It's the most wonderful time of the year!

And no. I'm not talking about Christmas.

It's College Football time!!!

The Buckeyes take on Marshall tonight....K-State plays UCLA on Saturday.
Does it get much better than that??

Since the time I was about 14 I've been a self proclaimed college football fanatic.
My family has had season tickets to Kansas State since 1996,
We've travelled to more bowl games, away games and Big 12 championships than I can count.
Seeing Willy the Wildcat brings a smile to my face.
I've cheered them on through good seasons and bad....the pouring rain and the scorching heat.
I've slowly turned my husband into a fan.
One of the first things we bought for Jamie....was a K-State onesie.
I love the Wildcats.

I went to THE Ohio State University.
I had coveted season tickets to the Horseshoe all four years I was there.
I travelled to Purdue.
I watched them beat Michigan....3 times.
I have a Block "O" tattooed on my ankle.
My Senior year, me and 3 of my best friends travelled to Tempe, AZ to watch our Buckeyes win the National Championship.
I actually cried when they won.
That's when I knew I was officially a football nut.

So while I'm sad to see summer coming to end, I'm like a kid in a candy store knowing that it's football time again!!

Here's to hoping both my teams have a great season!

Awww, he is too cute in that outfit. Wait until he says football for the first time. I think my husband almost cried when that happened ;)

Jules said...

I love Jamie in his Ohio State gear! He is going to be a big fan someday just like his mommy ;) You got a tattoo. That is dedication to a team.

Jen said...

I totally share your sentiments about summer ending and football season starting! The only difference is I'm a NFL fan, not so much college. I went to a university that cut it's football program a few years before I arrived on campus, so I never got into a college football team.

Kelly said...

I am a huge college football fan too. Other I'm loyal to the SEC. Go Gamecocks! I graduated from Appalachian State and we beat Michigan too. LOL! I'm sure ya'll were just as excited about that as we were.
