Just to remenisce. With all the talk about traditions, I started thinking about the ones I remember...
Here are a few:
Lining up a couple hours before the gates open so me and my best friend can get seats for our wives when they arrived just before game time.
Sitting in the student section early, warming in the sun on a saturday afternoon, and hearing the first notes of March Glorioso from the Going Band.
Watching the Masked Raider lead the team onto the field in a full gallop.
Watching the Going Band take to the field...at a full gallop...that is still a great entry for a marching band.
After each score, watching the Masked Raider launch into a full gallop, spurned by a loud report for the Army ROTC field howitzer, on a full round of the track encircling the football field.
