Hello old friends! Yes I know it's been awhile since I've posted here on FTRS... but now that football is back, expect me to make a few more appearances around the blog! College football is back and yours truly couldn't be happier about it. That's really all I have to say... but I wanted to share my thoughts with you all about what makes college football special to me just because I feel like it. Without further ado here we go...
Tailgating, road trips, Paul Johnson!, The Ramblin Reck, Heckling Clemson fans, Heckling any other fans, drinking bourbon at 7am and no one else thinking that is somehow taboo, this video, and this video, bratwurst, seeing your football family that you only see once a week, for 4-5 months a year at tailgates, charcoal, cold fried chicken, driving home from a great road trip hungover as hell, screaming at refs, booking hotels on priceline 3 days before the game because you just decided to go that morning, rushing the field, big hits, watching this play from the sidelines at Raymond James stadium, Yellow Jacket Alley, I'm a Ramblin Reck from Georgia Tech, Up with the White and Gold, Joshua Nesbitt going to a coin toss without his helmet on, almost getting arrested for shouting the final score of the UVA game in downtown Charlottesville, 10 hour bus rides back to Atlanta from Charlottesville, WINNING ACC CHAMPIONSHIPS.
There are so many more things, but I can't think of them right now because I'm SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR SATURDAY! I'll be traveling back from St. Louis to Atlanta today to begin the festivities! Bourbon and Cigars with Winfield and Co. to kick things off around 10pm tonight.
What are your favorite things about college football??!
