1st Homecoming and 1st....

STREAKERS! Not one streaker, but 6 of them bad boys.
It all started when last year, when the weather was nice, I didn't go to homecoming {have never been to our high school's football games.} And I missed the streaker that was all the talk of town.
So, this year another very warm evening and I know a few of the kids on the team {Jerry was suppose to be starting quarterback} and I thought I ought to go plus I had hopes of seeing a streaker...tee hee.
Kris and I joined Missy and her DD and friends {mostly juniors} who kept us updated on the streaking agenda.
It was fun to be a part of homecoming: the band, the people, the hoopla but the game was not good at all. First quarter the score was 0-21. Ouch and it wasn't pretty.
Half time - no streakers.
Update from the girls in the know was that it was going to be after 3rd quarter being the police presence was high to ward off streakers during half time. Getting a bit bored with the bad beat after half I wasn't too tuned in to the game but sure enough with about 3 minutes left on the clock during 3rd quarter there they were....
Oh, the excitement they created. The crowd went wild! At first I think there were 4, with 2 stragglers behind them and only one police officer chasing him that dropped his walkie talkie from the get go. Isn't this hilarious? They jumped about 2-3 fences. The last fellow in the bottom photo I know by sight - too funny. Rumor has it that 2 out of 6 were caught.
I found these photos on MySpace.
And for the record, the game started out in the low 80's and was still 73 when it was over - that's awesome weather for football in MN. Many homecomings mitten, jackets, blankets aren't enough to keep the cold out. Oh, and I almost forgot, end score was 0-39 - ugh!
So, I am one step closer to having completed my life.

Freakin' hilarious! Why can't the po-po just let 'em streak. Pretend to chase 'em and be done with it. I'd hate to be the slowest guy! HAHAHAHAH
