So, over the course of the past five years that I've read this blog... Has it really been five years now? Who knows, it seems like it. Anyway, I've not really found a reason yet to email in a question, post a comment, or write a diary until now. Sure I've had a million things I wanted to know or ask, but just really haven't built up the motivation. Anyway, I reached the proverbial boiling point this weekend while attending the EMU game. Having gone to games now for the better part of twenty years (starting at the tender age of 14), I am finally going to ask that the mgoblog nation participate in my grass roots attempt to bring change to the gameday "organized" cheering.
If I have to reverse the wave one more time...
Seriously... In the 20 years that I've been going to games at the Big House, the organized cheers haven't improved... or changed.
Seriously.... who does the wave anymore?
Oh yeah... That guys does...
Anyway, I'm quite tired of being able to tell my wife in the third quarter, "Guess what?? When the wave comes around again; they're going to do it really fast this time, then they're going to reverse it! I'm giddy like a school girl, but I'm not a school girl, so I'll just say that I'm really excited."
Anyway, I'm picking on the wave, but a bunch of the other crap is monotonous, boring, quiet, and purposeless (what is that thing where you face your palms to the sky and "raise the roof")?
Yep, thinking back to my section at the EMU game, these guys look guilty.
Back to the wave, even its own wiki
describes it as something you do during downtime. Not while you're trying to watch the damn game.
Enough rambling... I just hope that many of your are as tired as I am of the same-ole-same-ole. We have wholesale change at hand within the football program. Lets liven up the crowd.
HOLD THE ROPE!
