Liberty Bowl

Kevin won us some awesome tickets to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis! He won four tickets to the game on the 50 yard line, 4 tickets to the pre-game buffet, a parking pass right at the stadium, shirts, hats, and 4 tickets to a basketball game on New Years Eve that he sold to pay for our hotel room. We took the Bradley's with us and had an awesome time! The only bad part of the whole weekend was that we were FREEZING! We got there at 11:30 am and left at 8:30 pm and the temperatures were in the 20's with a wind chill of about was COLD! I had on layers but still couldn't feel my toes by the 4th quarter...AND it went into overtime!
Oh, so COLD!! Some of the idiot young girls were trying to be cute and stylish and had barely anything they regretted that decision by the end!! ha!
Here is our view of the game from our seats:

The pre-game buffet had Memphis BBQ, of course...but after most people had eaten, both bands came in for a battle of the bands. It was pretty cool!
Love me some Bradley's!!
Jon, Kevin and I all grew up together in Newport. Kevin says Jon is his oldest friend. He was super supportive when Kevin was at John 3:16, and I'm glad we could give back to them by treating them to the ballgame! :-)
At this point, we knew it was cold but we had NO IDEA how cold we would get!
The pre-game buffet tickets said it was indoors, but it didn't say it was in an old warehouse and we would still freeze! It basically blocked the wind. Oh well...
Tusk....GO HOGS!
And, somehow, we managed to win the game! Then, we all headed to Tunica to donate some of our money to Mississippi at the slots and roulette table! :-)
And, drove home in the snow...question is, how much will it snow??? :-)

R.I.P to ole Tusk - who knew this was going to be his last appearance? You might have one of last pics of him, Lori.
