but she usually has a couple games of the season that she makes sure she tells my Pappy she wants to go to! Arkansas was one of those games this year. But, me and Momma got sick this week. The worst part about us getting sick is that Mom didn't get to go to the game today. Well, actually the really worst part is that I was going to get to stay with my Grammy, but had to stay home with Mom. Oh well, next game, okay, Grammy???
The Hogs gave us a run for our money and for part of the game they were beating us! We started sweating it. At half time, Momma baked some cookies. Because that's what she does when she gets nervous or anxious (or happy or sad or ANYTHING) she eats cookies.
I was worried about my Gators, and wondered WHY we weren't winning. Momma kept saying something about them "fumbling" the ball....I don't know what it means, but I do know they did it 4 times during the game???? Then it hit me.... I didn't have on my Gameday outfit. I wasn't wearing orange or blue! Daddy wouldn't believe it if he knew Momma hadn't dressed me in our colors on GAMEDAY... Come on, Momma... I know you have some serious sinus pressure affecting your thinking, but it's GAMEDAY!!!!
We got me changed and even added the "cool weather elements" to my cheerleading uniform. (Since it's actually cool here in Florida! Yay!!!)
We were ready for the 3rd quarter to start. Finally we scored to tie up the game.
In the 4th quarter those Pigs scored again! Oh no...
Thankfully, it wasn't long afterward, that we made a touchdown and got our extra point kick to tie the game 20-20!
Later Arkansas missed a field goal... I felt bad for their kicker. I mean, I am glad he missed the 2 that he did, but I still feel bad for him. I bet there's lots of Arkansas fans that's going to be mad with him!
I took a break and played a little.
We were on the edge of our seats for the rest of the game, just hoping and pleading with the Gator boys to win... We didn't want Daddy coming home in a bad mood!
Then, in the last few seconds of the game the Gators drove the ball down field and kicked a fieldgoal to win!
We would have liked a little better score, but a win is a win! And it's sure to be a good game when 2 SEC teams are involved! Momma sure hates that she missed it. It would have been such a fun game to watch in person, but she says she doesn't mind too much since I was here to watch the game with her!
