Idaho State University Football

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?

Today my son Matt and I went to the home opener for Idaho State University's football team. Idaho State has about 12,000 students, including Matt, who is a sophomore this year. Idaho State is located in Pocatello, Idaho, about 50 miles from Ammon, just the other side of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation.

Idaho State played a smaller school from Oregon and won easily. The school, Southern Oregon, is in the town where my parents live, Ashland, Oregon. Small world.

Idaho State is one of the few college football teams to have an indoor stadium. It's called Holt Arena.

I forgot my camera, but here are some shots from a game last year.

I am more of a baseball and soccer fan, but enjoy the occasional football game.

Below, the exterior of the Holt Arena. Pictured are Matt Morris and his buddy Pedro 'Pepo' Mena. Both are currently sophomores at Idaho State.

Now I would have loved to have been there. I'm a big Football fan. When I lived in Texas a trip to the Astrodome to watch the Oilers was a good day spent.

Ah, yes, the old Houston Oilers. You probably got to see Warren Moon, Earl Campbell, and Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, right?
The Oilers are no more. However, Houston has a new team, the Texans. The Oilers went to Tennessee and became the Tennessee Titans.
Wish you could have been here.

Warren Moon, top man indeed! I saw Earl Campbell too. I think I just missed least he doesn't register in my mind. Do the Texans play at the Astrodome?
