UofC Kickoff 2012

Today was the home opener for the UCalgary Dinos men’s football team. They slaughtered the UofA Golden Bears1 . But, lots of campus pride on display. We got to the stadium too late – all of the Kickoff 2012 t-shirts were gone already. The Boy™ was disappointed, but he got over it quickly enough…

  1. 65-6. seriously. I lost track of the stats, but it was something like 600 yards for Dinos, and 50 for Bears. I know. Wow. []

UofC Kickoff 2009

Today was the annual Kickoff event – the home opener for the U of C Dinos football team, combined with a party welcoming students to campus for another year. This year, the whole family went to the game, and we had a blast. Also, this year was different because it was the first time in a long, long time that I was able to score the free tickets offered to students…

We had to leave at half time, because it was just too much sun for The Boy™ to endure, but the first half of the game was a great one. When we left, the Dinos were ahead 10-8 over the Golden Bears. Sounds like the second half was exciting, too, with the Dinos holding onto the slim lead to win the game. Whew.

UCalgary Dinos vs. UAlberta Golden Bears Kickoff ’08

The Boy™ and I went to the Kickoff ’08 game, and had a total blast. Lots of fun, and the Dinos won (but we missed the action of the fourth quarter – had to leave a little early with a worn out 5 year old 🙂 )
