Are You Ready for Some Football?...


Yesterday The Nancy and I attended the West Virginia University’s football game against Baylor, the #4-rated team in the country.  While the outcome of this game may have been doubted by a few, it was not by me.

As we entered the stadium and took our seats, there was an air of support for the WVU team I have not seen in the four years we have held season tickets.  It was thick with enthusiasm and excitement.  Even the loss of the ball on the first play and eventual score by Baylor did not dampen it.  Within just a few minutes WVU answered with a touchdown of its own.  It wasn’t long thereafter, WVU took a 14-13 lead and never looked back.

I am not the fan of football my wife is, but I have to say, there is something about being in a stadium with 60,000 crazed football fanatics (and critics) that brings out the beast in me.  As I sat there in the damp, cool October air, shivering at times, the thought of seeking a warmer venue never entered my mind.  I was mesmerized.  It was WVU football at its finest. 

All I can say is “Wow!” what a hell of a day to be a Mountaineer fan.

And that is all I have to say about that…
