Texas Longhorns 24 - Ohio State 21

....the final score for the 2009 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl........

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an avid sports fan. I live for football....well, any ball game if I'm going to be honest. Wait, if I'm going to be honest then you know this is so not true!
I actually groan and moan and flop around if I happen to walk in and the tv is tuned into a football game or any other game where one person is throwing some sort of ball for any reason.

But I do have a daughter who is an avid sports fan. And loves football. And is loving her job in Scottsdale, AZ, as an Event Coordinator for The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl of the big college football bowl games. Although if you asked her yesterday if she loved it, she might have hesitated. She is totally exhausted right now after working very long hours for the last month leading up to Monday night's big game.

My sister's husband, Kim, and their son, Jack, traveled to Phoenix to attend the game as Jordan was able to get them tickets for a very low A perk of her job is a few tickets to the game and the pre-game party. Even though she had to "work it," she was able to sit and watch the majority of the game.

Kim is a Longhorn Alumni and although he convinced his son Jack to put up those 2 long horns....Jordan had to Gig'em. Uncle Kim treated Jordan to dinner and even slipped her a little green in a sweet thank you card. She said it was so fun having them there.

Jordan was also able to give her good friend, Brandon, tickets so he and his brother could attend. Every girl needs a good guy friend around and Brandon has certainly been that for her. He's very good with car repairs and taxiing Jordan to the airport when she flies home for visits.

Jordan gets a week off at the end of January and will be coming home for a Brandon get ready. Your taxi service will be needed once again. Thanks for all you do for her/us.

While it's hard to have her so far away......she has a fun job, a great apartment, and a nice circle of friends and we couldn't be more proud of her. Maybe one day, the Texans will need an event planner.....a college grad with a little experience....


  1. Gig 'em is right!!! Don't forget that Gary Kubiak was my babysitter when I was a kid...I'm just saying if Jo really wants to work in Houston...

    You had even me going for a second with that first line. I know very well that you don't know which ball goes with which sport. That's why Karen and I watched football at the Hilton in Omaha while y'all went line dancing.

    You have every right to be so proud of your beautiful girl, she really is a grown up-wow! And she's even "the first pancake"!

  2. You are a great mom for letting your daughter move to another state to chase her dreams. You must be very proud!
