Gamecock Thursday

Well, it's that time of the year again when my mom goes crazy! (I think she already is a little crazy, but that's another story). She loves South Carolina Gamecock Football and goes to all of the games. South Carolina is on national television tonight (Thursday) at 8:00 pm EST. Mom says she is going to find a way to get into the stadium, even if she has to take a wheelchair (remember, she is supposed to be off of her foot!).

Mom tried to get me to wear a shirt or hat, like Daisy does, but I put my paw down and said "No way!" I did agree to pose in front of the official Gamecock Block C.

Mom is another story! She loves to dress up for the game. This is a picture from last year when ESPN's College Game Day came to South Carolina.

I guess this means that Mom will be home really late Thursday night!

The South Carolina Gamecocks open their 115th season of intercollegiate football, dating back to 1892, and the 2008 season at home against the NC State Wolfpack on Thursday, Aug. 28 in front of an ESPN national-television audience. This is the 102nd-consecutive year in which South Carolina has competed on the gridiron. The University did not field a team in either 1893 or 1906. Carolina owns an all-time record of 521-523-44. This is the third time in the last four years that the Gamecocks have opened their season on ESPN.

Dearest sweet Praline! How wonderful to have a passion for sport like your mommy does. We love soccer at the cozy cottage.
Please give your mommy extra sandpaper kisses from me and that I hope her foot ouchie gets all better real soon. Never walk barefoot in the outside...too many dangers there!

Gamecock? Sounds like chick-hen! In fact that football does look a bit like a chick-hen.

Our Grampy loves football, but doesn't watch too much collegiate - mostly just the NE Patriots.

Praline, we hope your Mom can make the game, but she does need to be really careful with her hurt footie, so maybe a wheelchair or crutches would be a good idea. We don't think we'd like to dress up either ... that is why we all love Daisy so much, she loves it and is a kitty fashion icon! We hope the Gamecocks win, and please tell your Mom to be easy on that footie!
Purrs and headbutts,

I hope your Mom doesn't jump up and down on that hurt foot during the game. Dad'll probably be watching it on TV since everyone will want to talk about it tomorrow.

I hope you won't be alone too long while your mom is at the game!

Praline - We don't watch too much footballs here at our house. Crazy Lady went very briefly to UGA, but doesn't care too much about their games. But, she spent most of her college years and she and D.C. both graduated from GA State and they're supposed to get their first footballs team next fall. Maybe they'll watch more of it then! Hope your team wins the footballs!!

Let me get this straight...your mom is watching chickens play football?

Lorianna said...

Oh Praline, your poor Mommy! Gee I don't get online for a day and I have to play catch up! That cut sounds awful! I hope those antibiotics work fast.
Yes, your Mom should have some fun watching her team. :) I'm sure you will get lots of attention when she gets home. After she comes home and feeds you your favorite food you must sit on her and make her rest Praline! :)
I hope all is well otherwise. I will keep you both in my thoughts and light a votive in my cute little kitty candle holder for Mom. Are you still being fussy with your food Praline? I hope not!
Sending Gentle Hugs to You all!
Lorianna and Miss Billie (who is very cranky because Momma cut out a stubborn knot) :)
