Death Valley before the game - The Golden Band from Tigerland
At the last minute, Seth and I managed to get tickets to the Florida game. We had a great time, despite the rain and the loss (Boo Gators!). I always forget how much I love the feeling of a sticky (or preferably, crisp) Saturday night at Tiger Stadium...the anticipation as the band marches on the field, the camaraderie with perfect strangers (high fiving or hugging a fellow fan after we have scored), the deafening roar of the crowd (and sometimes Mike the Tiger), and the overall feeling that there is no other place like Death Valley. Here are some pics at our tailgate. I am off to BR again tomorrow to spend some time with friends, go to Hollydays and to let Benjamin visit with his Nana.
