The Best Day of the Year is HERE!

As sad I as I am to see another fun summer come to a close, I am so amped for today! Today, my friends, is the best day of the year: COLLEGE GAME DAY! Some know of my undying love for my alma mater, Michigan State University. My parents were right, those four years were the best years of my life. I was a season football ticket holder during my four years at MSU, and then went to nearly six years worth of games post-college with my Dad before moving to NYC. So it goes without saying ... I love my school and I love my school's sports.

Tonight at 8pmEST on ABC, my Michigan State Spartans take on the California Golden Bears at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, Calif. Tonight's game also marks the fourth-ever meeting between the two teams and MSU leads the series 2-1.

So if you're into college sports or follow the Big Ten like I do, cheers to you. Today is a marvelous day. If you root for the University of Michigan -- this one's for the Sultan and Fitzy -- may the Wolverines show up today against Utah. Here's hoping you don't repeat last year's dismal season opener vs. Appalachian State. That one's still gotta hurt.

GO GREEN! GO WHITE! GO STATE!

SUNDAY: Sadly, MSU and UofM both lost yesterday. Michigan almost had it against Utah, losing by two points, 23-25. For me, my Spartans lost to California by a touch down, 31-38. New York also didn't carry the game, and instead I had to listen to old man Lou Holtz blather on and on ESPN. Sucks. Bad first week start. Everyone in The Big 10 Conference except for Michigan, Michigan State, and Illinois won yesterday.
