On the Banks of the Red Cedar

It’s trash talk time, folks. This weekend my Michigan State Spartans will drag the university of michigan wolverweenies all over the football field. It’s time to tailgate (even if only virtually), so I’m double checking my list to make sure I’m ready for tomorrow.

* Pom poms? Check

* Green hoodie with white logos? Check

* Repertoire of michigan jokes? Check

Q: Do you know why the university of michigan football team should change its name to the “Opossums”?
A: Because they play dead at home and get killed on the road.

* MSU Fight Song practiced, perfected, and ready to sing upon the first touchdown? Check

Here are the lyrics, in case you’re in a bind and can’t watch the video:

Michigan State University Fight Song

On the banks of the Red Cedar,
There’s a school that’s known to all;
Its specialty is winning,
And those Spartans play good ball;
Spartan teams are never beaten,
All through the game they’ll fight;
Fight for the only colors,
Green and White.
Go right through for MSU,
Watch the points keep growing.
Spartan teams are bound to win,
They’re fighting with a vim.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
See their team is weakening,
We’re going to win this game.
Fight! Fight! Rah! Team, Fight!
Victory for MSU.

* Victory dance at the ready? Check

Alright. Time to simmer the chili, grill the brats, and chill the beer.

  1. I don’t really care who wins this game, but it sounds like you are prepared. And given my friendship with you and the fact that my son’s Boy Scout patrol is named the Spartans, I’ll throw my cheering behind your team. Go MSU!
