Beat Memphis's ass last night! Definately the best game this season. We
took a huge pep band, about 100 strong. I played so hard and screamed so much
that my lip is a little swollen and I can barely talk today. So now MSU is on
a mighty two game winning streak and broke its eight or nine game road trip

Just decided that the ole news page was getting too big so I archived the
past year or so.
In a few hours we will be on our way to Memphis. Basically if MSU is going
to win anymore games, this is going to have to be one of them.

- Had a decent party this weekend. Lots of people showed up :) Wheee fun.
Sadly we ended up with an extra party ball. It will just have to wait 2 weeks
until Tony's birthday. The best from
all of the pictures are Waddle's "happy" pics,

- This weekend Richelle and I went to Henderson State to see David. It is a
miles away from Starkvegas so it took a while. I made great time in Mississippi
because it was a straight shot across on highway 82. When I got to Arkansas,
the roads turned to crap. We did pretty good though, in one of the little
towns we got off on a highway 273 that was not even on our map. Luckily it
ran back into the road we were supposed to be on. David's dorm is the nicest
dorm I have ever seen. Besides the tiny bathroom, the actual design and
materials used are way better than my apartment. The greatest thing is that
he has classes in the same building. David is pledging Phi Mu Alpha and I went
with him to a singing practice before the game. Their stadium is nice but
rather small compared to stadiums that I normally see. I think it is actually
smaller than Natchez High's statium. It is really neat though, it is in a
bowl shaped depression and the stands are on each side of the depression.
I think that their band is far better playing band than MSU's. Their pregame
show is not too impressive and they do not play much at all in the stands,
but their halftime show is the best show I have ever seen in person. Henderson
even managed to win the football game even after a fumbled punt almost lost
it for them. Both bands have the third quarter off so the Phi Mu Alpha chapters
from each got together and sang a few songs. The guys from Henderson had asked
me to sing so I got to participate too. David introduced me to their band
director and it turns out that he is a Sinfonian too and we talked for a few

- I am officially working at ISIP
again. Loads of fun. More tutorials!!!
- Yep, Auburn kicked our ass last week. I can only hope that this season
will not be quite as crappy as last year.
- Put new tires on my car this past weekend. Wheeee, the wobble when I stop
is gone. I had gotten so used to it that it is wierd to drive my car now. At
least my mileage should be a little better even though I was already getting 17

- It has been a really long summer. Thankfully it is football season again.
That gives us a reason to have a party.

- I went home this past weekend. Saw Brumfield. Wheee. Saw Angela Davis for
a while. Joey Geter even showed up at the NHS graduation. I sat with Melissa
Phillips at graduation; I had not seen her since my graduation. I even saw
Leighton Edwards who I have only seen like once since graduation.

- Super bulldog weekend was awesome. College Park had its annual crawfish
year sucked but this one was great. There was an interesting wet tshirt
contest, sorry I have no pics. Saturday night we saw Starsailor play a free
concert outside the Hump and they were really great. They have a nice
pre OK Computer Radiohead sound.

See it here.

- So back to the Lubbock trip. We did not do much on Friday if I remember
correctly, until the game. It was great kicking Boston College's ass that
night. I ate at an IHOP for the first time after the game. I got an
"International Burrito" and was expecting a reasonable sized burrito. But what
I got was a huge monstrosity of a meal. On Saturday a few of us ate
breakfast/lunch at a Mexican place close to the hotel. Then we went and watched
part of the team's practice. That night we ate at a huge steakhouse that was
outside of Lubbock. I was not really impressed with Texas steak. I have had
much better steak cooked in Mississippi and for way less money. Later that
night we went back to the Depot District. I spent most of my time in Bleachers
because I was not 21. Sunday morning everyone got up and got packed. Then we
were bussed back to Bleachers to watch the men's game being played in Dallas.
It was depressing for most of the way but was a little better at the end.
So we went back to the hotel to finish packing and got ready for the game.
It was fun being at the game even though we lost. Thousands of Texas Tech
fans are scary. The band played and cheered our asses off because there might
have been 10 more MSU fans there who were not on the team, in the band, or
a cheerleader. Considering that we were outnumbered about 500 to 1, the Texas
Tech people were really civil to us, very different from LSU where you have
to be an asshole to be a fan. When the band made it back to the bus, we loaded
up our stuff and then made a tunnel and cheered the players and trainers as
they came out in small groups. We were even nice and cheered the cheerleaders.
Coach Fanning was the last one out and when she came out, she hugged every
one of us who was in the tunnel. It was really nice. So from there we were
bussed back to the plane, flew home to GTR at about 2 AM, got bussed back to
Starkvegas (where there are trees, green grass, and hills), and sorted out
our luggage so that we could go sleep.
