College Game Day!!!!

This is it. September 2nd 2010. Georgia State University's FIRST Football Game EVER!!!!!!

Can you believe it?! I can't! We have been dreaming, wishing, hoping, and waiting for this day! I mean, this is historic, and being able to be a part of it makes it even better. 

I remember when they would have surveys asking if we would be interested in a football program; when the talks of a football team were just a rumor, and when we all secretly prayed for the one day they would announce it. I was on campus, April 17th 2008, when GSU announced we would be getting a football team!!! 

So here we are, two years later, on THE day of our first Georgia State University tailgate, our first game, and memories that will last a lifetime. 

Yes, we are in an independent division. Yes, we are playing teams most people (including myself) have never heard of. Yes, we are playing in the GA Dome - Home of the Atlanta Falcons (pretty cool!). Yes, our last game of the season will be at Alabama, and they are going to kill us. To all that I respond: SO WHAT?! We finally have a team to claim!!!

I took a half-day, and we are planning on getting there around 2pm. Yes, the game is at 7.30pm, but I don't want to miss anything! They have a lot of festivities planned, and I want to make sure I soak it all in. I am planning to take loads of pictures, and make this day as memorable as possible! 

My GSU gear for today!
