It's Game Day Baby! Trojans!

Today is the University of Southern California's first home game.

The Mr. and I are huge USC fans. We met there. We go to every home game. We pretty much bleed Cardinal and Gold.

2009 was definitely not the best football season in USC history, but we still had a blast at all the games -- tailgating, cheering, and lovin' our alma mater.

But the 2010 off-season was downright awful, with Pete Carroll leaving and the insanely harsh NCAA sanctions against USC (note: I don't know who I loathe more, the greedy jerk Reggie Bush, or the NCAA for making an example out of USC). I know lots of people are happy to see USC fall from grace and that a lot of fair weather fans have abandoned the Trojans. But you know what....

I'm just happy that I can once again put my USC gear on and loudly declare that IT'S GAME DAY BABY!

Heck, even Judah's ready for the game!

(Maybe we'll leave the game on TV for him at home so he can watch. Just kidding.)

Seriously, for me there is almost no greater feeling in the world than walking through USC's campus as it's teeming with tailgaters, and then stepping into a jam-packed Coliseum to watch USC take the field.

I love the fall. I love USC. Sanctions be damned. IT'S GAME DAY BABY!

Thank goodness for game day! And you need to get Judah a jersey. He wants one. He told me ;)

I am a tad bit jealous. One of my regrets in life is not going to a big college with a good football team. My alma mater didn't even have a football team. But I love tailgating and going to games. I think I'll have to adopt a team. :)

I love meeting other women who love football - we went to our alma mater's game yesterday - so much fun! Football season is my second favorite time of year (second only to March Madness)!

Oh, and also, having attended a university that's been under sanctions before (for basketball), it gets better. ;)
