A beautiful day in the neighborhood

My in-laws are in town this weekend and yesterday we went to the UW Homecoming Game vs. Indiana.  As a medical school employee, I get first dibs on any tickets from the Homecoming block that aren't purchased by members of the Medical Alumni Association, so I sprinted over to the health sciences building last Friday as soon as they went on sale and picked up four.  Unlike last year, our fabulous spot in the south end zone was packed.

Unlike another team near and dear to my heart, the Badgers are having a great season.  We enjoyed the 50 degree fall weather and walked down to the stadium and joined our friends dressed in red 2.5 hours of the Badgers laying the smack down on Indiana.

Fun was had by all.

We left at the beginning of the fourth quarter when the Badgers were safely ahead by 47 points and stopped for some fortification at Babcock Hall.  New favorite flavor: Mad Grad Medley (it's the UW version of Cherry Garcia).

On the agenda for today is a trip out to the Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe, WI.  It's the Midwest's oldest  brewery and they also make soda.

Enjoy your Sunday and Good Luck to Kerri who is running the Des Moines Marathon today!
