Fall Football-East Coast-Clemson Tiger Tour!

For those of you who know my husband, you know that he is a HUGE Clemson fan (and graduate too). This fall our schedule and budget allowed us to attend three, back-to-back Clemson games.  And, if you follow college football, you know that Clemson is currently undefeated and dominating the ACC - a trend the Mudd household hopes continues.

We kicked off our fall tour on Saturday, October 1, in Blacksburg. It was unseasonably cold, but we had a great time!  We met up with our friend Arnie and we tailgated with a number of Phi Sigma Pi alumni from my college days.
I was supporting the Hokies (my first college football love), but it was so cold that I rocked the Nash Central hat too.
Arnie & Me. We are the coolest honorary Hokies I know ;)
The boys keeping warm and ready for kickoff.
Thanks to Rich for giving up his stellar seats under the pressbox awning.
We didn't have to worry about the wind or rain.

On Oct. 8, we headed south to Tiger Town! In Clemson we met up with a number of Tim's college friends and their wives/girlfriends, and we witnessed a Tiger homecoming win over Boston College.  Once again, we had a great time tailgating and catching up with old friends.
Both supporting the Tigers (and my sporting a new haircut).
Tailgate time!

Cornhole of course!

Natalie & Landon were there too 
(and I stole her pics from her fabulous blog)
Shawn & Whitney were there.
And Kimberly & Chad too (but I only have pics Kimberly took, like the one above).

We finished up our football tour on Oct. 15, in the infamous College Park, Maryland. As a graduate from UMD, I was stoked to be back on campus for this year's homecoming game. Contrary to the pictures, we were tailgating at Maryland; however, we were surrounded by many of Tim's Clemson friends. As usual, we had an awesome time tailgating and catching up with both Tiger and Terp friends.

The boys were proud of their Tiger pride in College Park.
This photo doesn't even begin to document the tailgate craziness and fun times that evolved and grew throughout the day.
I'm fairly certain that Candice & I have taken 15 pictures just like this one over the years.
Mark & Hannah came sporting the Terrapin red!
We were so excited to have the chance to hang with Tim & Tori two weekends in a row. They were in Clemson and in Maryland!

One last shot of us having a fabulous time and wrapping up our...
Fall Football, East Coast, Clemson Tiger Tour!

Stay tuned, if Clemson keeps it up we'll be headed to the ACC championship game and maybe a BCS bowl!?
