I don’t know how much fun watching the Giants will be, but since I happen to be in Tallahassee there will be some good FSU games coming up. Normally I’d say that the problem with college football is that too many games are non-competitive – the last one I saw was FSU vs. Maryland. The Terps were down 21 zip at the half, which is when I left. I think it was 63 zip by the end. Anyhow, the Giants aren’t always competitive either and they are on the receiving end so let’s talk about watching college football, shall we?
Grab your fan paraphernalia, maybe some LSU luggage, and hit the road. I know in Tallahassee, tailgaters arrive Thursday night – you need to be a booster to park on campus I think. Friday night is the downtown get down – free music and a street party atmosphere. They sell food and clothes (mostly for women). Before the Maryland game they had some famous country music guy. At least they said he was famous.
Then you have the game on Saturday and I suppose a victory party follows on Saturday night. Then you go home and watch the New York football Giants play like turds I guess.
So anyway, what are your experiences traveling for football games? I know I met some brothers in Hawaii who go somewhere warm every year to watch the Super Bowl. Of course that year in Hawaii, one brother left the bar we were watching the game in at halftime. Seems he had a date with a working girl. Couldn’t schedule that for after the Super Bowl. That Super Bowl I watched in Hawaii seems like a lifetime ago – the Giants won that Superbowl. Now the best thing we can win is an early draft pick.
