College Football Season Has Officially Begun…

College Football Season Has Officially Begun…

I find myself, today, looking up the football schedule for the University of South Carolina. We’ve always been a LSU family because H went to school there. It doesn’t hurt that I’m from Louisiana.

Then…Andrew decided to go to Troy State University to pursue his college career. That’s when he became a part of The Sound Of The South marching with their percussion section. Of course, we had to include Troy on our football watching schedule. We began following the games on TV and attending all the home games in person since we were only two hours away. What fun we had!

After graduation Andrew went on to grad school at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. There was no football team, so no marching band. We witnessed a lot of concerts through live video which was great because commuting to Tennessee was not an option.

We also continued watching LSU football and kept Troy on our list because of their great marching band.

Andrew is now at the University of South Carolina in pursuit of his doctorate and working as a Graduate assistant with the percussion section of their marching band. He won’t be performing this time, but I wouldn’t forgive myself if I missed that chance of a small glimpse of him at a game.

My TV is set to record because H is teaching lessons this afternoon. LSU plays tonight so I guess college football season and marching band has begun!

Maybe I can “pretend” to watch tonight while I read. After all, There is no chance I’ll get a glimpse of Andrew while watching LSU.

I will not “pretend” that I watch football for the sport. It’s all about the marching band…
