One Week Ago Today

My dad, his friend, my husband and I were at Dolphins Stadium.

We were wandering around, taking in the NFL Experience. It was so cool! They had places where you could hone your football skills by passing, punting or receiving. They also had an area where you could anounce some of the greatest NFL moments. They had statues of players from every team in the NFL set up, with football gear on from the shoulders down. You could climb up into the statue from behind, and you looked like a player from that team. They had the Lombardi trophy on display in this glass case and you could take pictures of it! And they had tons and tons of stuff to buy. It was so cool!

Then we went into the stadium. We watched the pre-game show which was a performance by Cirque du Soleil.

Then Billy Joel sang The Star Spangled Banner. His singing left a bit to be desired. But! The coolest part (possibly of even the entire game) was when the jets flew over the stadium. We were in the top part of the stadium, and we were in the Colts endzone, so they flew right over us. They were so quiet, but so powerful. It was amazing. I still get goose bumps just thinking about it.

The game started with the coin toss. And my favorite quarterback was captain. Dan Marino.

The game started off in a very terrifying way. That Bears guy, Hester something or other returned the kick for a touchdown. And then we scored a touchdown, but missed the extra point. And then the Bears scored another touchdown. And then after that, things go fuzzy, but I do know we were up by 2 points at the end of the half.

And then Prince came out to do the halftime show. That was pretty great. Although I remember sitting there and seeing that sheet go up and seeing his obscene silhouette. Icky.

And then the second half began. And oh, it was amazing.


Did I mention the rain? Huh, that's funny. Because there was a lot of it. We were soaked despite the Saran-Wrap ponchos that we wore.

And because of this thorough soaking, I have been sick since Wednesday. Sick as a dog.

But it was so worth it.

It was truly awesome, and truly awesome to be there with you!

By the way, is it really PC for a vet assistant to say "sick as a dog"?
