Code Red

One of the worst things that has ever happened to me turned into one of the greatest days and one of the best games I've ever been to.
I never do this until Saturday - but last night I decided to pull out our tickets for today. I always keep them in my top desk drawer. No tickets. I tore my desk apart and had a major panic attack when I realized I had cleaned out my desk a couple of weeks ago and they must have got stuck in something that got thrown out. I ran into where Scott was and told him we had an emergency situation. The biggest game of the year - actually the biggest game in Razorback history besides the '69 shootout was the next day - and I had thrown out our tickets. I was certain I would be signing divorce papers soon.
I called my good friend Hillary and when she answered all I could say was "CODE RED. We have an emergency." God really does care about the details of our lives because Hillary's dad just happened to have 2 extra tickets that he was on the verge of giving away. She called him and we secured them. And since we knew no one would be in our actual seats - we used them to get in and still got to sit with Hillary in our season ticket seats.
I would have never forgiven myself if we had missed this game. It was awesome! DMAC is a machine. No question he is on the heisman watch now. And AR is finally getting respect. And with most of the teams ahead of us losing today............I'm telling you ......we are on the road to Arizona. You may laugh now - but call me when I'm in Glendale in January. :-)
Go hogs and thank goodness for friends who can save me in a terrible situation. (and I'm no longer in charge of our tickets ever again).

That reminds me of the time my little sister moved into my room the DAY I went to college, and "cleaned" it - including my two U2 tickets for 4 weeks later.

I found two more, but man was I mad.......

Glad you got to go!
