How bout dem Citadel Bulldogs?!

The Citadel basketball team this year is like something out of a dream. We were pretty loyal fans last year (resulting mainly from getting free tickets to the games), and we suffered through their amazingly horrible season of conference games ending up with only 1 win and 19 losses. We still had hopes, though, of a better team this year, and now we are seeing our hopes realized. Their season this year is so far 14 wins and 4 losses in the conference (in which they are now number 2). And we are on an 11-game winning streak. Pretty amazing since that has not happened in 75 years of the history of the school. Up until last night we had not been to any games this season because of a couple reasons (namely, a newborn and the result of a newborn--no sleep), but we finally decided we just had to make it to the last 2 home games. Last night they played Furman, and it was a great game! They were very close during the whole first half, but then Citadel dominated in the second half, giving us a big win of 75-54. We dressed the kids up in their Citadel shirts and brought them along, and Anna Ruth ended up really getting into the whole cheering and taunting thing. She was even yelling "airball, airball" with the cadets after one Furman guy airballed a 3-point shot. Fun stuff. Check out the cute pics.
