    Just ready for football

    I heard a local high school marching band practicing as I left for work this morning, and it just put me in that ready for football mood.

    Season can't get here soon enough, preseason NFL isn't doing much for me.

    Re: Just ready for football

    For me, it's the smell. Something about it cooling down and the smell of fall. That's what gets me going. Granted, it's not for a little while but it's always the reminder that football is here.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Our junior high kids had a great practice tonight. First night in full pads so we did form tackling. The kids were bringing it, hitting hard and really getting after each other. Just absolutely made my day. Man I can't wait to see ISU play again.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I love walking around campus and hearing the ISU band practice. Those damn drums get me every time.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: Just ready for football

    For me it's the sound of the crowd and the whistles from across town as the sophomore game is going on before the varsity game.

    Just saw highlights tonight from the Meskwaki high school's first ever home game. Really got me fired up!

    Re: Just ready for football

    When I'm at an ISU game, and the band starts walking through beating on the drums, I get chills. Just lets me know that I'm at the game for real. It's a very underrated part of the game atmosphere.

    When I was in high school the fall meant hunting AND football seasons. The night before a Friday game was as exciting as the hunting season which always opened the next day on Satyurday. No sleep ever for me that weekend!!!

    Re: Just ready for football

    I park north of Lincoln Way, East of University in the residential neighborhood for all FB games. The best part of the pregame for me is walking that long walk, headphones in listening to JW on the radio. The smell of grills, the sound of the dry leaves under your feet. The hoards of fans, blankets under arm, decked out in Card and Gold walking the same walk I do. Then walking south on University seeing all the tailgaters.
    Fall and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate the fact that it means summer is over and winter is fast approaching, but those couple months where it's not too hot not too cold are great for FB in central Iowa. 11 Days Away, Baby!!!
