When you live in mountain country you have to contend with a lot. But it is worth it for the scenery, the snow and the GRIZ! Tho they can be unpredictable; you can't help but love them, you want to watch them, and you just can't help but run right up to them and give them a high five and a slap on the arm. Yes, I am an avid GRIZ friend and supporter. But before you worry about me being killed or torn limb from limb, I don't mean this kind...

I mean this kind...

Aren't they gorgeous? My boys. The guys that put the meaning in my Fall Saturdays. 6 home games a year, I don my maroon and silver, grab my snacks, car flag and my hubby and head to Washington-Grizzly Stadium. From the walk across campus to watching the team enter thru the tunnel, it is an afternoon of excitement and immense fun. I get a huge feeling of pride when we play well and if we win (which is often) we get the added pleasure of having the team come right up to the stands and sing our fight song. And as those silver helmets bob up and down to the beat of "Up with Montana Boys!", I am spent, and hoarse and feeling oh so good. Go Griz!
Always, Kit
