Collegiate Spirit

There's nothing quite like a college football game! In my last post, I mentioned I attended the Outback Bowl, convenientally located in Tampa less than one hour north from SDP Headquarters.  It was a great venue. The game itself...well...all I can say is 'WOW'.  I've endured many Michigan State football nailbiters, but this one one takes the cake (or perhaps in this case the bloomin' onion).  MSU pulled off a come-from-behind victory (down 16-0 in the 3rd quarter) to win in triple overtime.  What I love about this Spartan team is their never say die attitude and Spartan spirit.  After blocking a field goal to win the game, the players celebrated on the field and made their way to the MSU fan section where, beaming with pride, they sang the Spartan fight song.  Fight!  Fight!  Rah team fight!  Victory for MSU!  What a sight to behold.  (By the way, I was so caught up in the moment I'm amazed any of my pics are in focus.)

I see a few happy football players! That was some come-back and must have been really exciting to see!

Well, congratulations, SRQ. You are a loyal and proud Spartan. I didn't watch the game but I read about it and thought of you. Several of the bowl games went into overtime. Crazy! Your shot came out exceptionally well.
