I told my sister today during our excursion to the MSU football game that the one thing I really miss about living outside the US was attending sports games. My family has always played or watched sports, and its been such a part of my life since I was young. Going to Detroit Tiger, Piston, Red Wing, and Lions games were highlights for me. Then in college all my ASU games became a staple…I even went to a few Phoenix Coyotes and Suns games while in Arizona. For anyone who is a sports fan, going to live games are just so much more than watching them on TV.
So, when my mom called up and said she had scored 2 free tickets to the MSU football game this afternoon, I couldn’t turn it down. No….MSU is not my team, but since I went out of state to Arizona State for college, I feel like I have free reign on rooting for all the Michigan teams without betraying my own (I equally root for U of M as well). My sister and I went and had a great time. The seats weren’t the closest, but we could see just fine. (I think I got too spoiled by sitting right on the sidelines at ASU) I’m just glad I had an opportunity to go to a game before I have to leave again…..Go MSU!!! (by the way, they won 42 to 10)
