ETERNAL FAN Football’s in the air All the colleges prepare Students don colors Excitement everywhere It seems like just yesterday At the stadium Alma maters by the bands Cheerleaders tumbling A vendor throwing peanuts To customers in the stands And here comes the team Pride of Smith Center Teachers Dressed in red and white I was there with all my friends Wildly yelling “Fight! Fight! Fight!” From trusted wheel chair Still getting into the game Excitement the same I’m still singing with the band With oxygen close at hand

Dear Daver, Football is a treasure we share and I love the way this fan keeps cheering, even as his health fails. You gave some wonderful images, like the vendor tossing the peanuts and the wearing of team colors. I have my garnet and gold set to wear on Saturday. Hope Michigan has a terrific season! Love, Carolyn PS-There was an elderly man who used to attend the FSU games and he was much like the one you described above. His presence has been missed in recent years.
