State winning weekend!!

I graduated from Michigan State and I love my Spartans. Call me ye of little faith, but I did not expect them to beat U of M this year. But as the game played out, we were in the lead. It was so exciting...but Garth is NOT a State fan (gasp, I know!) and he was not happy. I don't fully understand this because Garth did not go to U of M, so shouldn't he support his wife who went to State? I blame it on our friend Chris, who took Garth to a U of M game last year. That's when he turned into the Wolverine fan.
I digress. So the game ties and we go to overtime. My heart is racing. I am tense. I stressed out. This is the exact reason I do not watch football. Next to me, Garth is moving the coffee table and all "I'm making room for my victory dance."
"You're not even from this country!" I snapped back.
Garth laughs, and we turn back to the game. I can hardly stand the suspense. Come on! We were winning most of the game, whyyyyyy are we in overtime now?!
And then it happens. We score and win the game. We beat Michigan two years in a row, which hasn't happened in over 40 years! After pouring rain most of the game, the sun comes out.
"Well look at that! The sun is finally out. I guess God is a Michigan State fan." This proud Spartan fan says.

Oh, now that's just mean! How could route against your team?

I wish my team would've have pulled out the win yesterday, but alas, they could not. It was a very sad evening.

Awesome! Go State! It was an exciting day :)

I thought they were going to blow it... in the 4th, but they didn't! :)

It was a huge win.

We're both Spartan fans here... although the same can't be said for hockey, baseball and basketball.

I have a new respect for Garth :) Especially if he was able to become a Michigan fan last year of all seasons!
Adam went to the game but I had to stay back in Illinois for work and we didn't get the game here :( It was on one of the overflow channels that we don't get because the Big Ten Network decided to air the Northwestern game instead. ARG!
I was so excited when I heard about our comeback.. only to be let down by the conclusion... oh well, we're still doing way better than last year!
Congrats!

Man - I watched that game and it was a nail bitter for sure! Glad your team pulled it off :)

...unlike my not-so-good Ags.

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

haha that's hilarious! So glad your team pulled it off! Thankfully the hubby and I have settled most of our cheering discrepancies and for the sports where we are die hard fans, we root for the same team. I could see it getting ugly otherwise. :) For the teams we don't care about we like to make bets against each other....though that can make it become extra intense!
