Go Greyhounds!


On Friday I attended an Atascadero High School CIF football game. It was great. As I sat there overlooking the sea of orange, I was overwhelmed by a flood of memories and had to do some breathing excises to get back to normal. The crisp night air was refreshing, and I could imagine myself in a polyester band uniform and Brandon on the field, being the super hott star player that he was.

I love that they are still selling "game ball tickets," I love that the "Four" tradition is alive and well, I love the camaraderie of the fans as they all sit on bright orange bleachers, I love the fear of accidentally dropping anything under the bleachers, and I love that for some reason there are a million cheerleaders. (I didn't think they usually allowed that many. Therefore, the picture above is of the amazing amount of cheerleaders, so please take note.The picture also doesn't quite capture the orangey-ness that is an Atascadero High School football game, so use your imagination.) Unfortunately those cheerleaders did not do my favorite "Go Bananas," or "Sack that Quarterback: Defense, make contact!" I'm still upset by it, really.

That *is* an excessive amount of cheerleaders. My favorite cheer of high school was the "B-R B-R B-R-E-A O-L O-L I-N-D-A B-R-E-A-O-L-I-N-D-A LET'S GO!" Ah, memories.

It would have been great to see Brandon as the super ho'double t' player. Oh how I wish I could go back in time to see it. Brandon just taught me a couple of the cheers. I can see why you were upset to not see "Go Bananas". Everyone loves a good spin move.
