Game Day Wake Up Thread

Submitted by WolverSwede on August 31st, 2013 at 7:59 AM

Sometimes it feels like an eternity until the season begins, but today Team 134 will take the field.   This thread is dedicated to home opener morning traditions.  Here is mine:

  1.  Wake up
  2. Blast The Victors on whatever speakers I have available with absolutely no regard for those living with me.
  3. Crack first beer during The Victors
  4. Watch a succession of hype videos on YouTube.   This must include the Better Son/Daughter video because one must remember the bad times to appreciate the good.
  5. Eat pancakes

It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.

It's finally here! I never go to the first game. I haven't been to opening day since the horror. Since then, I've stayed home, got up early and went to the gym, cone home and make chili. Friends bring burgers and dogs to grill I love this day.

Paul Finebaum just said OSU wouldn't be one of the top 5-6 teams in the SEC.  I hate OSU as much as the next guy, but that is one of the more asinine comments I've seen by ESPN.  That says something, given the fact that Mark May and Skip Bayless both work there.

Alabama is a great program; Georgia and LSU look to be good this year.  But South Carolina nearly lost to an 8-5 UM team last year without any semblance of a running game, A&M is going to have to deal with Manziel and a tough schedule, and Florida was one of the more overrated 10+ win squads I saw last year.  The SEC kool-aid is strong with ESPN, but this is getting ridiculous.

I live in Madison. Fun drive home from the farmers market this morning. Kids dusting off the cobwebs and getting the pregaming going. The whole thing just put me in a great mood for the day.

I'm planning a round of golf for Noon or so. OSU will be playing which means all the sheeple will be watching that game, and hopefully, I should be able to make it through 18 in 3 hours, giving me just enough time to get home, shower and plant my ass on the couch.

Got up, brushed teeth/showered/etc, turned on some hype music:

I study with a friend around noon for a few hours which should help pass the time before kickoff.

The guy texts me back 10 minutes before the meeting saying he can't make it and wants to reschedule.


This is why you always text your friends before hopping in the car, kids. Flakiness is a worse epidemic than painkiller abuse these days.

Well at least it's a slow day so far at Children's Hospital. I'll be listening to the game on the radio assuming things don't get busy and then watching the game on my DVR later when I get home.
