Rattlers “Attempt” Wave At Football Game!

Posted by thelense on Friday, October 10, 2008

And the key word for tonight is “attempt” because thats pretty much all we did. The wave never picked up steam although it did seem to keep picking up speed. It went around a good 4 times but never made it to the levels of NFL type waves. But hey cant blame the rattlers for trying.

The Quasi-Wave

Rattler Football Wins Again!

Posted by thelense on Thursday, October 9, 2008

The Florida A&M University football team defeated Winston-Salem, Thursday night in Bragg Memorial Stadium. The game was in Rattler control pretty much from the beginning and stayed that way all four quarters. Nothing is better than FAMU winning. Although I didnt stay the entire game? Maybe I can only stay the entire game when we lose? Oh well, GO FAMU!!!! Any game won at zero is fine by me!


Final Score: FAMU (23) Winston-Salem (0)

FAMU is now 4-2

Sadly Almost Doesn’t Count!

Posted by thelense on Saturday, October 4, 2008

Today was a not so great day in Rattler Land. The Florida A&M University football team which had been doing great for the past few weeks finally lost a game at the hands of that stupid(1) South Carolina team. When I arrived at the game FAMU was losing. This immediately plunged me into a bout of minor depression. All I kept thinking was why’d i drive all the way to the game just to found out we are losing. But being the optimist I am I decided to hold out hope that FAMU would produce something great. 30 Seconds before halftime there wasn’t much promise. The score was still showing that FAMU was losing. Halftime came and went, the Marching 100 did their thing, Army ROTC was honored. All great! But the important fact remained FAMU was still losing. At the beginning of the second half things started to look promising. FAMU scored a touch down and then less than 1 minute later it seemed like they scored another. I don’t know what the coach told them but whatever it was it was working. We were BACK IN THE GAME the rattlers were in the lead. Sadly we weren’t able to maintain our lead and the North Carolina team took the lead and maintained it until the end of the game. As the clock finally played out the score was set. FAMU (21) and South Carolina State (28). I have never stayed to the end of a FAMU game since I been in school and oddly enough the first time I did was on a losing night. I am grieving right now and coping with things the only way I know how (By stuffing my face). What happens to a dream deferred is all I can ask myself now. Does life go on after a loss? Apparently so but for now i’m choosing to sulk over the football teams loss.

Final Score: FAMU (21) South Carolina State (28) which leaves us at 3-2

First Half

Second Half

In the game of football almost doesn’t count. And sadly FAMU almost won but it wasn’t mean to be. But much respect to the rattler football team I know those guys are working hard and have to be taking this loss bad.

(1) I dont really think the South Carolina team is stupid

The Florida A&M Rattlers were victorious again, winning the ATL Classic football game by defeating Tennessee State. I have to admit I am really proud of my football team. The Rattler Football team is really doing it big this year and I wish them continued success on and off the field! I also hope everyone makes it home safe from ATL!

Final Score: Rattlers (28) Tennessee State (21)

Rattlers Win Again!

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 21, 2008

Say what you want about the rattler football team but they are off to an impressive start this year. They won yet another game today after beating Howard. Even though the coach doesn’t know the “strike, strike, and strike again” chant he seems to be working well with the team and leading them to some wins! So congrats Rattlers!!!

Final Score: Rattlers (51) Howard (24)
