Congratulations, Gorillas!

This past Saturday, my alma-mater, Pittsburg State University of Pittsburg, KS, won the Division II NCAA National Football Championship.  I want to take a moment to congratulate the Gorillas and share some Gorilla pride!  Below is the video of the celebrations in Pittsburg when the team arrived home Saturday evening.  I was in Pittsburg a few hours before to pick up my national champions shirt, but other commitments kept me from being able to join in the celebrations.  Oh well.  It looks like it was an exciting gathering!

Here's a pic of me with one of my coworkers wearing our new Gorilla gear to work on Monday.  The quote in smaller print at the bottom of the shirts says "Not too bad for a team picked 5th in the conference."

  1. Way to go, Gorillas! That's a big deal! My alma mater is the University of Kentucky, and while we are great in basketball, we aren't such hot stuff in football, sad to say. So, I will give a big football hip hip hooray for the Gorillas. By the way, we have a Pittsburg in Kentucky, also with no "h" at the end. it is a teensy place with no university.
