Every Fall JC and I try to make it to an Illinois Football game, so when we had the chance to head to Memorial Stadium on Saturday we couldn't pass it up.
JC is a huge Illinois fan. Much of his "normal" wardrobe is full of orange and blue. His love for Illinois sports was probably one of the only negative marks against him my Dad could come up with. My family is from the Terre Haute, Indiana area, so members of my family are naturally big Indiana University fans. I have tried to remain true to IU and my upbringing through the seven years JC and I have been together; however living in Central Illinois for eight years has rubbed off on me and I’m starting to cave a little, for the sake of our marriage :) This Saturday I succumbed to the Illinois fever and wore an Illini orange sweater to the football game.

Besides a pretty awful football game, I was really impressed with the Illinois band. The half time performance was a "Superhero" theme. Although the theatrics of the performance were a little corny, the formations the band members created were really impressive.
