What Fall Means To Me!
It's that time of year again, when most people are busy with back to school shopping, enrolling in school and getting back into the routine of things. Some are perhaps preparing for the Tangipahoa Parish Fair, which will be here before we know it. Holiday events and planning are beginning, I am already seeing Fall and Halloween items appearing on our store shelves. Then there is that one thing that fall brings to so many all across America. It has been missing from our lives for six long months and we are hungry for it. The one thing that brings hundreds, even thousands of us together. Yes, you guessed it FOOTBALL. Football season is upon us and if you are like me you are so ready for it. Sure for most players and coaches it is football all year long as they prepare their bodies and teams for the fall gridiron. But, for us fans, it is finally back and we are pumped.
I don't know about you, but I have always been a die hard fan of those Friday night lights. There is wave of electricity that runs through you when your team burst through that goal post sign with the roar of the crowd and the band playing that "fight song". Oh how that "fight song" ignites the crowd. I can tell you that I have lived in many areas of our country and attended high school games in these places, but there is no comparison to Friday nights in the south. Especially in Louisiana where football runs in our veins. In my day the entire town was shutdown, because everyone was at a game. Nothing compares to the excitement and talent on those fields. These games are also the biggest social events of the year, so you better be there or you might miss something.
