In my excitement over the Tigers win, I didn't mention the trip the kids and I took to the Parsons Field in Brookline on Saturday to see the University of Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens take on my alma mater, the Northeastern University Huskies. It was the kids first college football game.

The game itself was very exciting, as Northeastern hit a field goal with time running out to beat Delaware 27-24. Parsons Field is a little stadium (around 7,000 seats) tucked into a Brookline neighborhood. It's basically a glorified high school stadium, with aluminum bleachers and a small press box. Concessions are sold from a tent in one of the end zones. There are a couple of kids games behind the home side of the field, which we took advantage of at halftime. It certainly has a very homey, intimate feel to watching the game and the three of us had a really good time.
