Friday Sinema – Country Nation and Football

It’s time for college football! My OSU Cowboys played last night. They won. Yay! So, to celebrate…

Brad Paisley’s new song and his video homage to college mascots is made of awesome so of course I had to share!

Who are you cheering for this season? This is a long, holiday weekend in the states. Enjoy yourselves but stay safe!

  1. Ahem. When you mentioned on my blog yesterday that your team was playing some little unknown team, you neglected to mention it was CMU. My oldest brother played for CMU way back in the long ago. So, yeah, I was rooting for the Chippewas. Didn’t think they’d beat your guys, but hey, had to do it. And we were joking about all those Okies in Mt. Pleasant, MI – what a culture shock it must’ve been been (for the residents and for the Okies).

    Of course, my Wolverines lost. Looks like another season of cringing is ahead for me.

    Yay for Labor Day! I won’t be doing anything different, but it means the weekenders / summer people will go home and stop hogging the DSL bandwidth. =o)

      Well, it might be an awesome school, especially since your bro played there, but…I’d never heard of the Chippewas. Are they getting flack about the Indian name or are they like the Florida Seminoles–have tribal permission? Personally, I think all that brouhaha is blown out of proportion but that’s just this Indian’s opinion. And hey, they beat the spread. We were supposed to win by like 20 points or something. I have the feeling this is going to be an ugly year for the Pokes, too. *sigh* Hang in there this weekend! And then celebrate things getting back to normal!!!

      • LOL, I think CMU is traditionally known as a party school. I just always root for Michigan teams – except when they’re against actual Michigan. I hadn’t heard about any flack, but Michiganders are pretty proud of the Chippewas (the tribe, not the team) if I remember correctly, so anyone giving flack would be soundly thumped. Yeah, they’ve had much better teams the last few years or so. I think they even got a minor bowl game or two. So don’t be too sad about the point spread. They’re better than they seem.

    That is one kick-ass video. I think I saw the Oregon Ducks in there.

  3. Ok, so football is the only sport I will sit down to watch. It reminds me of all the things I like most about fall and it brings up memories of Thanksgiving. Even when I’m not watching, I love to just hear it on in the background. But alas, I do not follow any college teams.
    PS: love the bulldog refs 😉
