Not So Wordless Wednesday - MSU Spartan Fans

We are a family of Michigan State University Spartan fans. I went to school there as did my brother, both of my cousins, my uncle and my mom.  The biggest Spartan fan I have ever met though, was my dad. He attended Western Michigan University (as did my husband!) but since we lived on the East side of the state it wasn't very feasible for us to attend athletic events at WMU. My dad was the biggest MSU fan EVER with season tickets to football and basketball games and at one point hockey too.

This year, MSU has a wonderful football team. Their head coach, Mark D'Antonio is awesome! He reminds me of my dad...unfortunately a little too much. Coach D'Antonio suffered a heart attack after the MSU football team beat Notre Dame last month in a spectacular fake-field-goal for the touchdown finish. I immediately thought of my dad and how he wasn't as lucky. He didn't survive his heart attack. I am so thankful that Coach did and that he will soon be back on the field with his team. They are currently undefeated and don't think for a second that my dad hasn't had anything to do with this amazing season - because in my heart, I know he has been high-fiving God after every MSU touchdown!

Go Green! Go White! Go State!
