Football is a huge deal in Stillwater. OSU has a pretty good football team. Timm and I thought it would be a good idea to get season tickets. The first game was Saturday night. OSU played the Louisianna Cajuns. We had people over before the game to hang out and do some in-house tailgating. We happen to live about a block away from the stadium, so it is really convenient. Otherwise parking is craziness. The game started at 6, so we left at about 5. There had been a steady stream of orange shirts walking past the house towards the stadium for the past few hours.
Here’s what it looked like when we were outside the stadium.
Inside it looked more like this. They had the band playing music and getting everyone pumped up.
They made an announcement later that there were something like 55,384 people in attendance. It was the most people they have had for the first game of the season.
Whenever there was a touchdown they would shoot off a cannon and a horse would come galloping onto the field with the OSU cowboys flags flying behind.
The ROTC group would also do as many pushups as point that OSU had. The score ended up as 61 to 34, so they did quite a few pushups.
We had a great time and I am definitely looking forward to going to more games…especailly the OU game.
