CP vs. Humboldt

Last weekend John and I went to Cal Poly's opening football game against Humboldt! How exciting is it that they were playing Humboldt? It was the first time they had played in 4 years (I think). We noticed there were two Sarvinski boys from Ferndale on the team, but I don't think they made the traveling squad (we didn't see them on the sidelines). We were hoping for some legit local boys on the team.
Cal Poly played really bad in the first half. Granted we didn't know if Humboldt was playing really good, or if we were playing really bad since it was the first game of the season. I found out later that Humboldt is a division below us, so apparently we were playing bad.

Side Note: It seems as though Humboldt is called the 'Jacks' now and not 'Lumberjacks.' What gives? That is lame.

Even though this is our 3rd year of being season ticket holders John and I were so excited for the first game of the season. One of the best things I saw in the beginning was this dude on the Humboldt sidelines:
Someone was totally pumped to catch some rays in SLO. Granted it is warm for maybe the first hour of the game, (at 6pm), but after that it gets really cold. However since this dude is used to the cold he was able to wear the tank top for the WHOLE game. Impressive.

Another interesting thing we saw was #18's awesome helmet holder. I think he should get a patent on it ASAP!
There were quite a few CP female students dressed in Humboldt shirts, (don't ask how we know they were local). Maybe they were from Humboldt but they didn't look like they still lived there if you know what I mean.

The Mustangs did pull out a victory in the end (thank goodness), and a good time was had by all...even the few hippies that made the trip from the HC.

Humboldt is disappointed in your lack of loyalty.
