# football 2014

We’re halfway through USU’s home games for the season and I haven’t written one word about it! It’s either a massive miracle or a massive failure. The hoards of photos have sat untouched on my computer…until now.

Here are some highlights from the first two games. (Homecoming will get its own post soon.)

First game: USU v. Idaho State

Stadium

I forgot how gorgeous the stadium views are from the top. I sat near the press box, waiting for pre-game to start while soaking up the beautiful sunshine and mountains. Click on the pic to see its full glory.

Everyone was elated to have our star quarterback, Chuckie Keeton, back on the field after being injured last year. This poster said it all.

Sitting near the band has its action-shot perks:

I took this picture because the night before the game Joe and I watched “Dear Mr. Watterson” and relived our childhood obsession with Calvin and Hobbes. Seeing this kid reading it rather than (mostly) watching the game made my day.

First game’s half-time show: Music from Harry Potter (hence the scar below), Game of Thrones, and Gladiator

The second game: USU v. Wakeforest

Here’s lookin’ at you, Big Blue.

The team was led out onto the field by USU’s youngest fans. So hilarious to watch.

Did I mention it was a White-Out game and I wore black? Yeah.

And I sat in the student section and had to stand the entire game? Where’s my Old Lady Card?

When we were at CCM, we had to perform in these “distraction classes” to test our focus. I consider this Joe’s new distraction class:

Funny side story: Joe was always a champ at those classes, but guess who got him to break?…. Me…with a blood-curling scream during his quiet excerpt. It was epic.

GoPro is not just for zip-lining it seems:

  1. Marci, your photography is amazing. Seriously. And, your captioning superb. Joe’s new distraction class has got nothing on your blood-curdling scream I’m sure. Band GoPro. Yessss. I wish they had existed when I was drum major. I would have found a way to attach that thing directly to my lapel and recorded my hands waving around in the foreground while the band marching scurried about in the background.
