Spartans in Miami


We had a fabulous weekend that began on Friday with a visit from my sister and brother-in-law. We tried to go on a tiki bar hop with our favorite boat captain, but because of stormy weather the boat ride was cut short. That didn’t stop us and we just finished the day by driving to the other bars, ending in Sarasota as planned.

Saturday was all about Spartan football and we could not have had more fun.  We drove over to Miami for the noon game against the University of Miami and came away with a big win.  There were so many other Spartans who made the trip and sitting in the stands at an away game surrounded by all that joy, was something I won’t soon forget.  Our tradition in East Lansing has always been to enjoy a dinner and margaritas at our favorite Mexican restaurant post game (El Azteco) and we kept the tradition alive with a stop in Naples at the Mercato (Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar).

When we moved to Florida from Michigan, giving up our football season tickets was hard, but we always thought for sure there would be a bowl game or two in Florida.  Many circumstances have not brought that about in the past four years, but the future of MSU football is looking bright and we will keep our green and white gear ready.

Happy Monday!


  1. I miss the Az when I'm even away for the summer! Can't imagine how it feels to miss it so far away! What a fantastic game. So glad you could attend and have such a grand time!

  2. Glad you got to go to the game..So glad that football is back..I have missed it..

    1. So much fun! We were surrounded by Spartans in the stands and loving it!

  4. Sounds like a “winner” weekend all the way around!
    What fun!

    1. It was so great to come away with the win, but would have been fun anyway! I have been a Spartan too long to know a win is never taken for granted!
