Things Only Sports Fans in College Will Appreciate

Let's make one thing clear: Legally speaking, college students are adults.

They are free to vote, gamble and dodge bullets for their country. Half of them can even legally drink adult beverages.

They are not true-blue grownups, however, and most readily admit that. Until you've graduated from college, got rejected from a crappy job and otherwise joined the shin-kicking-hailstorm-of-misery called "the real world," you have yet to fully cross the plane into adulthood.

Being only a couple of years out from graduating, I miss college dearly: the 10 a.m. wake-up, the '80s parties and the sports. You have so many sports at your fingertips! They're practically free!

The problem is that once you graduate, you get a job and start turning into a different sports fan. You are jaded, tired and not making a sign unless someone presses a Walther to your head and screams, "Get coloring!"

In this spirit, I've compiled a list of things only sports fans in college can understand (and the exception to the rule, where applicable). We did some crazy stuff, and we'll never find the energy to do it again.
