MSU Eight and Oh

Oh my goodness!

I only watched the last 5 minutes of the game and I thought my stomach was going to flip over.

My friend Missy and I were eating lunch and were seated in the upstairs section.  From where we sat we could see the little bar area.  People would run in there, stay a few minutes, cheer or groan and then go back to their seats. 

Then the crowd got a little larger and they just weren't rushing back to their seats, they were staying.

Missy and I finished our meal and we decided to go into the bar as well and see the end of the game. 

Michigan State was behind when we first arrived in the bar to watch the televised heart attack. 

I can barely breathe when it gets down to the last few minutes.

This was no exception.

Then MSU scores a touchdown!

Oh My Goodness, we were ahead!

In the end my Spartans scored 21 points in the final quarter to win their 8th straight game this season.

35 - 27 was the final score.  MSU beat Northwestern. 

My friend Keetha was probably having heart palpatations - her Badgers beat Iowa by one.  Oy!!  That's a close one!!

I have loved loved loved being in East Lansing the past few weeks.  Saturdays have just been electric around here.

Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Hey now - Keetha's team won because my team couldn't get its special teams together. Next up for Iowa is...Michigan State. Good luck to all!

There is nothing more exciting then the end of a game like that.
Especially when you win!

Yes - - - I thought for the LONGEST time that your Spartys were going to be "demised" by those Wildcats!!!! They were behind the entire game until the very end!!!

Yes - - - I was having a stroke over my own Badgers. And, I was watching THAT game with an Iowa fan!

Oh dear, dear, dear 42N. Keetha's team won because they won!!! We could start listing all kinds of factors involved - - - but we agreed earlier, that for that particular day, on that particular field, and under those particular conditions the BEST team would win.

For yesterday, that was MY team, and I feel CONFIDENT that at other times when we meet on the gridiron of battle, it will be your team at least for some of them.
