3 at last! 3 at last!
Hello Eagle faithful! We are around 3 hours out from our
destination of Denver, CO. I am showing it is almost 5 A.M. where you all are
and 3 A.M. here on the cool bus, and we have one sleepy bus! We stopped at our
last rest stop until we arrive, and let me tell you, people out west must not
go to the bathroom much because the amount of stalls in these places keeps on
shrinking! But if that is our only complaint I have heard so far we are doing
I have to admit, this is the first time I have traveled by
bus this far west, I figured it couldn’t get anymore boring than Illinois but I
was wrong (apologies to my Illinois friends)! I once heard a joke about a
Kansas man who watched his dog run away for days because it’s so flat here, I
no longer think it’s a joke but a very true statement! We did a poll of our
students to see who brought any good luck charms with them and also asked if
anyone had any pre-game rituals they wanted to share. You know how some of
these super-fans get! My sister will only watch her beloved alma mater while
wearing an odd number of paraphernalia, I know one man who will start out with
one jersey on and if he feels it isn’t working he will change into another one
or take it off part way through the game. So far we have seen only one brave
soul on this bus willing to share that his lucky charm is his #35 MSU jersey,
and we all know who he is a fan of!!!!
We have one amazing group of students on this bus, I don’t
mean to brag but these students have been so fun! MSU has a way of bringing a
diverse population together and under the right circumstances they become a
small family. These students will remember this bus trip in a positive way for
years to come, I feel bad for those students who did not get to come experience
this. We now have some amazing bus drivers as well! We pulled into a gas
station in Kansas and picked up 2 MSU wearing bus drivers that excited these
students, and then the Dean freaked them out by wearing a pink bikini that I
have on video (it’s not pretty).
We are still struggling to load our video so hopefully we
can at least get our first one posted at the hotel. Keep checking back often
for all of the excitement!!
