There is a team in our Football League that holds a special place in our hearts. The owners are the nicest, most honest and real people you will ever meet. The other teams are nice, too but we formed a bond with the Diesels. They are like our family. Bee talks with their owner almost every day.
After the season was over, they asked if we would like to be in a post-season contest with them. We agreed, and enjoyed 3 more weeks of football. When we played them, the winner was going to go on to the championship. Bee and Rami decided before the game, that if we won, we would bring Rami on as a coach and let several of his guys wear our uniform and play with our team, and vice versa. Well, they won, and we went and played with them. Afterwards, they got invited to a bowl game championship. One day of football. Teams from all over the Country, and many different leagues. They called Bee and asked him if he would suit up with them. My guy, who can not refuse a game of football, agreed. So, off to Indianapolis we went..
We arrived, and C, as their adopted team mascot, donned her jersey, and helped get things underway.

After the game, Bee, C, and I started back in the direction of home. We stopped off at Motel 6 about 20 miles outside of Indianapolis and got a room, and grabbed some food at Denny's. Have to say, I was impressed with Motel 6. I will let them leave the light on for me in the future! :) Sunday, we got up early and headed home. Bee had Hockey to get ready for. All in all, it was a great weekend :) Next time, we will stop and visit Bee's brother and Sister-in-law as we passed through Columbus! :) We at least waived as we drove by ;)
