Fight On for ol' SC

Our men Fight On to victory!

This weekend we went to the USC Trojans season opener at the LA Memorial Colosseum!

I heart my alma mater so much!


(That's us tailgating at the Mr.'s Fraternity Alumni Tailgate)

Our season tickets this year are the best seats we've ever had!

Really great, huh?!

Despite the 90-degree weather, the fans were still out in full force.

(Yes, yes, I know, Californians are wimps about weather. We're like Goldilocks, we can't have it too hot or too cold. We accept nothing less than 74 and sunny.)



USC won 56-3 and now we are ranked #3! In Pete we Trust!


But what I also loved on Saturday was seeing all of my bloggy girlfriends blogging and blowing up Twitter with College Football game day updates. (And seeing babies in game day gear makes me want a little one so bad! Like, tomorrow. I think that's the first thing I'd buy if I found out that I was pregnant).

From your blogs I learned so much about your College Football traditions and personal stories. Like from Kelly's Korner I learned about how SEC girls dress for games. Or from Kate at Elefantitas Alegres about what it's like to live in a "house divided". Or from Megan at In this Wonderful Life about how she decorates her home for Football season.

It's so fun to be friends with so many college football fans across the country! Although I don't know if Mrs. Everlasting and I can still friends next weekend when our teams play each other! Ha! Fight On Trojans!

Did you go to a College Football Game this weekend? What College Football Traditions do you have or love?

It looks like you had a great time! I can't believe you can get season tickets to the games... Our stadium seats over 100,000 and we can only get lottery tickets to one game a year. Students and faculty get season tickets though... and major donators of course.

Looks like a great game! I don't know that all those USC fans will be smiling next week though when my buckeyes shut them down in the shoe! :)

O-H.....I-O!

One of the things I was amazed at out in Louisiana is the amount of little girls who have LSU cheerleading outfits. I think every girl here has one, and seeing them in them makes me secretly want a baby too.

I do think our friendship might be ending though as well, because not only am I a LSU, I also choose UCLA over USC. :)

So fun! I'm a Boilermaker myself...and my husband went to Indiana so we are at odds. But I care way more than he does...plus he's an SEC fan so we rarely butt heads :)

just the two of us! said...

My husband and I have season tickets to the Mississippi State games. We love our bulldogs! We always tailgate with my in-laws before the game, and then all sit together during the game and cheer our little hearts out. Gotta love college football.

LOVE IT! I am so sad I couldn't go! BUT I want to go to a game soon. And next week wed? Does that work for you?

Fight on! I'm a Trojan fan married to a Texas fan, so that gets, um, interesting sometimes.

We have season tickets to Texas, and I have to say the games here are a kick. The tailgating here is just at another level.
