So I’ve got a funny story for you on this lovely Monday. (Itz a short one, no worries.) When I was in college at Mizzou, my parents occasionally came up for football games. Well one particular afternoon, my mom was reading the big screen and asked if I’d ever been to, “Mutigers.” I hadn’t heard of it, so I peered in the direction she was looking and realized she was reading MUtigers (MU tigers) as one word.
My dad and I got quite the laugh and we still tease her to this day. (Love you, Mom!) Anyway, this past weekend Jonny and I went to Mizzou with our best friends Diana and Andy. Diana and I were people watching (aka paying really good attention to the football game) and Diana asked, “What’s O-B-E-Y?” Again, I was confused so I glanced in the direction where she was looking. I replied, “You mean ‘obey?’” Instantly, we busted out laughing as it was just one of those moments. So funny. Diana definitely won’t live that one down for quite some time.
As we headed to Mizzou, we packed our bags, filled the coolers, and attached the tiger tail.
A tiger tail is a must when driving to Columbia and we saw tons of other cars with them. We had such a fun day and night at Mizzou. Diana, Andy, and I all went to Mizzou for school and Jonny has always been a fan just being from St. Louis. Not only did the Tigers win, we had a blast, as always, with DiAndy. We had a wonderful dinner at Sophia’s followed by frozen custard at Andy’s. It was marvelous indeed!
Marvelous in my Monday hosted by Healthy Diva Life!
Itz awesome being in Columbia on game days because literally 99.9% of the people are sporting their black and gold. The only thing that’s different now compared to when we went to Mizzou, is that now a lot of people get really dressed up for games. Like, heels or boots and dresses, something we would have never worn to a football game in our days (yes, a mere five years ago!). Apparently itz because Mizzou is now part of the SEC.

We all still dressed pretty casually to the game. Plus, it was 95 degrees outside under the blazing sun, so wearing anything remotely nice was not appealing whatsoever.
What’s your alma mater? Did/do you tailgate and go to the football games? MIZ!
