In my first taste of college football from the stands, I was a little bored. I'm sure some are twisting in their computer chairs and getting ready to slam footballs through my eyes ... but hear me out. It was only boring because the MIZZOU TIGERS slaughtered the Cowboys from McNeese State. The game was over from the first two minutes. There was no suspense. No drama. No last minute heroics. Coincidentally against San Diego State (Week 3) there was all of this. Oh well! Had a great time with the 242Connect crew. We searched all over for tailgating parties and checked out The Jungle. It was sparse but thanks to MU STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION for a great afternoon.

After leaving The Jungle we took a walk down Greek Row or part of it on Rollins Ave. And we thought it was funny that smoke was draining out of a wooden house that was going to be the new home for the Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority. We also spotted who we presumed were frat boys coming out of the house. We assumed this because they were wearing shirts with Greek letters on them. We didn't take the pics to be funny but more so IN CASE the joint went up in flames--we might have some historic pics. Come to find out the sorority plans to raze the building and raise a new one.

Made it to the game and got to take in some of the pre-game festivities. The warmups, the tunnel, the OTHER Golden Girls, and the sea of gold building in THE ZOU. I think this is a great part of the experience cause everyone in the group got to see everything sorta come together.

After awhile we got the M-I-Z Z-O-U chant down. HOWEVER someone who would go nameless didn't feel school spirit. Another cool part of the day was a score. Not only did poor Truman (The Mascot) have to do push-ups to match the new Missouri score but a canon fired off as well. It was exciting -- EVEN AFTER a 50 point game!!

It was a great first outing even if it was a boring 50-6 win for Mizzou. I guess it's a good thing to be used to winning!
