Snow game

This might go down in history as my favorite football game of all time. It helps that it was the last homegame of a winning season, and that it was not unbareably cold. But the best part by far was the snow that started coming in great waves midway through the fourth quarter. It came down so fast that it erased the yardlines in a matter of minutes, and made catching a ball darn near impossible, but we were winning by enough to make that irrelevant. The cheerleaders were making snow angels in the far end zone, and a festive spirit took over the crowd en masse. The snow was stunningly beautiful. It was a delightful way to end a home season.
