It's been a long day, but definitely an exciting one!
My day started really early, submitted my IE 468 homework and went straight to work at 1pm to 6pm. Now? Kinda beat..but posting my entry..it's a 'must-do' for today. So yea..here goes...
Interesting conversation between Hubby and I while walking from EE East Building to the HUB (directly translated to English):
Me : Hm..is that a football player? He's tall and he's an African American.Maybe?
Hubby: Not all big African American are football player, honey.
Me : Why haven't we ever bumped into any football players on campus? Why? Urgh..Before the end of the semester, I definitely will track them down, take pictures with them and have them sign on my Penn State Sweater, seriously!
(I have my Bill Cowher's face on..hihi..)
Hubby: Hey, that's a football player.
Me : Owh my God! You're kidding!
Hubby: Nope, i'm not!
(me looking really closely)
Me : Owh my God! (jumping around in excitement)
Hubby: Go get his autograph.
Me : O wait..I HAVE A CAMERA IN MY BOOKBAG!
Hubby and I was debating on who should approach him 1st & ask if he wants to take a picture with us.
After a lil' "you-go, no! you-go scene", I got to take a picture with the Penn State cornerback , Alan Zemaitis. God knows how excited I was! I don't even know how to describe this moment in words. We shook hands, Hubby and I congratulated him and let him know how awesome he was last Saturday.
That's the picture! Me & Alan Zemaitis. Hehe..yes, I know..I am LITTLE!
So, after that exciting moment, we (Hubby and I..of course w/o AZ..duh!) went to get my salad at Sbarro..still excited..and gosh, I can't even stop smiling to myself!
Moving out of Sbarro..talking and smiling, I got even more excited when I saw three big guys at the entrance of Barney's. OWH MY GOD! That's like the most memorable moment. I went to them, without thinking any longer..and said to them..
(With my cutie, sweetie-ish voice) " EXCUSE ME SIR, CAN I TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOU??"
and he said," Sure, sweetie..!" Aaaaa!!! Am I dreaming or what? (I need some help, you think?).
YOU KIDDING ME? It's our most beloved Penn State quarterback, Michael Robinson (rightmost), accompanied by Matthew Rice, the defensive line (leftmost) and AZ (middle..yeaa haa!). Is this a miracle or what? So, of course, I got to shake their hands, congratulated them..and most importantly, TOOK A PICTURE WITH THEM. So yea..call me a freak..call me a psycho..but I got what I dreamed for(since I started to become a die-hard football fan..ehem ehem). I've always wanted to take some pictures with the stars of Penn State football team..and I did.
Owh, by the way, Penn State won our last game of the season, against Michigan State, the Spartans with the score 31-22. It wasn't the best game, but it was good enough to earn the BIG TEN CHAMPION TITLE 2005. ssswwweeeetttt...!
Although I could not make it to East Lansing, I got to go to Rec Hall, for the welcoming event. Some pictures from there: (they're not too clear, but you can see how it is).
Try to look for the big ten trophy, held up by M Rob among the crowd. C'mon..you can see that..!
The players' arrival..hehe, can't really see which is which, but they are with the tags on their hats. hehe..
Bottom line, I LOVE TODAY! This day is definitely gonna be stored in my personal Penn State memory. WE ARE...PENN STATE!
Word of the day: Excited, exciting, excitement and any word with the root word 'excite' in it.
