Earlier this fall, ESPN GameDay came to town. I really didn't know much about GameDay but any chance to spend time in our lovely downtown and also bring our Bison pride sounds like a darn good Saturday morning for this family. So, we loaded up and headed in to town. Geez, it sounds like we came on a chuck wagon with that last sentence. Giddy up!
Downtown Fargo has such a neat feel. It is an awesome place to take a newcomer. But when a giant like ESPN comes to town, things need to be turned up a notch. You know? And there is a specific group of people who know how to bring enthusiasm and excitement enough to fill large city blocks with spirit. And that would be your NDSU Bison Fans! They showed up alright.
They screamed, they cheered, they made sure ESPN knew that there is nothing else like a Bison fan.
There were police lines.
Camera men with some serious equipment. This guy came out with a baby buffalo and everyone cheered. I had no clue who he was. Derrick informed me later. We had a fantastic day.
After the live filming of Game Day was over, we had our first experience at the rooftop of Rhombus Guys Pizza. It was fantastic!!!!
After we were stuffed with pizza, we decided to hit up a local parade because our kids need to eat more candy.
It was a perfect day. So colorful and lively.
And this looks like a great photo for this years family Christmas card. Because who doesn't want a giant grocery cart as the backdrop for this years festive cheer? Annnnd...... that would be me raising my hand in response to my own previous question. So, let's just chalk this day up to super awesome and save the Christmas card photos for another day! :)
The March is on!
