As of this posting at 6:00 p.m., we’re departing for the Sugar Bowl in less than 15 hours. To say we’re all getting excited is an understatement. The fabulous five traveling are me, my mom (Rhonda), my sister (Erin), and by buddies Regan and Lorne.
I’m getting ready to pack my bags and my sister Erin is spending the night at our place since we need to be at the airport by 7 a.m. to check-in. I spent today taking care of Ensen and mapping out our little roadtrip from Houston to New Orleans during his naps. I think we’re set, but if not, Lorne is borrowing his cousin’s Garmin GPS System to help get us to The Big Easy safe and sound.
This will most likely be my last Sugar Bowl post on this blog for a day or two (I’ll see if I can get Kelly to post daily updates of our travels), so I thought I’d go out with a bang. The photo of the guy in the upper right is Nostradamus, who according to Wikipedia is “a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous world-wide.” In reading a couple of chapters from his famous book Les Propheties, I came across some of his predictions for the Hawaii Warriors vs. Georgia Bulldog game on New Year’s Day:
FINAL SCORE: UH defeats Georgia, 51-48 in overtime
COLT BRENNAN: 42-60, 537 passing yards, 5 touchdowns, no interceptions
JASON RIVERS: 13 catches, 178 yards receiving, 3 touchdowns
DEVON BESS: 10 catches, 137 yards receiving, 1 touchdown
RYAN GRICE-MULLIN: 8 catches, 151 yards receiving, 1 touchdown
ADAM LEONARD: 12 solo tackles, 1 interception
DAN KELLY: Will hit the game winning field goal in OT…PRICELESS!
Okay, so maybe those are my personal crazy predictions and not those of Nostradamus. It will be interesting to see how good I am at foreseeing the future. Enjoy the game!
