the first football game of the year wasn't exactly what we had planned. as we packed the car with towels, changes of clothes, and ponchos.....i was begging to just stay home and dry and watch it on tv. i lost. so we drove through the flood to starkville and cheered with all the other crazy people. thankfully, all my people were more than happy to be in the rain!
even uncle ronnie showed up with a smile. he was the smart one with his golf rain gear on while the rest of us fought with the ponchos!
and wet or dry, the new stadium is great. when we walked in the new gate, i couldn't even figure out where i was! this might not sound right coming from the mouth (fingers?) of a state fan, but it's just so unlike anything else we've ever done. it really is awesome! i can't wait to see what they do over at dudy noble!
we put our cowbells to use all night, and thankfully the rain quit right at kickoff.
poor southern was just overmatched. i felt bad for them. but we'll take a first win on the season for sure. UAB is up next this weekend. and hopefully, i can leave the ponchos and towels at home!
