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 losing streak.

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, here, here, and here.

  • This weekend Richelle and I went to Henderson State to see David. It is a whole 300 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 minutes.

  • 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 in town.

  • 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 boil. Last 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.

  • 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.
