Labor Day night, at 7 pm I went to the Doak Stadium at FSU in Tallahassee, Florida, to see if I could get a ticket to the opening football game between the FSU Seminoles (click on Seminoles for info on the Seminole Tribe) and the Miami Hurricaines.
Tickets cost $65 to buy from the ticket office, but I wanted to see if I could find something at the gate, so I just went to the game to see what I could find.
The girls in the photo to the right, saw me looking for a ticket, and came over asking, "Do you want a ticket?" When I said yes, they were so pleased, and they wanted to just give it to me. Then they asked, "Can we get our picture taken with you?" It was a fun way to start the game.
You may have heard Lisa talk about the school "cheer"(and gesture). It is really something to see and hear...when the whole stadium is full of people doing the "tomahawk chop". The experience made me wonder why the shared enthusiasm of the game can't be manifest in a shared desire for health care reform. The crowd was diverse, and I kept saying to myself, in the tune of the cheer, "Hea....lth Care for every.....onnnne."
An interesting day /night in Tallahassee. Love to all, Sara
