2009 ended with a bang for us and thousands of Vandal fans. Our team, under the leadership of Robb Akey, made to and won the Humanitarian Bowl. Pete and I went with a couple of friends. In spite of the horrid blue turf we had fun! The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed a great game. The Vandals nearly gave us a coronary when they were behind with 30 seconds left in the game. We were leaving and then the Vandals pulled out the best drive in the whole game and capped it off with a two point conversion to win it! It was incredible being there with all our fellow Vandals. We stayed for the trophy ceremony and Pete nearly got run over by the security team bringing coach Akey for the trophy ceremony. He says it was cool especially since Akey asked if he was okay. I managed not to freeze too bad. I am glad that we went as I am sure we would have regretted staying home.
