The fifteen week season kicks off today. I will be watching my Alma Mater, Florida State take on Louisiana Monroe this afternoon. Sadly, this is the first season in four years I won't be there. Football is an all American tradition that ignites the spirit of comradery among fellow fans and creates a divide between friends who pull for the opposing team. For me, sitting in Doak Campbell stadium for the first time was pretty incredible. It was one of those times you realize you are a part of something so much bigger than yourself. My favorite part of the game is the beginning. The sea of fans in their game day best begin to clap, chop, holler and cheer as Cheif Osceola rides out on Renegade with his lit spear. As he makes his way to the middle of the field, he pulls back on the horse and throws the spear on to the field. Naturally, the crowd goes crazy. The game has begun.
