Fight On!, University of Southern California

This past Saturday, I had the awesome opportunity to attend the USC vs. Washington State game at the Coliseum. Heather was generous enough to give her season tickets to Jennie and I, so she and her father could hang out with his friend who also has season tickets. There is something about going onto the USC campus and then going to the game that gets me all charged up for the fall season. I love it. I always wanted to go to USC, but God had other plans for me. I don't know a whole lot about football, unlike my two friends in the picture below who bleed cardinal and gold but I LOVE football season. Luckily, they share all of the inside tips and plays with me.
Here is the star of this season, Matt Barkley, who already has a Wikipedia page. We waited around for the Trojan walk where all of the players and coaches go into the Coliseum and get cheered on by their loyal fans.
Our good friends from church, whose family has been die hard USC fans and season ticket holders since the late 1920's. Dave and Karen, the greatest tailgaters around.
Jennie is always up for a challenge when it comes to football and it looks as though Dave gave her a run for her money, or was it the other way around. Karen?
There is a special place in my heart for the band, as I played the clarinet all through Junior High School and High School. The benefit of seeing a USC game in person....the half time show! Below is actually what the band did before the game which was just as good as a half time show.
My favorite image of the night. If you are a USC fan, you know that this is part of your livelihood...to Fight On.
The final score. It was a great game, but it seemed like just another game. Not a lot of excitement but a great win. Please say a prayer for USC running back Stafon Johnson, who was injured on Monday during his weight training practice and had emergency surgery. You can read more about it on this blog.  
 
Thank you Heather for the awesome tickets!
