BABE
I GOT YOU BABE
I GOT YOU BABE


WELCOME TO GRANDMAMA'S STORIES
MEET MY NEW *GAL* PALS!
Everything here has a *STORY*
Buffalo Babe is a Huge fan of the Thundering Herd
from
MARSHALL UNIVERSITY
My Alma Mater
WE ARE...MARSHALL 
is the cheer heard in the 2006 Movie by the same name.  
Starring Matthew McConaughey, the movie tells the true story of the rebuilding of the football team after a tragic plane crash in Nov. 1970 that killed the entire team, boosters, and crew on a rainy West Virginia night.  My husband was one of the REAL football players recruited to rebuild the team.  We got to be consultants on the movie, be in crowd scenes, and attend movie premier.
Picture on right above the shaker shows my husband (far rt)., 2 friends, and Matthew McConaughey

  28. We own the movie and I think I cried through much of it, knowing it was a true story about the team's loss and rebuilding. Oh I suppose that Hollywood took a few liberties as they always do. Interesting about your husband playing on the 71 team!

    I love how both of your projects turned out but of course would pick Bama Babe though I am a transplant and never cared much for college football till we moved to Alabama. Now, the Chicago Bears would be another story!!
