To help alleviate the angst on my move to Arizona, I bought this whimsical (read: cheesy) garden gnome at Kohl's to accompany my son and I on the drive. We named him Gophie, and took pictures of him in various spots along the way.
I published a few posts on this blog, Gophie the Garden Gnome, and will continue to do so as Gophie and my family acclimate to Phoenix.
I have only missed one home game since 1998, so this is quite a shock to our football system. This was a work-related move by my better half, Gopherfaith. We made a list of reasons to move and reasons to stay in Minnesota, and Gopher football was #3 after family and friends.
On the upside, it's a 5 1/2 drive to Las Cruces for the NMSU game--see you there.
