Duel in the Desert

This past week, the University of Arizona Wildcats and the Arizona State Scumdevils, oops I mean Sundevils, had their football game against each other. I didn't go to the UofA or to ASU but I have always been a UofA Wildcat fan! My best friend, Laura, graduated from ASU so of course she is a big fan. I always give her and another friend of mine a hard time. I always call them Scumdevils and they respond with "We are going to fork those cats". Blah, blah, blah.
The game was scheduled for December 2nd so I decided it would be fun to start a friendly war. I was putting jokes up on Facebook about ASU and Laura and Dayna would respond. On Monday night I decided to tag Laura's car. I wrote "Go UofA" all over it. I should have waited till later in the night because she had to make an errand and saw it and was able to get it off. :( Tuesday I went out to her classroom and a friend of mine & I decorated her door with a whole bunch of UofA cutouts and streamers. I even colored her ladybug rock white and put a UofA "A" on it. It was a low blow but needed to be done. I didn't have anything planned for Wednesday night but I should have because when I woke up on Thursday morning, game day, I woke up to my whole front yard decorated like I was the biggest ASU fan. Laura and Dayna had tagged me. It was great! Finally I had gotten something out of them besides just trash talking on Facebook. Good job girls. Here are some pictures of my house.

What a site to wake up to. I was full of smiles! I could not wait for the game tonight! The girls and I headed out to Ricardo's since Laura had to work. Let's just say our bartender took extra good care of us. :)

{Getting started at Ricardo's}

We had to leave Ricardo's around 9 so we headed over to Nick's place to finish watching the game and that way Laura could meet us. The game was getting really intense. Back and forth, double overtime! EEK! I just know I was getting anxiety especially since there was a bet on the line.

So who won?????????????? UGH! UofA lost by one point! point! I couldn't believe it. The UofA kicker should lose his scholarship! Okay maybe not go that far but something needs to happen. Laura and Dayna were SUPER excited of course.

And then there was Tessa & I who were not so happy about losing the game.

We all had a great night but now Tessa & I have to go out in public wearing ASU gear. Totally not looking forward to it but that was the bet for the losing team. Stay tuned for pictures! Let's just hope next year UofA wins!
