It’s Football Time in Tennessee

Betsy at Blue Hole Falls, Elizabethton, Tennessee. February 14, 2008.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy bleeds orange every football season.  She’s a very dedicated Tennessee Vol fan.

This has been a difficult season for Betsy.  The Vols are a very young team playing a very hard schedule.  One of the bright spots for the team has been their talented young quarterback, but he got hurt and will be out for several weeks.

Hopefully Betsy will get through the rest of the season without too much heartburn.

This picture was taken on Valentine Day, 2008, while we were visiting waterfalls in northeastern Tennessee.

    My life would surely be easier if I liked sports.

    Go the Orange (That is my team’s colour too. (She’s cute)

  3. Maple Lane Says:

    Love the picture of Betsy. That’s too bad about the quarterback being injured. Not too long ago, we saw a bright orange truck with a specialty license plate for your team. You and Betsy would surely be #1 fans in a truck like that one!

  4. Sandra Says:

    so now Betsy fits in with all the Fall Colors you have been posting, if she sat in her header photo she would be totally camouflaged.

  5. Ruth Hiebert Says:

    Lovely picture. She will do just fine,with you by her side.

  6. Busy Bee Suz Says:

    Oh, such a cute photo of Betsy. I hope she makes it through the season unscathed. 🙂

  7. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    Great shot and Betsy looks wonderful and she does indeed fit in with the Fall colors! I do hope her “team” does well this year and besides, how fortunate she is to have you by her side — good season or bad! Enjoy your day and I hope you both have a great weekend, George!

    That’s an adorable photo. I sort of “bleed orange” at football time every year, too. In my case, it’s for the U of Texas, though. And they’re not having a very good season either. So I can definitely sympathize with Betsy!

  9. Rose Says:

    We are sort of in the same boat…but not quite. Our Colts are missing Peyton cause he is on the injured list as I am sure you have heard. We have not won a single game…who would think one guy would make that much difference.

    We bleed Carolina Blue around here. When the Packers are playing we switch to green and gold.

  11. Happyone Says:

    Betsy always has a smile! She looks good the fall colors. : )

  12. dayphoto Says:

    I agree with Happyone….Betsy ALWAYS has a smile on her face, always! And fall colors are her colors!


  13. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    Betsy looks like the sunrise on your post today!!! And I must say that picture you took of the fireworks on her blog is just stunning!!!

  14. Pam Says:

    The golden color of Betsy’s favorite team suites her sparkling personality to a T. Cute pic of your sweetheart, George.

    be well, be happy 🙂

  15. Carletta Says:

    Betsy is the happiest person I know. I’m thinking you have a lot to do with that George. 🙂
    Best of luck to her Vols!

  16. The Incredible Woody Says:

    My Vol Fan is in the same boat as Betsy!

  17. Anna, MyOnlyPhoto Says:

    Go Betsy Go. This is such a nice picture of her. She looks so happy, and hope all works out for her George.

    She is very passionate about the things she likes, isn’t she? And cute as a button to boot!

  19. Tanya Says:

    well she looks cute, love her happy smile! we are in hokie territory here but no one in my house is a tech fan….living in ga for a few years have turned my kids into uga fans….my daughter really, REALLY wants to attend that college!

    Lovely photo from Betsy. Take good care from her.

  21. Neal Says:

    I don’t watch much football but I always check the Tennessee score. 😦

  22. Ewok Says:

    Oh what a lovely image of Betsy. Thanks for sharing.

    I understand how to be emotionally involved with one’s sports team. I was a lunatic with the SF Giants, baseball, last year 🙂
