Don’t Mess with Missouri…

October 25, 2010

The crowd of ecstatic fans chanted as they carried the goalpost through the streets, ending at Harpo's sports bar where it was dismantled, per tradition.

It was homecoming time here at the University of Missouri-Columbia last weekend, and in case you didn’t hear, we won- and I’m not just talking about the football game .  Aside from unseating #1 ranked team Oklahoma on Saturday evening, Mizzou Tigers fans came out in droves to shatter the previously held ESPN GameDay record of 15,000, with an estimated 18,000 people attending the program’s first visit to the university.  Check out the video below of students storming the field after the final whistle blew…

Fun Fact: Homecoming was actually invented at Mizzou in 1911.  MU’s homecoming celebration has been named the best Homecoming in the nation and a model homecoming program by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. The mostly Greek-run homecoming blood drive has held the Guinness Book of World Records title of nation’s largest since 1999.

    This was a kick ass win for Mizzo. The next week the Tigers came crashing down to earth. I am not a fan of Boomer Sooner.
