    Favorite Part of Gameday at JTS

    Since Football is just around the corner, what is your favorite thing about gameday at JTS? (besides the actual game, as thats reason we're all there anyway)

    I like to get my seats around the time both teams are done warming up and heading back to the locker room. BUT my favorite part are the 5 to 10 minutes after the National Anthem and just before ISU comes on to the field. You really start to feel the anticipation and energy of the game itself; I actually start getting nervous. I don't know what it is; the band, crowd chants, stadium starting to fill up etc, but I've felt that way since I was young. Looking forward to September 2nd.

    Tailgating and getting to tip one with friends I probably haven't seen since the last game last year.

    My wife loves that 10 minutes before kickoff as well and is always trying to drag me in early from the tailgate lots. I'm always annoyed because at the time there's nothing more important than "just one more beer", but am always glad when I'm there and the excitement starts to build. Of course, there's always the moment when the canon goes off after the 4th quarter runs out and we all run onto the field after a Cyclone victory!

    Driving the highway between DSM and Ames. Honking at the ISU flag that flies alongside the road on the way. Getting there while its still dark for gameday. Drinking with friends and family. Girls in skirts. Cooking 90lbs of chicken wings. The song they play before kickoff...the whoooooaaa whoooaaaa whoaaa oh oh oh oh song that they play everywhere. And the the actual kickoff.

    Least favorite: 2nd quarter headache from drinking then stopping then screaming. Traffic after the game. Driving for 30 minutes home. Being worthless the rest of the day/night.

    Use to LOVE watching the team walk down the side of the Jake. I thought it looked badass as they made their way into the stadium.

    walking from keg shop to the student tailgate, through all the houses, bombing a bottle of Sambuca.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Tailgating. The run to the front row seats for big games...

    and as cheesy as it sounds the walk in.. there atmosphere and the feeling you get after giving your ticket is just plain fun.

    I like when the band starts playing the drums and then running onto the field in circles. Especially the first game of the year. So many memories when they start that.

    Every.Single.Thing!!

    Tip-Top. Grillin'. The fact that one day a week my wife is as excited about football as I am and it takes priority over anything else that day!

    Call me crazy but I love the late season games when you have to wear a coat and gloves but the sun is still shining on a perfect fall Saturday. And then we end the game with a rush of the field. So pretty much last years CU game. Man that was Awesome.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Nothing says fall like the crisp air, the marching band with drum corps prominent and long afternoon shadows on the field.

    Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?!?! I know I am!

    I love everything from the time we start packing up the car Thursday night until Sunday morning when we start our drive back to Austin.

    The smell of all of the grilling in the parking lots, the band playing, team entrance and everything that encompasses the aura that is college football....nothing else like it
