photo friday: part one: whatever makes your skirt fly up

22 Oct

As I’ve mentioned, I love going to football games. I’ve harbored this love for as long as I can remember, and in college, the love intensified.

Partially because of the Irish Guard.

Oh, how I love thee, Irish Guard. And how I lusted after thee while I was a college student. You were strapping young men, and most importantly, you were tall! I’ve always loved strapping, tall men!

Plus, there was a rumor that you really didn’t wear chonies under those kilts. SCANDALOUS! And I remember junior year of college, when our seats were in the fourth row, prime spots in front of the cheerleaders (because we liked to cheer along with them and mimic their cheering moves) and prime spots for watching the Guard do their signature spins, their kilts flying up for all to see that yes. That rumor?

No rumor.

It’s all true.

And to this day, when caught in mid-spin, we can see that some traditions never die.

    First, I loved mimicking the cheerleader cheers too at LSU games. The best one was one by the boy cheerleaders, which they must have come up with all by themselves.

    “D! D! Defense. D! D! Defense.” (Shouted in as deep of a voice as they could muster).

    It really is quite imaginative.

    Anyway, those photos are scandalous. Woo! Love it.
