    They did us proud last year and it would be great to do it two years in a row. I have friends from Ohio, though, and if they win, I'll be happy for them. If we win, my grandson will be sporting a new Gator outfit.

    Love, Mikie

    My son is the fan but he goes all out with every game he watches on TV, he has to wear his gator hat, gator shoes, gator color shirt and pants.
    The sad part of it is his wife is seminole fan lol

    I just bought my grandson a gator bib and it has a gator on it and it says "little gator.." he is only 2 1/2 months old and already a gator fan...

    Last year, I got Andy a Gator onesie with a football on the seat. It was so cute. Congratulations on your little one. Wow! How does a Seminole and a Gator ever get together. It must have been hard deciding how to raise the children :)

    I have a daughter who is a Yankee fan and my SIL is a Mets fan. He's from NYC. No children there, though.

    Love, Mikie

    I'm so sorry about your daughter. Hope she is doing well. Andy's dad, my SIL, had an emergency appendectomy not long ago. They found a hernia, so he will have to have another surgery later on. Oy!

    Just after that, I had my gallbladder removed. Then, my other SIL, had to have his collar bone fracture surgically fixed. Now, Andy's Mom is having gb symptoms. It's like it never ends.

    I really don't choose one team here over the other but if either of them does well, I'm proud.

    Again, my prayers are with your daughter.

    Love, Mikie

    Sorry I can not share your joy on the Gators...I am a Seminole ( graduated from Florida State Univ. about a 1,000 years ago!)

    Just kidding :) Congrats!

    Since I am a transplant here, I really haven't chosen one team over the other. If it had been the Seminoles, I would have been just as proud. I do know that Floridians who have grown up here are one or the other and there is a major rivalry. I can just sit back and enjoy it when anything positive in FL happens. For so long, it seems like our major claim to fame was hanging chads! Well, that and the ability to act all high and mighty in the winter when everyone else is shoveling snow and we are lounging poolside.

    Love, Mikie
