A Nole Fan to the Very End

by Meghann on September 18, 2011

I don’t want to talk about it.

That’s a lie. I do want to talk about.

Yes, we lost, but I’m still proud of my Seminoles. We didn’t get mowed over like last year and – at one point – we were tied and a win looked possible. Had we stayed away from all those penalties – and actually kept all our good players in the game – I may have been singing a different tune this morning. The good news is, it’s only the third game of the season and we still have a lot left in us. We’re in it to win it.

Way to go Noles. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last night we headed over to my friend Callie’s apartment to cheer the Seminoles on with mini athlete.

Is he not the cutest FSU fan you’ve ever seen?!?!

There was a delicious spread of hamburgers, corn casserole, fresh fruit, chips, and dip to nibble on during the game.

I brought the black bean salad, but fell in love with the corn casserole. I went back for seconds and thirds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We weren’t just there to cheer on the Seminoles, we had a birthday to celebrate as well!

Callie’s husband turned the big 2-9 yesterday. Happy Birthday, Nate!

Chocolate-Chocolate cake was enjoyed by all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Late game = late night.

Derek and I crashed as soon as we got back to the condo and I didn’t move until the alarm went off at 7:00.

This morning I took Maddie out for a 4 mile run around the neighborhood. It was my way of apologizing for leaving her home alone the majority of yesterday. She’s currently passed out on my lap, so I’ll take that as a sign she accepts my apologies. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is a lazy day. That laziness begins on the couch with a marathon of Four Weddings.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

I can say this — fans in Tallahassee last night were some of the nicest I’ve seen outside of Nebraska. (UNL has the nicest fans in the NCAA, hands down. There is no competition there. They are sorely missed in the Big XII.) It’s rare to come into a stadium for a game that hyped and actually have people shake your hand and be gracious afterwards, but for the most part, that’s exactly what happened.

FSU’s got a good future ahead of them — your freshman QB had a fantastic night, and the rest of your receiving corps is young, but very, very talented. Experience like yesterday can only help. The next couple of years are going to be GOOD ones for the Seminoles.

Eh. Not a good football Saturday for me either… Michigan State, Ohio State, and Bowling Green all lost… ๐Ÿ™

11 Michelle @ Crazy*Running*Legs September 18, 2011 at 12:48 pm

I think my little Nole fans are cuter (I’m biased, of course!), but Callie little guy is adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, I love Seminole families! (again, biased)

I was sleeping during the game – but I hear my husband screaming at the TV and UGH! It was a valiant effort though – and they are a WORTHY opponent. I’m so excited that FSU football is BACK! You missed on the heydays – right?

Aww, what a cute little Nole fan! ๐Ÿ™‚ Such an adorable picture!

I hope that EJ Manuel is okay! We thought that you guys had a W within your sights as well. And then, bam, turnover! Oh, well you did lose to the #1 team in the country! And played well doing it.

I think I need to send some orange and blue down to the little FSU fan. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aw, who am I kidding? Even the dire heart Gator fan in me thinks Callie’s little boy is adorable, even in garnet and gold. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Argh, I’m still upset we lost. I’m proud that it was a close game but it still stings a little no doubt. I’m hoping the rest of the season goes well & we have a great showing this year ๐Ÿ™‚
