Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 232: Go Badgers!!!

From opposite sides of the country, Mr. E and I watched the UW-Madison Badgers football game versus Nebraska yesterday and texted comments to each other.  The first quarter did not begin well... several miscues by our Badgers and dropped balls and turnovers.  Yikes!  But then Melvin Gordon kicked it into high gear and finished the game with a new NCAA rushing record.  Amazing!!! 

A couple of other firsts from the game included the coldest temperature at kick-off since the 1960s (26 degrees) and the first snowfall of the year:

Personally, I'm convinced that the turnaround in the game was a direct result of my putting on my Bucky Badger earrings...
