We are the boys from old Florida
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest
Of any old state down our way
We are all strong for old Florida
Down where the old gators play
In all kinds of weather
We’ll all stick together
this is what i’ll be singing at approximately 1030pm tonight. no i never went to the university of Florida but if i didn’t tell you that you would probably think i did. im die hard. no doubt about it.
i love college football. i love that every game counts. i love that this game could be the game that we silence all doubters. i love how we can win the path to the championship here. or we can lose it. or that nothing happens. the gravity each week brings not only for my team but the implications of the teams around us makes watching the key games of the week that much more exciting. i love how delusional Gator fans can be about being the undoubted favorites to win the national championship each and every year. regardless of 1 loss, 2 loss, heck maybe even 3? sometimes the hoping makes it even that much funner to watch. that needing the 7 teams ranked ahead of you to lose. the trash talking. rooting for a team you absolutely hate one week, and hating their guts passionately the following week. college football. it doesn’t get much more chaotic.
i love it. its game day. game on. Go Gators
