What I Learned: Attending a Football Game

I'm not a real sporty girl.
Until this weekend, I had only been to one football game in my whole life, and it was my cousin's high school game about 8 years ago, and I wore heels. And was ridiculed. 
However, I somewhat redeemed my anti-sporticism this weekend and attended a football game at my alma mater!

Here's What I Learned:
  • Always carry a comb
  • Sports transcend people's political beliefs
  • Pre-Gaming & Tailgating are awesome
  • There are no stupid questions
  • Sports are complicated
  • The universe needs to come up with cooler band uniforms
  • Football moms love kettle corn
  • It makes sense why college stadiums don't sell beer
  • Rivalries run deep
  • If you need to get amped up, turn to Bon Jovi
  • Bring Binoculars
  • You know you've found true love when your honey will wait next to you in a crazy long sports arena restroom line
  • There was a whole world in college I was totally oblivious to
  • Cotton Candy is a must
  • Sports minutes are longer than regular minutes
  • Anything can happen
  • Rental seat cushions are totally worth it
  • Always carry cash
  • Poor sportsmanship is never an attractive quality
  • Chanting is fun
  • Traditions are important
  • Keep your chin up
  • No one can resist Gangam Style 
  • You can have a lot of fun participating in something you don't totally understand
