Besides a very important concert, there was this VERY important game that we were all anticipating on Saturday. It was the final-four, and Borden was hoping to win semi-state and head to THE final game in Indianapolis.
My girlies and I loaded up with our own little caravan in hopes of witnessing a big win. And I in typical form am the one loaded down with junk on every limb. Oh, and seriously what great friends do I have?? I KNOW.
And 3 out of our combined brood came along to cheer.
Let's talk about the town of Borden, Indiana for a minute.
It has a population of 817
And number of tickets they sold for the game? 1600.
There were around 7000 people in that gym, and we heard it was the biggest tourney crown at that sight ever.
It's safe to say that this small town takes their ball very serious. Or maybe it's just safe to say that Indiana takes its ball very serious.
Just about our entire family was at the game, and I sat right behind momma.
Oh, and these are just two of the greatest girls ever. That's all.
And finally it was almost time....
I had big intentions of taking pics of the game, but nope. Nerves have a funny way of ruining all your plans.
But I have to talk about these two sweet boys! I have never seen anything CUTER than how much they got into the game!
Good thing for her she found someone to giver her sympathy.
Listen, I couldn't be handing out sympathy, I had screaming to do.
And more importantly, I needed to say "SHOOT" and then fluff my hair.
I didn't even realize I was doing that until Tracey tweeted it! But thank you Katherine for your hair fluff support!
But you guys, this game.
It, like all of their games, was a nail-biter to the end.
But they did it! I couldn't watch the end, I just looked up at Jami and Tracey and when I saw them screaming in excitement I knew they had won it. I couldn't believe it, and Jo was the first person I had to hug.
I didn't even bother to try and get down there for a while, it was just so crazy!
And then finally....
It was just so good to see him and have a chance to hug him! He was disgustingly sweaty, but I didn't mind.
All of us are just so excited for him.
And it's this boy right here? Well, he has been his brothers biggest cheerleader. SERIOUSLY, IMA SOB NOW.
They have won sectional.
They have won regionals.
They have won semi-state.
Now all that's left is the big game. THE ONE. They are State bound!
And when I think about Borden, I can't help but think about the movie Hoosiers. Small-town school hitting the big-time. Our very own Hoosiers.
Take a couple minutes and watch this clip....
