Mississippi State’s 1st game is August 31st, in Houston, TX. They will be playing OSU at Reliant Stadium, a fabulous facility that is home to NFL team Houston Texans. There will be a lot of fans caravanning over for the season opener. I surely plan on attending, also!
The 1st HOME game in fabulous Starkville is September 7th against Alcorn State, and we are all getting antsy wishing the next few weeks would zoom by!
With the countdown to the season opener getting closer, we have all our memories from seasons past that are resurging in our minds. A smile unconsciously comes to our faces about all our friends that made it great, all the good conversations, jokes, trips n falls, bathroom runs, and the heavenly smells of barbecue. And we can’t wait to do it all over again!
Feeling nostalgic and excited, I went to the Twitter-verse to figure out what fans are most excited about. Here is my Top Ten List of the Things You Are Most Looking Forward to this season!
Cowbell (ahem, I mean, drumroll) please…
10). You are excited to be back in Davis Wade Stadium. Period!
9). To wear your new maroon and white gear!
8). So your life won’t feel empty anymore (I laughed at this one!)
7). To see Tyler Russell eclipse previous passing records!
6). To See the expansion progress on the stadium!
5). To get in the atmosphere, and grill some burgers!
4). Grabbing a picture with Bully!
3). It’s your life, and your love!
2). To see all your friends you haven’t seen since last year!
1). To yell and ring your cowbells as the Dogs run onto the field!
I have to add, without the 140 character Twitter limit:
(This is more of a memory, I suppose, but something that makes game day special to me, nonetheless…)
Driving up the scenic Highway to Starkville, and seeing all the other cars with their State flags flying, giving a quick nod as we pass. Exchanging a half-second of eye contact that says, “yeah, we’re gonna kick some butt today”. Then a nice honk from the horn then zooming on down the road.
Have more to add to the list? Send me a comment and tell me what you love the most, and what YOU are most looking forward to!
