Ruby Tuesday - Root, Root, Root for the Home Team...
Patti, her mom and I went to a college basketball game on Saturday. The game was the University of Hartford Hawks
vs the Boston University Terriers. I wanted to use our U of H red and white for Ruby Tuesday. And the excitement never fades - the colors of BU are also red and white, double the fun! The game is great for me, because of my wheelchair, I and my companions get to sit at a table floorside, and in front of he pep band and (very) loud student section. This is such a fun place to sit, it's loud, the action is right now and when the band played the theme from Rocky, it was impressive! Cameron was working and couldn't be with the band for this game, but Allegra (flute) and boyfriend Rob (soprano sax) were playing. A treat for all. And my pictures were taken from my seated position, and everybody looks far larger from this vantage...
The usual sights in red are everywhere. UH played in the white home uniform, BU in their road red. Cheerleaders were there, and the ubiquitous smiling Howie the Hawk mascot. There was a game of course, but the other team was bigger and faster, so the results of the game were not to our liking, with the score:
BU - A Lot
UH - Way Less
Something like that! Whatever the score, a great day was had by all!
