Photo Lovin' Friday: Tombstone Games

Tombstone Games.

Those are the big ones.

Those are the games where Clemson goes on the road against a top 20 opponent and takes them down in their house. It's unexpected. It's exhilarating  It has you screaming at the TV, covering your eyes, & trying to do whatever you can do from home to pull your team through. If Clemson comes out with a win, the game gets a Tombstone.

Tomorrow's game is one of the biggest {if not biggest} game that Clemson has ever played in and it certainly is the biggest game that Clemson has ever hosted. I'd certainly consider this a Tombstone Game even though it's not on the road. It's bigger than those.

It's huge. You should know that by  now unless you live under a rock, so I'll get to the photos instead of boring you with all the reasons why it's huge.

Just outside of Clemson's practice fields you can find a series of tombstones. These tombstones represent all of the top 20 road victories that Clemson has accomplished over the years. This was one of the places that I documented during the fall of my senior year {as I was slowly coming to the realization that holy cow, I was going to have to leave Clemson in the spring!} and I wanted pictures of everything.




 The best part of these games is remembering where I was when I was watching them because they're not the kind of games you forget easily... like the Peach Bowl? Liza & Becky had come to visit from NC and I made them {yup, pretty much forced them} to be Clemson fans for the day. I think I managed to convert them though... eventually :)
 Junior year of high school... this is the game where I learned the importance of you do not move once your team starts putting together a comeback on the road. Whatever you're doing, wherever you are sitting/standing, you stay. No matter what. This game might be one of my favorite random high school memories.
Ohhhh FSU. Freshman year. 

I want to hear this through the stadium tomorrow night:

That's from my 2nd to last game as a student, but the last one where I sat in the student section.

Unbelievable.

Amazing.

I want to experience this again!


Happy Solid Orange Friday! Beat FSU!

  1. Even though I am totally cheering for FSU tomorrow, I can totally relate to missing the student section. Sitting with the adults is just not the same :)

  3. In the plenty of the flash games, what I like most is the physics-based flash games. They are called physics-based games because they are based on the Box2D physics engine, which is an open source 2D physics engine for games. They are really small flash games but they bring you a great world. Most of them have the good control practice, great levels design, amazing visual effects and awesome audio effects. http://63.250.38.187/Murahqq/

  4. You should not let the title 'video game tester' fool you into thinking that this is not a job but the chance to be paid to do what you love the most. While it is true that video game testers have a lot of fun playing the games that they fell in love with at a young age, it is also a very serious job. Daftar Jurusqq
