Andy and I were given tickets to this year's Poinsettia Bowl and just had to take advantage of them. We left work and made it to Qualcomm Stadium early to enjoy the tailgate party before heading inside for the game.
I give you the TCU band at the tailgate party, and the sea of blue and orange inside the stadium after kick-off.
Qualcomm before it filled with people. Did I mention we went inside early?
We were surprised by the disproportionate amount of Boise State fans to those from TCU, but everyone seated around us was pleasant and we enjoyed the game. I'd never been to a college football game, let alone one this big, and I loved all the chants and cheers that came from the crowd as naturally as if they were breathing. All and all it was something different, and it turned out to be a fun little evening together.
P.S. - Nicole, this one's for you!
