To push our bodies to the limit all year long for 'just a few Saturdays', to play this grueling sport of football, you have to have motivation -- something that pushes you everyday. For some, it might be getting that championship ring, breaking a record, or maybe the hopes of making it to the next level.
But whatever your motivation is, it is always in the back of your mind screaming at you to push yourself to finish that last rep. It won't let you take a play off while everyone else is working so hard.
As I said last time, there are a lot more motivating factors screaming at all of us for this upcoming season.
One of them for me is the thought of a sold out Auburn stadium and the Washington State Cougars coming to town!! If that doesn't send chills down your spine then you aren't trying. Just imagining a 98 degree, hot, humid, hostile environment with a sea of crimson and gray taking over the stadium!!
OH MY GOODNESS!!!
I tell you right now, it could go down in the history books as one of those once in a career epic battles, one with the extreme support of the visiting team. It would be on ESPN constantly as a favored re-run.
Now that all of you got me riled up, ranting and raving, maybe I should bring it down a little bit and come back to the diary.
As a team, we love our crowd participation. We feed off of the Cougar Nation of Domination. When we hear the fight song or see the Cougar chomp in the crowd, it gives us an automatic jolt of energy. Speaking for the team I would just like to say, Thank You. We appreciate all of our fans!!!
If you have any questions, post them on the message boards on Cougfan.com and I'll do my best to answer as many as I can. Until next time, we are and still remain the COUGAR NATION OF DOMINATION!
