Yay For College Football Season!

This weekend marked the beginning of another college football season. The 7:30 p.m. game was a little bit of a stretch for me (I prefer earlier games), but we "tailgated" before the game at the bar of a local restaurant and then took the bus across the lake to Husky Stadium. There is nothing like the energy of the stadium on game day, and Saturday was no exception. The air was buzzing as we walked into the stadium and you could feel that change was afoot. A new season, a new coach, and a new opportunity to prove that our team was a worthy opponent.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't have high expectations. I'm a Husky fan, after all. However, it was refreshing to see that our team came with something to prove, and we were in it to win it. We didn't win the game, but we hung in there until the bitter end, and all of us left with our heads held high, and with great hope for the season. Yep, it's a new year, and I'm excited to get back into the swing of Saturday football games at Husky Stadium.

Go Huskies! :-)
