Friday Night Lights

For the last several months, our Friday nights have been spent at Harder Stadium at UCSB rooting for the women's soccer team!  There is an indescribale sense of excitement as the game begins to start.  The sun starts to set in the sky and the fog layer begins to roll in.  Day becomes night right before our eyes.  The girls proudly sport their gold and blue G-Kids shirts and are quite possibly the loudest cheering fans in the stadium.  Even the baby has learned to cheer with her very enthusiastic "GA-GA-GA!!"   

Needless to say, they think they own the stadium.  But does that really surprise you about the Sedehi Sisters?
The stadium staff knows us, and everyone is kind enough to let me know when the baby is eating things off the ground, or when one of the girls has disappeared and is nowhere to be seen. 
The soccer girls swoon over them, and their favorite part of the night is when they actually get to go on the field at the end of the game.
The girls have quickly learned the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.  They keep a close eye on the score board for any action.  After tying the game against Fresno State, and watching one of Emma's favorite players get tossed, Emma adamantly said, "I'm gonna RIP those bulldogs!"  Not quite from the mouth of babes, more like from the mouth of the coaches' daughter!!  They love their daddy and although they might not have the words to say it, the are very proud of him!    
Soccer season is coming to an end and I have to admit that I am a little sad!  I know the girls will look back on these Friday nights with fond memories.  And although it's a production to get ourselves situated in the stands and I usually don't get to watch a minute of the game, these will be special memories for me too!
