The Stadium Experience:

Huskie Stadium – Dekalb, IL. Driving from Milwaukee to Dekalb made me feel link singing Kenny Roger’s The Gambler. You know, on a cold Tuesday eve on a road bound for nowhere… Dekalb is in the middle of HUH? Where are we? :P The snow that fell Friday night was still quite visible out here. Unfortunately, it was melting! Not sure if it was the slippery, slushy ground, the Tuesday evening, the team’s record, or something else that had an impact on turnout, but there weren’t many fans to be found. We wandered over to where band and cheer were putting on their pre-game pep rally. We were the only people outside of the student’s parents. It was great! Felt like we were being played for personally. Nabbing pictures was a breeze. :D There was also an ESPN booth close to the stadium that had some stuff going on. I believe with good weather this would have been extremely enjoyable. Sliding on the snow made it bummy. I ran into Victor here, and was able to get my mascot shot. The bad weather was a boon for me. The fans that I did run into seemed to whoop it up at gametime. Everyone was just trying to stay dry. :) NIU was fun. I think a Saturday in September or October would have been a better choice.
