We made the trip to West Lafayette on Saturday for an afternoon game between our Boilers and Virginia Tech. Afternoon games are so nice, since you don't have to leave home at zero dark thirty, and you can enjoy a leisurely tailgate before kickoff. Unfortunately, afternoon games are reserved for teams playing 'big games', which means our team will likely kick at noon from here on out. :(
I didn't take many photos, but Jim started the day by posting our flags on his Facebook page. If you're in or around the R lot before a game, look for the black Purdue train over a Saints flag, and come say hello. We'll be glad to share a burger and a beverage!
Jim found the next group of photos on his phone, with no clue how they got there.
Adam. Not smiling.
The kids in attendance posed for a Boiler Up! photo.

At halftime, they honored the 2001 Rose Bowl team, which included many of our favorite Boilermakers. My quarterback couldn't make it to the game, but he had a special message for the crowd, and shared some of his favorite memories from that unforgettable season. Thanks, Drew!
We are fans, though, so through thick or thin, win or lose, we will remain 'ever grateful, ever true.'
And we'll look cute, too! Boiler Up!
