It is my dad's particular birthday wish that Clemson University beat University of South Carolina in the football game tonight. For those of you not from South Carolina, there is a HUGE rivalry between the Clemson Tigers and the Carolina Gamecocks. Families tend to be for one side or the other; my family falls squarely on the Clemson side. (Dad graduated from Clemson in 1972. We grew up with tiger-themed decor, and as a child, I even painted my dollhouse orange with purple shutters).
My mom decided to throw a Football-Birthday party. She decorated in orange, and made a bunch of food. We've been sitting around the television set since 7pm, and since I'm not the biggest football fan, I decided to document everything via the blog. It's always fun to look back and see what you were doing on a particular day-- don't ya think?

I would like to say that Dad is going to get his birthday wish. Alas, things are not going too swell :( We've got one quarter left, and Clemson is far, far behind. Still, it's a memorable day, and my mom's party was a great idea.
Happy Birthday, Dad!!! We love you!
