NaBloPoWriMo Servo: Day 29

What a day! It was the border battle between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Minnesota Gophers, and Tom Servo, who is a huge Badger fan, was freaking out. Not only was the infamous “axe” ownership on the line, but it was the Big Ten West championship and the winner of this game will head to Indianapolis to play Ohio State for the Big Ten Championship next week. So, big deal. And the teams were pretty evenly matched heading into the game, despite the fact that the axe has been in Madison for the past decade.

It's a pretty packed stadium, but mostly red and white.

These were our seats (!) just off the 40 yard line, four rows up from the Badger bench. Huge thanks to the Burces for the tickets. It was a thrill! And, Tom Servo is happy to report, after a very close (and fun) game, the Badgers won, 34-24.

The Gophers definitely made the Badgers work for it, and it was a really exciting game to watch. Go Badgers!

Fifth Quarter! This euphonium player made me laugh.
