After the game, all of the parents that had come to watch set up our usual tailgate in our hotel, and everyone kind of sat around and lamented the end of a great season. It was very sad, but eventually the sadness turned slightly to reflection of what a great, fun season it had been.
The bus ride home this morning was nowhere near as happy as the one home from St. Louis last weekend, but it wasn't a funeral by any means. We all enjoyed each other's company one last time, laughing and joking and singing after the usual quiet period at the beginning. To finish the ride, we put in the movie "Just Go With It," which everyone enjoyed, even the coaches (it is a rare thing that they admit to liking a movie that we pick).
