It sometimes pays to know to right people…

Since I’m no longer a student & I usually work Saturday afternoons I haven’t made it to a Griz football game all season. Sad, I know, but I can usually at least catch parts of them on the radio at work.

So once again the Griz found themselves in the playoffs (quarter finals to be exact) and I found myself w/ a ticket & the day off. I stared the game in the student section with my room mate Kyle & friends.
Kyle is a writer for & needed to be on the sidelines for the second half of the game. After stopping by his office at halftime to snag his press pass, I was given one as well to accompany him onto the field!! (Thanks again!) Kyle was an awesome tour guide & instead of just walking onto the field he brought me onto it via the tunnel that the players run down & onto the field at the start of the games. Kyle also showed me around the press box & took me onto its roof where cameras broadcast the game to all over the country.

The Griz shut out SF Austin 51-0 and advanced to the semi-finals!
