Nearly two years later, Washington State University fans can watch football at Gesa Field at Martin Stadium once more. College football is back, and for fans, it means reunions and meeting new people through a standard love: The Cougs. Mike Tobin and his friends were found out within the parking zone right across the stadium on Saturday, sitting in their chairs and chatting over some beers.
His friends Corey Bonsen and Steve Adams were just a couple of a complete of six families who kept coming together due to WSU football. This year marks 10 years they’ve spent every game with one another “Just started parking here with people and one met subsequently then subsequent and therefore the next thing you recognize, we’re huddled over here and are meeting five, six weekends a year right here with our family, our Coug family,” Tobin said.
They couldn’t be with their Coug family like normal last year. COVID forced WSU to possess limited games and fans couldn’t even be there. That meant Adams, Bonsen, and Tobin couldn’t found out like they are doing per annum and luxuriate in Cougar football and a few beers. “It was difficult. We huddled up the simplest we could in garages and shops to observe the few games they did have. There were tons missing from the whole fall,” Tobin said.
Many of them live across the state and always had a standard goal to urge together when the Cougs played in Pullman. it had been a blow when COVID changed things last year, but they’re happy to be back and see everyone together again. “It’s good to be back home. We always find our way back home,” Adams added.
