Fall means the return of rain in the Pacific Northwest and brilliant foliage in New England. It means relief from extreme heat in the southeast and southwest, and it means shorter days and longer nights in Alaska. Yet all across the country, north to south, east to west, fall also means football. And that’s a good thing.
Our Lansing, Michigan, Bed and Breakfast sits in the backyard of Michigan State University (figuratively speaking, of course). Each fall, we welcome the return of the Spartans with open arms. Each September, we clear our throats and get ready to cheer for the MSU Football Team.
The Spartans have had nothing but wins so far this year. They walloped Youngstown State 28-6, and they crushed Florida Atlantic 44-0. This Saturday, we’ll face stiffer competition at Notre Dame. We feel optimistic.
Many families stay with us or dine at our Lansing Restaurant while in town to drop off their students. For some, we’re as much a part of the “Back to School” tradition as packing the car. Their victories are our victories, their defeats our defeats.
We hope to see many fans at our Lansing pub to celebrate a victory after the game on Saturday, and in the coming months. Go Spartans!
