This is the view from our seats as the arena started to fill up. Yes, we were at the top. Well, there was one row behind us.
"Hail, hail to old Purdue."
The starting lineups are introduced and the Boilers huddle up. These guys are ready.
This little group of West Virginia fans was just behind us. The two little guys on the end were very enthusiastic about their team, although their favorite thing to say seemed to be "Boiler down." I guess it's easier to yell than any cheer involving the words, "West Virginia University Mountaineers." What a mouthful. As the game went on, and they continued their chants and cheers (jeers), Jon asked if he could say "score-board" to which I answered, "no, they're eight years old." We are good sports here in the Big Ten. They were pretty quiet by the end of the game, and I do hope they enjoyed their visit to Mackey Arena.
Halftime entertainment included Purdue Pete surfing across the floor.
Dustin and Jennifer.
Darci and Andrew.
Kristen and Kyle, friends of David and Shylah.
