Not a crazy person. Promise.
Happy First College Football Game of the Season!!!
Oh, football. What have you done to me? It took my husband five long years, but he got there. He got me to appreciate, enjoy and be just downright obsessed with football. You would think that when we moved to the best college town in the Midwest that I would embrace Mizzou football the moment I got there. It was the opposite actually. I loathed it, to the point that for the first couple of years, I made the point of going shopping or running an errand whenever a game was on. I took it as an opportunity to shop in peace while all the crazies tailgated their precious Saturday afternoons away and then spend another 3 hours in the stadium screaming their little hearts out. It was only fitting that I ended up being those same people I mocked when all was said and done. Oh, the irony.
Now here I am, a gazillion miles away, being forced to get up at the crack of dawn on the Sabbath to watch our beloved Tigers. It certainly won’t be the same. Unfortunately, I don’t think anything will match last year’s experience. Season tickets, front row seats for every single game, traveling to an Ole Miss game in Mississippi, winning the SEC East by beating Texas A&M (and ensuring that Johnny Football ended his College career with a loss) and then, the cherry on top, getting the chance to head to Dallas for the Cotton Bowl…and come home winners.
Football memories, I have plenty of. Now it’s time to make more memories, just on a different time zone. M-I-Z!
