Dear Andrew, Jared and Wes,
Today was a major milestone in Florida State University history. The legend of FSU football, Bobby Bowden, coached his last game in the Gator Bowl. FSU played West Virginia. At the start of the game, our team looked a little off but once the second quarter started, it was classic FSU football! FSU won this game 33-21 and allowed Bobby Bowden to retire as he will be remembered... as a winner!
During the game, you guys were napping but were awake in time to see the end of the game. You all spent most of the game playing but please know that you saw his last game. I took a few pictures so when you guys go to Florida State (hint hint) and play football (hint hint), you will be able to say that you watched Bobby's last game.
Bobby Bowden coached at Florida State University for 34 years and I was honored to have been a student during the highlights of his career! I was an FSU student during the season that resulted in the 1993 National Championship. I am sure by the time you read this, that will seem like ages ago. However, your Mommy was there!
I hope you will always be proud to wear Garnet and Gold and continue to chomp and say 'ooo, oo, ooo, oo!' which you already do. FSU is a college deep in tradition and Bobby Bowden is a major reason.
I know there will come a day when you say, "Bobby who?" but I will do my best to continue to educate you about the real gentleman of college football. I also hope that you will have the privileged to play football for someone of his character. Bobby Bowden, we thank you for everything you did for FSU. You will be missed!
Here are a few pictures from this day so you will know you watched this last game...
