As many of you know, college football season is back. Our own UCF Knights played their season opener last night, narrowly losing by 1 point to FIU. In our family, football is more of a religion than a pastime. We anxiously wait all spring for the countdowns to begin. We pre-order new gear to wear, proudly hang flags on the cars and in the front yard, and plan trips to cheer our teams to victory.
This weekend is chocked full of opening college football games. Both the Florida Gators and the Florida State Seminoles play on Saturday night. There will be a Garnet & Gold Watch Party at Wall Street. While their game doesn’t start until 8PM the festivities at Wall Street will commence promptly at noon, as any good tailgate would. The Gators watch party will be hosted at the Wildside Bar & Grill on Washington St. in Thornton park. If Florida teams aren’t your thing, have no fear (you’re not alone!). There are plenty of other notable games like Texas vs. Notre Dame, Wisconsin vs. Alabama or BYU vs. Nebraska.
On this long Labor Day weekend I encourage you to get out, socialize, watch some football and throw back a few cold ones. College Football season is finally here!
