Earning Our Stripes

without comments

Homecoming greetings, Tiger fans!

Fall colors, blue skies, beautiful weather, and football victories, that’s the way I like it.  This Saturday our beloved Tigers host the Commodores from Vanderbilt University. It’ll be like playing a bad Colorado team from days gone by. Wrong color of gold, not much of a visiting crowd, and a team Mizzou will be happy to beat.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:00 p.m., I’ll be at the tailgate a long time before that. Bryan and Val Ninichuck are providing Buckinghams for the main fare. Sides, dessert items, a hunger for victory and a thirst for celebrating winning would be welcome additions. Call Wingate Lawn and Pest Management for all your lawn and pest management needs.

Mizzou is making an effort to “tiger stripe” the stadium. Fans are to wear either black or gold depending on where you’re sitting. A black and gold map is helpfully attached. Sadly, a video of the Larry Smith-era “Earning Our Stripes” commercial is not attached (or was it Woody-era?). Google, you failed me, in my efforts to continue “…. working hard, for Ole Mizzou.  Earning Our Stripes!”

Go Tigers, beat the ‘Dores. Keep winning, SEC East Champions hooray. On a side note, Go Royals! (and screw ku.)
