College Football!

Is there anything better

than a cool, crisp fall day

and college football?

I think not.

I don't even like football

but I have learned to like

football games.

I once told someone

that I thought football

was for morons.

Really, I did say that.
I didn't mean to sound like such a hater...

it's just that the game itself
does nothing for me.

I just like the game.

You know,
the frito - chili pie and pepsi...
the smell of Nutty Bavarian nuts 
The sea of red and gold.

And this.

and this.

this is what I come back for
year after year.

I don't really care if
we win or lose,
as long as I can see this.

It's all about the Marching Band
for me.

The Pride of the Plains Marching Band.

and of course 
the dancing girls.

Here is Kevin's friend Cooper

directing the band.
He is one of three 
drum majors this year.

They are putty in his hands.

They are the best part 
of this college football day

We lost today 
but I don't care.

It was fun 
and isn't that what it's all about?

That and this too.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
