Yesterday we went to our first Cornell football game. Even though the the Big Red lost (to Yale) we had fun sitting in the stands and cheering for them!
Jonathan decided to take this opportunity to begin teaching Lincoln about football.
Someone sitting on the bench in front of us offered Lincoln his thunder stix. Lincoln happily accepted them.
Watching Cornell football was a little like watching a high school game. Cornell (like all Ivy schools) does not award athletic scholarships. As a result, Cornell does not attract a lot of 5-star football talent and their roster is filled with players who – except for one guy, who got hurt – are not particularly big, strong, fast, quick or athletic. But since we went to a high school with a crappy football team (sorry Kristopher and Benj) it was still fun to watch.
