We had the best day on the Michigan State campus on Saturday, with seemingly the whole state of Michigan in attendance as rivalry weekend came once again. You are either a MSU or a University of Michigan fan on game day and the air is filled with good natured insults as friendships and family ties are tested. We are a divided family, since Megan is a University of Michigan grad, in a family full of Spartans.
It was extremely crowded, with everyone fighting for space to set up their tents and tailgate spot, but the atmosphere was electric, with so many people having a great time. Everyone cheered when the sun finally came out, just before noon. Our brunch menu was fantastic, with made to order omelettes and cinnamon french toast. The platter of s'more brownies I made did not last long since everyone can't resist a little chocolate.
Melissa had the day off from her MSU Pompon team duties, so when she stopped by with some friends, we made sure to get some photos with my sister and brother in law for our annual family photo calendar.
Tailgating on Saturdays in the fall is one of my favorite things to do and rivalry weekend is the best weekend there is. You see so many friends all in one place and you never know who will stop by your tailgate. We even had the U.S. Senator from Michigan stop to chat and pose for pictures with us. I just like to sit in my chair until game time and soak in all the atmosphere.
And of course, we are there for the football game and it did not disappoint. MSU came away with a victory, is still ranked high in the polls and we are ready for our next tailgate and big game against Ohio State.
