Seven Things Every FSU Fan Will Do Tonight

Today is a very special day for FSU fans. No, Tim Tebow still won't eat those poison apples we keep sending him, but tonight the Seminoles face Auburn for the national title. And if you couldn't tell by the way we reacted to Jameis Winston's trial, nothing is more important to us than football.

I spent four years at Florida State, and during that time I learned a lot about the fans of my university. So I can say, without a doubt, that every FSU fan will do these seven things tonight.

1. Tomahawk Chop You know that thing you always see us do at football games? The air-chopping motion that looks like an early draft of the Nazi Salute?

"I don't know, Günther. It just seems so linear."

Well, that thing is called the Tomahawk Chop, and it's what we do to let everyone know that we're proud fans of the Seminoles (the football team, not the actual tribe of people who find the gesture terribly offensive).

Keep your head on a swivel or you'll end up with a black eye.

2. Rub It In In your face Gators/Hurricanes/Alabama/Mom! None of that losing we did for the past 15 years matters now, because we're on top!

We're like that friend who used to come to your house and play Mario Kart. It doesn't matter that we lost 20 straight races; the minute we finish first, you're going to get a controller thrown at your head because we're the best and you're a LOSER!
