Watching my first Homecoming Game at UW—Oshkosh
Social Media Ambassador at Kings Wisconsin, Aika, reports back on watching her first homecoming American football game at University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh.
On October 23, I had an opportunity to watch the American football game at University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh for the first time in my life for homecoming. There were many spectators in the cold weather, and many of the bleachers were filled.
Even before the game started, there were cheers of support from many people, but when the players appeared on the stage, the atmosphere in the match hall became very lively, and I could tell that the cheers were encouraging the players.
My first impression of the game was that it was an aggressive one, where one wrong move could have resulted in serious injury, but there seemed to be warm teamwork that cared for their friends. When someone from the opposing team fell, they would reach out to help, even though it was the other team. When a member of their team made a mistake, instead of attacking the team member who made the mistake, they would encourage them by rubbing their shoulders or giving them high fives. I thought this was another good way to build a strong team.
I was very happy to see University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh win. I had a great time watching and experience American football.
