For the CSU Rams!
No, I'm not turning into a football fan, but hey, hometown stuff and all.
The only reason I mention it is I heard some racket coming from outside, and stepped to hear quite a fireworks display. It was coming from the North-Northwest, and while I could see the flashes and hear them, it was all low-level stuff.
The only thing up that way is CSU, so I wondered if maybe it was homecoming weekend for them. A quick check of the schedule shows that yep, this is Homecoming Weekend, with all the traditions that go with it in the Midwest.
Homecoming was a Big Deal when I was in high-school, but not so much at the community college I went to for two years after high-school. The Junior College football team was pretty mediocre, and with most students staying a maximum of two years, it was hard to build any kind of momentum.
I'm just glad I wasn't planning on heading up that way tonight, as I'll bet the students are having quite a celebration of it.
Good to see young people upholding traditions here in Free America.....
