Hey y’all and welcome back to the Teen Scene column in Enid Monthly!! Most of you reading this probably know that September is a time for Fun, Fall and my personal favorite… FOOTBALL. So, this month I am going to be sharing stories about my experiences with the sport. LET’S GOO!!
Ever since I was a little girl, I remember attending the Oklahoma State football games with my dad and tailgating with him and all of his friends. Sometimes I would see people playing Beer Pong and would want to join but for obvious reasons, I couldn’t so I made my own game called WATER PONG. It was one of my favorite games to play. When we would go into Boone Pickens Stadium, it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Being the little girl that I was, I didn’t understand too much about football. Now it is my favorite sport to watch. The food is AMAZING at the tailgating parties, the people are such a joy to listen to and of course, the games and traditions are so heartwarming. My favorite traditions at games are the call back where one side of the stadium says ORANGE and the other side screams POWER, watching Bullet run across the field after Touchdowns and the Ride ‘em Cowboys song. I love being able to argue with boys at school about which team is better: OU or OSU and of course, my answer is always OSU. Since last season I started going to almost every home game and am looking forward to doing the same this season. I am especially excited to watch our QB Gunnar Gundy, WR Brennan Presley and DB Dylahn Mckinney.
I love High School football games just as much as OSU games. Getting to dress up for the themes is one of my favorite parts. I also enjoy getting to watch the boys I personally know play. My favorite game would have to be Homecoming because the dance is usually the Saturday after. After almost every home game we have this thing called 5th quarter where anyone from Enid High goes to the gym to hangout and eat after the football games till about 11. I remember having the best time playing volleyball and football with all of my friends there. Another cool thing we do is called Big Blue Block Parties where they have some booths and cool games for people to play outside of the stadium before the games.
