I love College Football! It’s the one and only sport (well besides cheerleading competitions!!) that I will sit down and watch! Every Saturday during football season, you can find me (at least at some point during the day) watching a game. I will watch anyone and love a good underdog team that is expected not to win. But you can definitely find me parked in front of the television when the University of South Carolina Gamecocks are playing!
In addition to watching them on TV, I have to go to at least a few games during the season because there is just nothing like being in Williams Brice Stadium and watching my team take the field. And at least one game, I must attend with my sister! We went to college at USC and were there at the same time so it is a tradition!
Last weekend, the Gamecocks played the Florida Gators, a team that is always a fierce competitor. And as much as the game itself is important, the fashion is equally important! Dressing up for a Football game may seem odd to some but to anyone in the SEC or South for that matter, you totally understand!
I remember the first time I went to a Purdue game in Indiana (my husband’s alma mater). I searched for something black and gold and finally settled on a skirt, tights and a dressy top. The looks I got from all the fans dressed in jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers was priceless. Even with the looks, I was never able to not dress up a little for games. It’s kind of like the rule don’t wear white after labor day….I know it is totally accepted now but I still can’t bring myself to do it!
So for the Gamecock vs. Florida game, I searched for the perfect outfit in my school’s colors and settled on garnet coated jeans and a black and white python printed top. I think the outfit totally sent good luck to the team because we won!! Go Gamecocks!!
