a beautiful day for football

this past weekend, I spent Saturday with my father in East Lansing watching the afternoon football game at Michigan State University.  for the 1st Saturday in November, the weather was remarkably pleasant – nice  and sunny, with just a bit of a nip to the fall breeze.  the game was a little closer than I would have liked, but the Spartans were triumphant, and a win is a win.  I didn’t snap any photos during the game, but I got this great shot of the Armed Forces soldiers displaying a giant American flag during the singing of the national anthem.

for the half-time show, the Spartan Marching Band played parts of songs from the musical Les Miserables, which is celebrating it’s 25th year in production, and will be in East Lansing at the Wharton Center in early April.  they closed out half-time with the song “One Day More”.

oh yeah, Michigan State won the game, and there was much rejoicing. 🙂

    On the banks of the Red Cedar,
    There’s a school that’s known to all;
    Its specialty is farming,
    And those farmers play football;
    Aggie teams are never beaten,
    All through the game they’ll fight;
    Fight for the only colors:
    Green and White.
    Smash right through that line of blue,
    Watch the points keep growing.
    Aggie teams are bound to win,
    They’re fighting with a vim!
    Rah! Rah! Rah!
    Michigan is weakening,
    We’re going to win this game.
    Fight! Fight! Rah! Team, Fight!
    Victory for M.A.C.!
