Friday Night Lights!!!

It's football season again! Hooray!!! Okay, you may have heard of this, or maybe you haven't but we folks down here in the south love our friday night football!(Not to say anyone anywhere else doesn't). Sometimes we all just go gaga over it. So, since my honey is a teacher and coach(basketball, not football) we moseyed on over for our 1st home game!

We played our biggest rival who we haven't won a game against in probably over 5 years. Let me tell you there was electricity in the air. Everyone had on their gold and black and was looking fired up. The concession stand was a cooking and the bleachers filled right up. We probably had close to a couple of thousand fans.
The fans and cheerleaders waiting on those Panthers to come running through!
Go Panthers Go!!!The Panthers band was getting down! Remember this is small-town America. To be so small, they do a great job rousing up the crowd.
Yeah!!! We win!! Cow bells were a ringing and fog horns were going off! I screamed so much I'm surprised I didn't wake up hoarse. What a great way to spend a Friday night!

Sounds like you had a good time. I grew up in a small town in Texas and Friday night football games at our HS stadium were the thing to do.

We live in a little town and I grew up in a little town in Tennessee and I love the Friday night games. Congratulations on your win! I know what a great feeling that is.

Oh the Friday night football games we have gone to! (You know high school football in Texas!) We live in the "burbs" of Dallas, so Friday night is football night in the fall. We haven't gone in years, since our children left, but I sure do have lots of wonderful memories of that time.
Congrats on your win..and thanks for reminding me of such special times in my life.

Pgl, Eileen, Meadowview-I'm glad to know you all know how exciting high school football is. I can imagine in TN and TX football fever is just as crazy as it is here.

Susie,
Up here in Ohio, Friday football is also a huge event. Packed stadiums, wide spread coverage on t.v. news, and in the papers. I haven't been to one in years but I can hear the fireworks from my house when our team gets a touchdown.

Flydragon-Fireworks with touchdowns!?! That's fantastic! What a great way to show support for the team!!!
