I Love a Good College Football Tailgate

It's been a while since I've attended a college football game. During my days at BYU, a Saturday afternoon in the Fall was best spent at LaVell Edwards Field. I miss those Saturday afternoons.

So when DC friends invited me to join them for the Penn State vs Indiana football game at FedEx Field (where the NFL's Washington Redskins play), I jumped at the chance.
We played cornhole/tailgate toss, barbequed, and chatted before the game. I met lots of new friends -- mostly Penn State fans.
Once inside, we got to see Penn State dominate an overwhelmed Indiana team.
And even though it was a lopsided game, the collegiate football experience provides such a fun atmosphere and more excitement than any of the NFL games I've attended recently.
Our group cheered on the Nittany Lions and applauded the futile, yet valiant, Hoosier efforts.
