BVU Upsets Bethal University!!!!

I know many people will wonder what football has to do with the blues. Baseball and blues certainly go hand in hand, especially in Kansas City, when the Kansas City A's, and the Negro League Monarchs played near 18th and Vine, then catching some blues and BBQ after a game was a no brainier. However, in KC, it has become also customary to tailgate, and what is better than blues and BBQ! Today was a great day for a football game, as you can tell from the above photo BVU has a nice little stadium right next to Strom Lake. The sky was blue, the grass was green, and even though it was warm, there was a nice cool breeze off the lake! PERFECT!

BVU has some new uniforms, and at first I didn't like them, but they grow on ya, especially when they win:-) Last year they were blue and white, this year they brought back the gold for the alumni so they were very happy

It seemed like most of the first half was played in BV's end of the field, but Bethel coundn't score, and BV drove the field at the end of the half to take the lead 7 to zip. The second half started good for Bethel with a field goal, but BV drove the field, and scored a TD. Bethel's next series they threw an interception which the Beavers returned for another touchdown. At this point Bethel with about 10 minutes left scored two quick touchdowns to come within 5 of BV. Bethel had a couple chances late, but the Beaver defense stiffened, and BV won. Here is a clip of the last play of the game. Sorry for the quality. I was planing on buying a new camera for football season and I haven't got around to it.

It was a great game and a great day. Now to eat some dinner, or supper as we call it in the midwest, and then listen to some internet blues radio! Ah, yes a perfect day:-)
