One of the best parts of going back to school is football season. It doesn’t matter if your school’s team completely rocks or totally sucks, the experience of a football Saturday is to college as a hungover Saturday is to…well, college.
Waking up at the buttcrack of dawn is well worth it when you know there will be tailgate kegstands followed by the best burnt cheeseburger you’ve ever tasted. Even if the bun fell on the ground. And that’s before the game even starts.
Once you grab your seat, the real fun begins. Nothing beats seeing your team rush the field to that song from “300” and everything feels like it’s moving in slow motion. The cheers, the band, the stupid mascots you can’t help but love, the spandex, the running back punching someone in the face…
Well, if you go to Oregon, at least.
While most of us won’t get to experience Jerry-Springer-meets-college-football this season, I’m still super pumped for my football Saturdays. I’ve got the face paint ready.
Where’s my burger?
