Bleeding Eagle Red For EWU

The roar of the crowd was deafening as the Eastern Washington University Eagles prepared to take the field Saturday afternoon. From my vantage point at the entrance of the team tunnel, I scanned the sea of red-shirted fans hoping to spot my husband. After all, it was his fault I was on sidelines of the first college football game of the season. I guess you could say I’m an Eagle by marriage. Derek is a proud EWU graduate (class of ’87). Whatever the case my blood bleeds red – Eagle red. As season ticket holders, you can find us in the stands at each home game, cheering our team on to victory. During the season I’m guilty of flooding my Facebook and Twitter feeds with frequent EWU posts. To my delight, those updates took me out of the stands and onto the field on Saturday, when I was invited to be a social media ambassador for the big game/Cindy Hval, Front Porch. More here.

Question: Do you live and die for a college football team?
