My brother Jeff was kind enough to sit with me in my North upper deck seats for the first half of the game. We had little rain through half time, but once the band finished playing, the rain started falling. Jeff and I are below in our rain gear, his more appropriately colored than mine!
Several minutes into the third quarter, we see the players take off running towards the locker room. Apparently there was lightning within five miles of the stadium, so the officials announced the first weather delay. Jeff, in all of his college sophomore wisdom, had worn a bathing suit under his pants, and promptly stripped down before the left the stadium. It looked lovely with his hiking shoes and socks! He had the last laugh though, as he was the driest out of all us!
Waiting out the 2nd delay
We finished the game (four hours and forty-six minutes after kickoff, a CU record) COMPLETELY soaked, but I had the best time at a Clemson football game that I'd had in quite some time. The Tiger "D" looked great and held BC to only 54 total yards and the offense performed well enough to get a great ACC division victory, but the best part was spending time in the rain with three of my favorite men! Despite the rain and delays and ruined tailgate plans, it was truly a great day.
Finally back at the car
Yet another reason why I think Clemson people are the best in the world!

With my handsome brothers at the tailgate
So good to see Sarah and Jonathan! Richard really was there...
We headed to the beach on Sunday after the game with Richard's family, then drove up to Calabash, NC to visit the Christmas store eat some yummy Calabash shrimp where it first originated.
Posing with the Christmas decorations- not quite ready

Right before his leg got broke

After spending some time in Columbia, I headed to Spartanburg Thursday to visit with Richard, who had left for the Upstate the night before. We went to the Wild Wing (the Wing is good for a big time in Spartanburg!) to watch part of the Clemson- GA Tech game with my parents.
Before the dismal 1st half...and the great 2nd half comeback
And cheered for the Terriers Saturday after some competitive corn hole and tailgating with a few of Wofford's finest alums.
