We had heard it was going to be in the 40's by the end of the game with a possibility of rain, so we came prepared. I had a t-shirt, a sweater, a coat and a jacket. I was starting to think I was probably over prepared. Well nothing can prepare you for 40 mph winds, with gusts as much as 55... the entire game!It took around 200 people to keep this flag from blowing away
It was freezing! The wind chill temperature was in the 20's. At times I felt like I was going to be blown over. There was constantly things blowing around the field, they had to take down the nets behind the goal posts as they were getting twisted around it.... but well it was probably a lot colder on the other side of the stadium as the Cougars ate the Beavers for breakfast!
Some shots of the players after the game
It was so fun being there with all of the fans, all freezing together but cheering on our Cougars. We joined the crowd on the field after the game to celebrate the victory then made it back to the truck. We were frozen to the bone but on a high from the game. Until we got back to our condo, then we crashed. I literally felt like I could fall asleep standing up. I do not remember being that cold and that physically exhausted ever in my life. But it was worth it!
