Although, I'm a Penn Stater.
Last night The Gin Mill hosted the most raucous crowd of post U of Fl students I have ever seen, and they are the first I've seen. The crowd was literally vibrating. You could feel the energy pulsing through you, and even if you weren't a Gator fan you couldn't help but clap your hands Gator style "chomp chomp" or chant how great it is to be a Florida Gator.
I am by no means a fan of Ohio but a little piece of me did want a Big Ten team to win that national championship. After the first 15 seconds, I thought Ohio had the chance, but Florida responded with a open handed SLAP to the face.
The first quarter was too exciting for words. I really didn't think so much could happen in less than a half hour, but it did and if you lived between 81st and 82nd on Amsterdam you weren't going to sleep any time soon.
So for a night. I was a Gator fan. Although if Penn State didn't win against Tennessee in the Outback Bowl, I'm not sure I could stand them Gator boys.
*did I mention Chris Leak is GORGEOUS not to mention SMART??*
