Bama Boy - Joie de Vivre

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.
Emily Dickinson


How fun is that? Youngest son found in the 100,000 spectators at the Alabama/Penn State game. Recognize him? He's the one showing off that orthodontia while he gives you the #1 sign.

What a relief to know Ian's having a great time. We'll find out how much fun when mid-term grades come out in October.

Seriously, though, how fun was that! All 8 seconds of it. Such joy I observe in his smile. Such joy in my heart as I watch on the other side of the screen. Good way to bring him home for a moment.

Roll Tide!

  3. It is so hard letting go isn't it? Good to see he is enjoying himself though.

  4. If he keeps appearing on telly like that, at least you can keep an eye on him.

  5. Well, I can just imagine how you felt. What fun!
    But there was another haw-dropping side to this for me - the huge divide between US and Canadian college sports. Were there really supposed to be 5 zeroes to the right of that number 1? We wouldn't even be able to summon that number to a pro game.

  6. How exciting! And to be able to spot him like that! Super cool!

  7. "...We'll find out how much..." Plain and simple, he is and will have fun and he will work for his grades. HE'LL LEARN HOW TO HAVE BOTH.

  8. Hey, I thought everyone was supposed to get 15 minutes of fame, so what's with this 8 second bit?

    I know another blogger in Austin--Sonia at Dark Raven. Perhaps, you too know her.

  12. Do you know how many times I've looked through various crowds over the years to catch a glimpse of my kid? And you saw yours! That is awesome!

    If that was Saturday's Alabama game, we were watching it, too. :)

    I SAW YOUR KID! WOOT!

  14. How fun, to see your own amongst 100,000! It appears he's very happy, which is just what we want our boys to be. Well, that and independent. ;)

  15. Great teeth on that kid! I'm glad he's enjoying himself... but not too much that he doesn't study!

  16. What a great gift of a few seconds.

    Glad to hear that things are going well in Crimson Tide land.

    I wonder just how many times you have viewed it!

  19. Too fun! Roll Tide! I'll have to send my my red velvet sheet cake recipe. When the boy I mentioned announced he was going to Alabama, D2 made him this cake and we had a all red meal. Red meat, red potatoes, red veggies and the cake. We did a cream cheese icing and wrote Roll Tide in red.

    We watched some of this game in a bar in Grand Lake, but obviously missed the clip of Ian. Too Cool! He looks like he is having fun. You need that in those first terrifying months of school when someone is always quizzing you to see how much you were paying attention during class or what you could cram in that brain of yours to regurgitate on your midterm. Hope he has some fun!

  21. He's adorable. Someone must have known that you needed a little glimpse of your darling son.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh how fun is that! What a cutie. I once had a similar glimpse of my son marching in the Remembrance Day parade at our nation's capitol. What a kick, eh? I'm glad you got to see your boy. :)

  23. That is so fun! I would love to catch a glimpse of one of mine lke that.

  24. Was he in the crowd of almost 102,000 people last night when his school whooped the butts of my alma mater???

    ReplyDelete
  25. How cool is that! Your son on national TV (I presume national TV, given the opponents)! A happy, settled solid devotee of the Crimson Tide! Yippee!

  26. Just stopping by again to say "hi!" ~Janine XO

  27. I felt joy, too, as I watched...and he's not even my son!
    Actually, watched it a couple times.
    Glad you have the video.
    Hope those grades make you smile. :)
