Gooooo Dayton Flyers!

10.20.2010Today, I experienced my very first Dayton Flyers football game! Yes, it was about 90 degrees out, even though it’s September, but it was a ton of fun! I could not believe how much school spirit there was!! There was not one person in the stands wearing a color other than red, white, or blue. I mean EVERYONE was in UD attire! My one friend and I knew a few of the guys on the team, so it was really cool to finally see them play. And, their uniforms looked great! I was a little worried that they would look like the American flag, since our colors are red, white, and blue. But, they were really tasteful. It was interesting because they gave out free pizzas to the most spirited fans, which was comical to watch as people went crazy for a pizza. I also enjoyed watching the cheerleaders flip and cheer and do all kinds of crazy stunts—they also had tasteful uniforms, which I like to see.

The best part of the game was that WE WON!!! At first, we were winning by a lot. I mean, we were winning by so much that a lot of people were leaving thinking that we had this game in the bag. But, after halftime the other team was really catching up to us, and thatÂ’s when it became a gripping game. I think thatÂ’s the best, when itÂ’s a neck in neck game and you can no longer tell which team is going to win. But, in the end, we did it, which was amazing! IÂ’m definitely going to go to their next game and cheer them on!
