Last Saturday, I was at my very first football game. We went to see the Clemson Tigers play Miami.
The team colors of the Tigers are orange and purple... In clothing, orange was predominant.
So far, I have only seen football games on TV and only heard about "tailgating", but really didn't have a clue what it was all about.
We also saw the band practice.
This is a view over one of the tailgaiting areas from the stadium.
The stadium at Clemson seats around 80,000 people and it was SOLD out!
We were all the way up (second to last row) and could see to Lake Hartwell. Saturday was also a really hot day and we got slow roasted on the stands.
Celebrations after a touchdown for Clemson.
During half-time, the band performed on the field with choreography.
In the end Clemson lost. But all in all it was a good day with a great group of people, enjoying the last warm days of summer.
Would I go back? Tailgating maybe, but the game... Seriously, I don't have the patience to watch sports for 4 hours... Granted, people tell me, that the game dragged along unusually long.
So long! ;-)
