Wow Mike. My two favorite teams are Michigan State and whoever plays Michigan. I've really gotten to enjoy the MSU - PSU rivalry. Except the last couple of years when PSU trounced us. I was at the MSU-PSU game about 3 years back. MSU had gotten out to a quick 28-0 lead by half time. Everyone thought it was over, but PSU came back and tied it. Then with about a minute remaining in the game, TJ Duckett took the ball at about the 7 or 8 yard line, got hit by what seemed to be 4 or 5 defenders and dragged them into the end zone. Man, that was the most exciting sporting event I've ever been to. I'm not much of an excitable kind of guy, but I screamed myself hoarse that game. I still get chills thinking about it. That year, MSU went onto the Citrus Bowl and beat Florida (another team I love to hate). It was quite a year to be a Spartan fan. Hopefully our new coach can bring them back.
Best of luck to your Nittany Lions this year, Mike. I look forward to the game again this year.
