Colorado vs. Kansas State -- CU Herd goes to the Little Apple

This was a great trip. Colleen and I embarked on our trip to Kansas on Friday the 23rd at 7:00am from the Koenig Alumni Building at University and Broadway. We took a cab from Will Ville to the Alumni Center for about $7.00. That is a really cheap taxi ride!
In a matter of 5 minutes, the scenary went from flat snowless plains,
to tons of snow on the ground!

Welcome to Kansas! Right as we entered Kansas,
we went through a truck scale.

We made it to Aggie-Ville (their version of Pearl Street),
where we had dinner at Pizza Hut and applauded by Kansas State fans
for beating U of Kansas the previous weekend.

We crashed the Kansas State Homecoming parade by
singing our fight song and cheering for CU!
This is a picture of their band playing in the parade.

Here we are on our way to Pizza Hut. Kansas State had some
nice paper-mache creations of Ralphie.

After dinner, the 21+ crowd headed for the bars.
(Drinking is the only thing to do in Kansas apparently). Colleen and I headed for
Kansas State to check out the University and goof around. Below are some pictures.

Here is a picture of Ralphie getting a nice ride in a cart.
Supposedly Kansas State's Homecoming Theme was "The Frontier".

Colleen and I spent some time at the "Library". LOL.

Here is a picture of Colleen lying in an egg.
It was some sort of  modern art on the Kansas State Campus.

At 9:30pm, we boarded up the bus and headed to Junction City
to stay at our hotel, the DaysInn. This bus-ride was about 30 minutes away.
We spent the whole ride singing every type of song imaginable. A bus favorite
was the good ol' white person theme song. LOL. Don't Stop Believing by Journey.

When we got to the hotel, we got our room and hang out at the pool.
We played some pool with some Seniors. We each won once.

The next morning we woke up at 6:45am and headed to Kansas State for the game!

Gameday!  Here is an alum cookin' up some burgers and hot dogs.
There was a ton of food! and sooo good!

Here is me and Colleen at the tailgate!
It was put on by the CU Herd and Alumni Association.
We met a bunch of really cool alums and fans.

Here is the game ticket! Rough game. We lost 6-20.

And of course a Pano shot of Kansas State.

After the game, we headed back to Aggie-Ville, and later left at 8:00pm.
We got back to the Alumni Building at 3:30am. Colleen and I then caught a cab home.


  1. Looks like a great time! I'm glad you are enjoying college so much. :-)
