Football Friday

Okay, so you would think that being from Athens, GA, I'd be a little bit more of a die hard football fan. Don't get me wrong, I adore Saturdays spent tailgating and attending footballs games, but until I attended App, I didn't really have a "team". Sure, I went to UGA games because who in Athens doesn't? 


But, my heart didn't swell with quite as much pride as it does when I'm tailgating in Stadium parking lot, walking by Duck Pond and sitting on the grassy hill in The Rock. 


Unfortunately, this year I had to go and graduate so I won't get to go to many games. I'm planning on Homecoming at least and we're all headed down to Athens because App is playing UGA in November! Yes, we know they'll get killed, but we'll be rocking that yellow and black and screaming out heads off. 

The best part of App football is the weather. The beginning of the season is a lovely Fall temperature. Usually around the 60s and 70s and it's perfect "drink your face off and act ridiculous" weather. As you can see below...

The rest of the season is FREEZING. Sometimes this really sucks, but you kind of get used to it and you drink a lot. It's always fun when warm weather schools come up, like GA Southern, and they have NO idea what is going on. Two years ago, it snowed and they were all bundled up and our players were just in normal gear. It's pretty funny to watch and judge. 


Now that I'm living in Charlotte, though, it's going to be hard to support my Mountaineers. Maybe I'll have to get on board the Panther train? From what I hear, they're not the best in the world but I did go to their Draft Party and a pretty awesome App player now plays for them. 


Go link up with Erin, and dream about football season with us! It's rapidly approaching :) 

Love, Fun & Fotball

I love app state! They surprise a lot of teams every year, not to mention one of the prettiest campuses I have ever seen.

So excited that football season is almost here! And I totally want to crash your party and come to the UGA game with you... I'll have to live vicariously through you!

Thanks so much for linking up!

happy to find another NC blogger!I feel ya on the love for the fall games, our first home game at ECU is always blistering hot so I welcome the cooler weather games!

The App game is always my fave, but I'm obviously decked out in purple & gold. If it's at home I'd rather go to that than Homecoming- better tailgating, better playing, and better parties! I'm definitely gonna miss "Beat App Week" this year since I'm graduated now. (not that we ever do... still love my Cats, though!)

I'm also a NC transplant-except I'm from Alabama. :) I feel like I need to visit ASU's campus. I bet it's beautiful. Several of my coworkers went to college there.
