Saturday morning, before the MSU football game, we attended the Pompom team family tailgate with Melissa. It was a beautiful day and a lovely morning spent on campus. There were around 100 team and family members in attendance and a delicious pot luck lunch was served.
After lunch, we were treated to a performance by the MSU Acafellas, an all male acapella group. They sang three songs, finishing with the MSU fight song, which the whole tailgate group joined in singing.
A fun part of any tailgate is a little friendly competition, between father and daughter. It was a perfect fall day.
Melissa and her roommate have been together all four years and are MSU Pompon teammates as well as friends. They were also pompon teammates in high school and seeing them together at all the senior year events is a little bittersweet. Time does go by so fast.
