It’s Game Day, B——————!

I had to. It’s time for the return of those lovely yellow stickers, to be handed out at tailgates and throughout the stadium. I have several, courtesy of CoMo’s best friend, ChadBass (everybody seems to know that guy; he’s a Columbia legend and my friend of like 20+ years, omg).

And if the prospect of a sticker isn’t enough to fire you up for this momentous occasion, perhaps this video, narrated by THE Justin Gage, will get you hyped. If that doesn’t work, honestly, there’s no hope for you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Or this little diddy by former Tiger Lucas Vincent, who’s teaching his child the right way to fan. M-I-Z!!

So... because MANY people missed the #TigerStripeFaurot memo, I’m sharing it again here. I pulled out this handy dandy tweet for at least three of my J-School faculty members on Wednesday. DO NOT BE THE REASON THE STRIPE IS MESSED UP, YOU GUYS. But also, the athletic dept clearly needs to advertise this better as only those on social media seem to be aware of its existence, and even that is up in the air.

Worried about parking today? Never fear, Tiger fans! COMO Transit has got you covered!

“It’s funny because I spend a ton of time in the SEC,” she said. “And I think a lot of people, when Missouri joined the conference, people felt it was far away. The reality is, that’s the new college football. People travel across the country to see all of their teams. I think Columbia, Missouri is really underrated. There’s so many great places to eat there and it definitely has more of that old school, Big 12 vibe. But they are passionate about college football there and it’s really great in Columbia.”
