This was the annual flag football game between Special Olympics Missouri and Special Olympics Arkansas.  The Missouri team was made up from  players from the Central Area.  Gary Link was the announcer.  Truman the Tiger was there and MU athletes came out to support the two teams.  The cheer team from Central Area perform their dance number before the game and cheered during the game.  It was fun.
