WNY 2014

Saturday, September 27, 2014
UB (officially known at The State University of New York at Buffalo) Homecoming Weekend featured a MAC (Mid-American Conference) league football game vs. Miami University. Since Tamiko was given free tickets and a tailgate party as a former UB student athlete, and Kent graduated from Miami, we decided to attend.
Three Dog Night provided entertainment
