We're going to another NIU football game in DeKalb in some really crummy weather this time. Last Saturday we had perfect football weather and enjoyed viewing the foliage as the trees were just starting the Big Color Blast. It's all overcast and drizzly today, so that will definitely take away from the enjoyment of seeing the trees.
As the holders of a scholarship to Northern for education students while student teaching, we are invited once a year to the President's Reception at the Barsema Alumni Center and that comes with parking there, food and drinks and a chance to meet and greet President Doug Baker.
Then, we have prime seats at the game right by midfield and with regular seats. But, watching football outside in the cold and the rain is not one of my favorite things to do. We'll have to see.
