GET UP, IT’S GAME DAY! Today is the first home game for my Clemson Tigers in Death Valley; today is also my first time watching a home game at my home…as an alumni. I would give anything to go back and experience that first game as a freshman. That video doesn’t do the intense feelings (and the even more intense range of emotions) justice. Watching the team run down the hill onto their turf, cheering so loudly you lose your voice, the sound of fans yelling and crowd-pumping music ringing in your ears, those are the things I crave to relive today.
I would give anything to be back in those stands rooting for the best college and the best football team—and my second family.
