This week is Battle of the Valleys as both Saginaw Valley and Grand Valley. I’m torn, because I attended Grand Valley for my first two years of college but I am now in my first semester at Saginaw Valley. I know I’m supposed to root for my school, but they are both my school. However, I already have an idea who will win the football game and I don’t think they will be in red.

However, the football game isn’t the only competition. There is also the money raising competition and for the past few days there have been SVSU students in bright yellow vests at the busiest intersection in town walking between cars when they are stopped in order to get donations. It seems to be working. More than half the cars throw in their change. I keep the little change I have though. So I’m not exactly supporting my school. Oh well, we’ll see what happens. The winner is announced Saturday.

This will be the first year that I won’t be going to the game. I attended it both my freshman and sophomore years, but since the SVSU football stadium doesn’t have flood lights the game has to start early in the day, noon, and I will be working until 5pm. So this game will be missed. It would be too cold for it anyway.

    We have people stopping cars at intersections here in Grand Rapids, too. Except they’re not collecting money for school, they’re just homeless.

    We have homeless people too, but in the city, not by the mall.
