This past weekend was the first JMU home football game, and I couldn’t have had any more fun! Not only did I get to watch my favorite football team win the game, but I also got to experience the exciting atmosphere of the new and improved Bridgeforth Stadium! Before the game, my friends and I had so much fun eating hot dogs and hamburgers, and playing games like ladder golf and corn hole. Everyone was dressed in all of their JMU apparel, and I was even sporting my new football jersey that I had just bought from the bookstore. It was a blast!
The next home football game isn’t until homecoming week, which unfortunately is almost two weeks away! Although I will definitely try and watch these next two weeks of football games on TV or online, it is no where near as fun as the actual game. I can’t wait until the JMU Dukes take on Richmond on Saturday, October 1st! I also can’t wait for all the exciting events that go along with homecoming week, like the homecoming themed Late Night Breakfast on September 29th in East Campus Dining Hall! It’s Co-Sponsored with Homecoming Committee and its going to be an awesome event: Free Food (s’more pancakes), mechanical “footbull” (a football that you ride like a mechanical bull), and many prizes!
