Day 23: Attend a FAMU men’s basketball game

23 Jan

I knew I was in for a good time when the seats reverberated as I walked into the doors of the Lawson Center, where the Florida A&M University men’s basketball team played Howard University. The buzz was thanks to the bumpin’ dance music blaring from speakers mounted on the scoreboard. Clearly, Rattlers know how to have a good time. The game itself was entertaining, with FAMU keeping its lead the entire game, but Howard occasionally made it close enough to be a nail-biter. The FAMU cheerleaders — as well as various other scantily-clad dance squads camped throughout the arena — were also impressive. Cheerleaders did high-air flips and stunts that were beyond what I saw from the Florida State cheerleaders when I went to a recent FSU women’s basketball game.  FAMU games are not just for students or alumni; anyone would have a great time cheering for the basketball team and be charmed by the Rattler spirit.
