We also attended the West Point Association of Graduates' tailgate prior to the football game. It was fun to hang out with other fans, but not knowing anyone by name it also was a reminder that I'm an introvert by nature. As the crowd grew, the more uncomfortable I got. I know it would have been different had our group of known people been a little bigger, like a couple of my classmates. Yet, it was still fun, hearing the Superintendent fire up the crowd, the spirit band and cheerleaders perform, and just see the enthusiasm which still surrounds West Point even on the other side of the country from its location.
Anyway, I wanted to at least give a short post/recap of the fun weekend even though we witnessed Army get destroyed by San Diego State 42-7. Still, Amanda and I love it there and the 5 hour drive really is pretty easy to get to from our place in Avondale.
