It’s almost time for game day!

In case you didn’t know yet, it’s game week!

I find myself a little more apprehensive about it this year. I think it’s because we start out with a BIG opponent right away. I like to have a few non conference games out of the way to really have a feel of the team before we go into conference play. Even with my reservations, I am excited.

Also we have to win or my husband will be unbearable. This is the only week he really cares about football (he’s ridiculous, I know) and his state, can’t beat mine.

It’s also game week for Husker volleyball and I’m excited to see them on the court this year. I am just hopeful that Nicklin Hames will be able to return after this weekend off for her.

I can’t wait for a great weekend of sports.

Now here are your flakes.
