The Monsters of the Midway are ready to take the field! It's opening day and Isla Swerski and Gannon O'Connor are ready to cheer on the pride and joy of Illinois! And maybe have a few sausages...
I lost count of how many times we sang the fight song, but it must have helped lead the way to victory over the Colts 41-21! Woohoo!
After the win, we headed outside for some post-game sidewalk decorating.
Gannon quickly turned into the chalk monster, coloring on himself and even taking a taste of his writing instrument.
Gannon: "What's this hopscotch you keep talking about?"Isla: "No, it's a HOS-COPTSCH!"
