Let the Games Begin

Tonight is the first college football game of the season, and not surprisingly it is SEC game because we have the best conference. ESPN is showcasing some great football tonight - MSU vs LSU. As many of you know MSU is my football team and I know we aren't the great team like Auburn but they are my team - deal with it! I am looking foward to watching football on Saturdays and having my dear hubby at home. Which this also allows me to go places on Saturday without kids because I know he will be at home.

This year we have added a little fun into the season. Since my dear hubby cannot seem to get enough fantasy sports, he has added fantasy football to his college pickem as well. He got a jump on Jeff S. on setting up the pickem in which they have to type in the password goauburn - fun. Well, he would not let me in the pickem with the guys, but he set one up for the our dear family. Yes it is girls vs guy, and yes I said girls - the girls are going to pickem. Let the fun begin.

Hail State (Fight Song)

Maroon and White (Alma Mater)

In the heart of Mississippi

Made by none but God's own hands

Stately in her nat'ral splendor

Our Alma Mater proudly stands.

State College of Mississippi,Fondest mem'ries cling to thee.

Life shall hoard thy spirit ever,

Loyal sons we'll always be.

Chorus:Maroon and White! Maroon and White!

Of thee with joy we sing.

Thy colors bright, our souls delight,

With praise our voices ring.

Tho' our life some pow'r may vanquish,

Loyalty can't be o'er run;

Honors true on thee we lavish

Until the setting of the sun;

Live Maroon and White for ever,

Ne'er can evil mar thy fame,Nothing us from thee can sever,

Alma Mater we acclaim.

I'm not really sure how to respond to this other than, GO DONNA!

Win or lose, we have the best Alma Mater in the country. Beautiful. I still remember standing on the field during halftime at Homecoming and getting goosebumps all over when it got to the chorus and the drum rolls got louder and louder...great memories.
