Tyler's First Mizzou Basketball Game

We took Tyler to his first Mizzou basketball game on Monday against K-State.  It was a 4:30 game so we thought he would be able to stay awake and he sure did (this kid usually goes to bed between 7:30 and 8).  Tyler was really into it, clapping when we scored and even putting his arms up for three pointers.  He is so smart...and fed off the crowd really well.  My favorite part was watching his eyes light up when the band played the fight song.  I have been singing it to him since he was born and it is one of his favorites.  He will even let out an occasional "zooo-rah...ahhhhh"  The ahhhh is in a higher pitch and meant to mimic the Tigers part of "Mizzou-rah Tigers!"  Come on, I know you guys are saying it in your head. 

He was a little annoyed in this photo that there was a break in the action. 

After the game, we celebrated the Tiger victory with dinner at Shakespeare's Pizza with grandma and grandpa, who also went to the game.  I love their wheat crust pizza!  Amazing! 

We hope Tyler gets to see many more MU victories in the future.
