MOUNTAINEERS VS. Pitt.....Victory!

Our family had so much fun Monday night because we got to go to the WVU vs. Pitt game at the Coliseum in Morgantown. Brad's dad got 6 tickets from his business partner for Christmas, so he wanted to take us...mainly because they wanted to see the girls' reaction to a basketball game and that atmosphere. The Bennetts are a basketball family, as is mine, so it was a good fit. In fact, my dad and sister, Heather, were also there. We didn't meet up with them, though. You'd understand if you saw how high up our seats were. ( Very steep and exhausting to do with the little ones if you had to do it too many times.) Anyway, Brad and I went to the WVU vs. Pitt football game this year, which ended up causing hearbreak throughout the state when we lost and doomed our almost definite opportunity to go to the national championship game. So, we were looking for a win! And, we got it. It was very fun. Bethany got excited about the slushies, but would pay attention closely to the game and any floor events that took place during halftime or timeouts. She always wanted to know where the "man with the gun" was....the mascot Mountaineer. Mallory clapped right along with all of the other fans. They truly enjoyed the experience.....almost as much as Brad enjoyed sharing it with them. These times with our little ones are so precious! I love to see them get excited about something that I also enjoy.

Fun for ya'll!! I'm glad the girls enjoyed the Bball experience. I think Brad might have been heartbroken otherwise.

Sounds like fun!! I love going to professional or college basketball games. They are a lot of fun, and A LOT better than they are on tv. At least I think so.

Bethany told me she's going to be a "dance cheerleader." Can you please do something about that before she gets much older? Make sure she gets to play soccer and basketball so maybe she'll be too distracted to be a cheerleader :)
