Did you know that Mike won a trophy at ASU? Yes, me 😉
We met as college students, poor as dirt but incredibly in love and wanting to take on the world together, and 9 years later we went back to tailgate with Shamrock Farms to win another trophy! This time, Mike’s trophy was a little different. He was playing for a huge tongue called The Beat the Heat trophy (You can see it in the top photo on the right.) It took a little convincing, but my sister and I talked Mike into entering the hot wing competition. He did it, and wasn’t allowed to reach for a drink of milk for two minutes while his tongue and throat sizzled. He literally had tears rolling out of his eyes, but was living off of the hype of the crowd. At one point he threw his arm in the air and yelled, “Let me hear you scream!” It was classic. Parts of him are still the exact same as when we first met.
We all celebrated Mike’s win with our favorite drink: Milk from Shamrock Farms! It helped us all beat the heat, and cool down Mike’s taste buds, and with essential nutrients and vitamins, its better than other beverage options on game day. I’ve grown up drinking Shamrock Farms, so it was a full circle, exciting moment to be able to go tailgate before the game with them.
This game in particular was so fun because it was against our rival school, and it’s become a tradition to go to the games. I’m curious, do you guys keep up with your old school’s traditions? It keeps a nostalgic feeling for us, and reminds me of when we first met.
