I like the Missouri Tigers. I like college football, basketball, and wrestling (not that fake junk). I like bar food and the fancy stuff too. I like beer. I like tailgating. I like to play red-neck golf. When no one is looking, I do cartwheels in the halls at work. I have 3 brothers and a sister, and I still won't take a fish off a hook. I like colors. I've never eaten glue or crayons or sniffed white out (just magic markers). I have freckles and a dog. My dog's name is NOT Freckles. I'm scared of giant pigeons and grasshoppers....

ESPM? Booo… YAY!!


October 11, 2003, Missouri vs. Nebraska, was perhaps the most exciting Missouri game I’ve ever witnessed. It was a cold rainy day, and Missouri trailed 24-14 in the third quarter. However, the rain and cold went unnoticed as Missouri outscored Nebraska 27-0 in the fourth quarter; thus, breaking a 24-game losing streak and beating a then Top 10 team. Since then, the Tigers have successfully beaten Nebraska at home, and Saturday was no exception…. Continue reading ESPM? Booo… YAY!!

I Look Fabulous in Purple; Otherwise, I would SO Not Where It

If it wasn’t for a pre-planned outing with a few women who insist on complaining about work and berating their “friends” (one reason krizzou prefers the men-folk), last Saturday could’ve been a stress-free day for me.  It was of course Missouri’s bye week, so I didn’t have to sweat over Pinkel’s inexplicable play-calling.  (Seriously, it’s a good thing the guy can recruit.)  Instead, I spent late morning/afternoon in an unruly sea of purple at the infamous Rusty’s Last Chance in Shawnee Mission.   Continue reading I Look Fabulous in Purple; Otherwise, I would SO Not Where It



Another week down, another win for the Tigers and another climb in the polls. For a second week in a row I traveled to the heart of the beautiful state of Missouri for a day of tailgating and Tiger football. Unfortunately, we were not blessed to have a consecutive week of gorgeous fall weather, but all-in-all it was a pretty good college gameday. Continue reading TWO and a HALF HOURS, MY pig BUTT!!

T-D, we want a… what!?

It was around 8:15 Saturday morning, cruising across I-70 in Nowhere, MO when I opened my eyes from my brief nap and saw the first of many tiger tails whipping in the wind. The familiar site of the tiger tail attached to the trunk of the SUV brought a smile to my face. Sure it was week 3 of the season, sure there had already been two Mizzou victories, but this was the first home game; the first tailgate, the first day of watching football in the open air, and I was ready….

Week 2: Home of the 12th Man, Wedding Parties, and YUCK!

Here’s yet another late post from the sunny side of State Line.  Forgive me for my tardiness, but I have my “first game” blinders on.  Each year, about 1 week prior to Mizzou’s home opener, I turn into a giddy little school girl.  My mind is clouded with thoughts of Tiger football, beer, brats, reuniting with old friends, etc.  It’s similar to thoughts of sugar plums, but even better!  Still, I can muster up a few thoughts about week two.  We’ll do this random style, and unlike Yurple, I don’t mind if you complain a little about local teams not being televised.

This Little Piggy Watched Football, This Little Piggy had Beer…

And this little piggy saved the game!

Okay, that wasn’t much of a nursery rhyme, but it should give you enough information on whether or not you desire to finish reading my ‘kick-off’ post. In all honesty, I’m very excited about this venture. College Football season is absolutely my favorite time of year. It’s not just the game; it’s the camaraderie, the tailgating, the stories, the rivalries, the upsets… Regardless, if you’re an MU fan like me, a K-State fan like P-Yeti, or dear I say it, one of those Jayhawkers, I hope you find this site useful, or at least somewhat entertaining. Let the entertainment begin…. Continue reading This Little Piggy Watched Football, This Little Piggy had Beer…
