    [h=3]CU at the Game Contest[/h]Last spring/summer, the first CU at the Game contest, the “CU at …. ” photo contest, was a great success. I received CU photos from every continent (including Antarctica!), from over two dozen countries, and from over half of these United States (the winners are still posted in the “Gallery” section of the website, if you would like to take a look).
    This spring/summer, all you need to do is win is be a Buff fan.
    Okay, so you are checking out a website dedicated to CU football … and it’s months before the start of the season. I’m guessing you qualify as a Buff fan.
    As a Buff fan, you undoubted have many stories about following your team.
    Were you there for the Buffs’ first win over Nebraska in 17 seasons (in 1986)? For the national championship game? Where were you for “The Catch”? How about when Rashaan Salaam went over 2,000 yards in the 1994 finale, only to have his headline taken away a few minutes later when Bill McCartney announced his retirement? Have you been to Miami for the Orange Bowl? Tempe for the Fiesta Bowl? Honolulu for the Aloha Bowl?
    And then there are the stories which are more personal to each of us – Do you remember your first game at Folsom?*Your all-time favorite game? I’m guessing you*also have a*favorite player or a favorite play.
    All of the above is what makes you a loyal Buff fan – your history with the team. All I’m asking is that you share.
    Here’s all you have to do to enter the contest:
    1) Go to the “Archived Seasons” section of the website (link is on the front page);
    2) Find the game which you wish to tell us about (the CU at the Game archives goes all the way back to 1980);
    3) Click on “Post your own memories“, which is at the top of each game story; and
    4) Tell us your story.
    Your story doesn’t have to be long, and you are not being graded on style points (this is a football website, after all). Your story doesn’t have to be long or “special” – just as long as it’s special to you.
    Winners will receive a “CU at the Game” mousepad (okay, it’s not much, but I am hoping to have a lot of winners!). The best stories will be posted on the front page, under the “Archive Game of the Week“.
    You can read the story of our first winner on the front page of the website. Andy, a CU at the Gamer from New Jersey, wrote about the time he was working at Abo’s Pizza on the Hill in the late ’80′s, and his chance meeting with Buff quarterback Sal Aunese.
