As you can see, I’m lining up to get ready for the official start of another academic year.
It’s going to be a good one, and I’m not just talking about the prospects of all our Rustlers teams.
If you’ve been anywhere near our website or campuses, you’ve got to know that we’re getting ready to celebrate our 100th anniversary.
In fact, it’s such as party that we’re going to be starting all those celebrations before the big day in November 2013. Personally, I’m looking forward to the Great Prairie Steak Cookoff and the Pioneer Celebration respectively on Nov. 10 and 17 of this year. And it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that both events involve some of my favorite foods.
But I will plug the fact the steak cookoff will also be kicking off the Rustler basketball and volleyball seasons!
As a mascot I’m more used to indoor pursuits, and I’m still not up on all the rules of soccer. I’m sure I’ll learn a few more as I watch Rustlers action this fall... I’ll be looking for that delay of game rule that was called in the Olympics.
Even though the semi-final game the Canadian women lost--in somewhat dubious circumstances--was heartbreaking, the bronze medal win pushed everyone’s spirits to the heights.
Then there was the extra thrill of Christine Sinclair carrying our flag in the closing ceremonies. She’s an athlete you want to have on your team and can be proud of as a representative of our country.
