Where y'all at?
I'm proud to say I stayed till the goddamn end.
As the clock ticked down to zero and fans headed in mass droves for the exits, not to return again till next year, I couldn't leave.
A friend and I took pictures till we were blue in the face. We went all the way down to the front row and took some more, chilling and mingling with the other seniors. Then went for a farewell lap around the Big house....
We also stayed and listened to the alma mater and watched the band seniors give a farewell performance of their own. By the time we left, the place was all but empty. A tear may have come to my eye...
I honestly don't know if and when I'll be able to return for a football game again (I'm applying like a fiend for jobs and it looks like I may get one that takes me overseas). Walking up the stairs to the exit, one final time, was emotionally crippling.
What about you guys? Did you tailgate extra hard? Make it to the game at all? Scream your lungs out? Cuss out Bret Bielma? Give Montee Ball the nickname "Sweaty"? I know I did all that.
