When I was invited to a Rutgers Football game, I had no idea of the pageantry that would take place before the game ever started. Outside the stadium was a street fair atmosphere, where I received a red “R” tattoo on my cheek, witnessed a sea of people in red shirts (hard to keep track of friends!), and a parade by the marching band and the “real” Rutgers Scarlet Knight. When watching a game on television, all you see are the actual football plays, the commentators, and commercials. There is no comparison between a game on TV and the entire college football experience. What fun!!
