The Best Pictures From Montana’s Snowmageddon Win Saturday Night
Saturday night was another fairytale evening in Washington-Grizzly Stadium when the Montana Grizzlies devoured the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens 49-19.
The night's forecast called for possible flurries, but it was much more than measly little flurries. What we got instead were a couple of blanketing snowfalls throughout the first half. It was near whiteout conditions that received national recognition from Bleacher Report and other social media sites.
Right in the thick of it, I was fortunate enough to be on the sideline for the winter wonderland shellacking. Here are some of the best pictures I snagged when my hands weren't frozen.
20k Fans endured the snow
It wasn't a sold-out crowd, but the 20 thousand plus who showed up made an impact on the game. Shoutout to all you snowmen and snowwomen.
Where's his top half?
This cheerleader looked like a pair of legs with that white top blending in with the snow.
The real MVP
Shoutout to our awesome Senior Associate AD of Facilities, Chuck Maes. Again, we were expecting flurries, not a snowstorm. Chuck had to spring into action with the rest of his facilities team to shovel off the yard lines. Thanks, Chuck!
My favorite pic
My favorite shot of the night. Delaware was on blast all night. Great work from the University's content team as always.
Local sideline reporter feeling the frost
I swear I'm not as sad as I look in this photo. It was just tough to keep my eyes open because flakes were bombarding my iris.
That's a safety in the snow... a snowfty?
Griz running back and special teamer Isiah Childs celebrating the safety in the snow.
Bears love the snow, right?
Hands in the snow, it doesn't matter
Military personnel will always be tougher than me. Look at this squad! They've got their exposed hands planted on the snow. No gloves or anything. Plus, the Griz put up 49 points... that's a lot of pushups! They even built a snow bunker in case a snowball fight broke out.
Do you wanna build a snowman?
Someone even built a pair of snowmen in the stands. Did they count toward the announced attendance 20,580?
Goodnight from Wa-Griz
There is something special about the empty stadium pic, but there's a little extra pizazz with the snow covering. We will see you Friday at 7pm for the quarterfinals showdown with #7 Furman.
