Dave just arrived home to let me know that the football team turned the game around and ended up winning 32-30! Mind you, all those points came during the last half of the third quarter and the fourth quarter. So, the first Monte Vista Bowl (both schools are on Monte Vista Avenue) ended with Turlock Christian winning the coveted wagon wheel that has been dedicated as the "trophy" that the winning school will keep until the next year's match-up. The winning team, score, and date will be inscribed on the plaque attached to the wagon wheel to commemorate the winners. A fun and friendly rivalry, indeed.
A highlight (or rather I would say a "low" light) of the evening was the "Bovine Bingo" that took place beginning at the half-time. People were able to purchase plots in a grid that had been chalked on the ground, and then a cow was walked back and forth, back and forth, on the grid, and you guessed it.......whatever plot the above-mentioned bovine pooped in, that person was the winner of two luxury box tickets for the 49er's game against the Vikings. Wow, I really feel like I live in a rural area when I get to watch something like that for entertainment! :-)
