Robinson Advances to State Playoff

Robinson has made it to the State playoff. They beat Ingleside 62-21 Friday night. Greg was not able to get off work for us to go so I picked up chinese food and we sat in the warmth and comfort of our own home and listened to it on the radio. There was sleet and a few snow flurries before and during the game even though New Braunfels is farther south. Morgan has been a "sort of" mascot during the playoff games. The band directors asked her if she would be interested in doing it and they rounded up a costume from several years ago, cape and "beanie" included. She also paints her face blue and white, the school colors. She has been called "rocket woman" (we are the Robinson Rockets) but maybe "rocket person" is more politically correct. She runs out on the field at the end of the halftime show and then stays down there through the end of the game. She is having a blast (no pun intended) doing it!! I will try to snag a picture to put on the blog. We play a team from Texarkana on Saturday, 6 PM, at the SMU stadium in Dallas. The stadium holds 32,000. I have no doubt that the Robinson side will be full!! This is sooooo exciting!!
