Welcome Colorado Spartans!
It's been a great year for Spartans everywhere. The "go greens" have always been quickly followed by a friendly "go white," but there seems to be more Spartan spirit flowing these days due to the recent success of our Big Ten Champion football and basketball teams...and for good reason. We have the best President, AD and coaches in the land! And while we're all proud of the athletic success we've had, we're even more proud of how we do it with integrity thanks to our incredible leadership. While we sit back and enjoy our summers free of Spartan sports (sigh), we can all still enjoy being a part of this amazing Spartan family!!
So while we might be on a little of a hiatus until fall...keep in mind that for all of our games, we all meet up at the Blake St Tavern to watch our games with fellow Spartan fans and alumni! We always have very large groups for every single football game (packing every room of the entire bar for the bigger games like Oregon and UM this season), and the bigger basketball games. Regardless of the size of the group, our game watches are a great chance to get to know other Spartans in the area, while soaking in the greatness of our sports teams! We set up a booth in the tailgate room where we sell our awesome "Colorado Spartans" gear that has become a hit with Spartans from all over the country! We have short and long sleeve T shirts, bumper stickers, pint glasses, frisbees, and other goodies. For larger crowds, we also run raffles where you can win some of this fabulous gear. The proceeds from our raffles and gear sales help Colorado students go to MSU through our club scholarship. These are great ways to get to know other alumni out here in Colorado while giving back to the school that we love.
The Blake St Tavern is located at 2301 Blake Street, Downtown Denver - www.blakestreettavern.com
Hope to see you soon - and GO GREEN!
