But I'd love to be grilling some Oregon Duck today at the Fiesta Bowl.
We contemplated making the trip. In fact, the day after major back surgery November 26, Randy asked the nurse practitioner about making the trip. To her credit, she didn't laugh in his face, though she did shoot an amused glance in my direction.
"Don't you have a follow-up visit with us on January 2?" she asked. "I don't think I'd skip that appointment for a football game."
Randy is doing well, though we did find out at the appointment yesterday that he will need additional testing because of some weakness in his left foot.
The 'Cats will have to do it without us. Some of my family will be cheering the 'Cats on in person. My parents made the trip.
Legacy Brick, which will be installed in the new West Stadium at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. (This is the replica brick. I didn't get a photo of the case.) It's the perfect gift for lifelong Wildcat fans who've had season tickets on the west side of the stadium for years.
My Dad was a member of the 1953 K-State football team, which had a 6-3-1 record, including a 4-2 mark in the Big Seven Conference under head coach Bill Meek. K-State's six wins were the most by a Wildcat squad in nearly 20 years, since the 1934 team posted a 7-2-1 record and won the Big Six title.

My Grandpa Shelby Neelly played football at K-State, too. Is it any wonder we bleed purple around here?

If you didn't watch this video on my Facebook page yesterday and you're a Wildcat fan, it will give you chills. I promise. (Stafford County's own Jared Loomis is standing by Coach Snyder and laughing at K-State safety Ty Zimmerman. It's so cool to see Jared on this national stage. The Macksville native was in Stafford County 4-H, and that's where I got to know him, just a little bit.)
