Mitakihara Homecoming 2065: Back On The Rocks

September 28, 2065


Mitakihara University is known for continuing a long tradition that goes back five decades and a half: it's the world-famous Homecoming Week. This year's theme is "Back On The Rocks." Danleigh Marin-Bessey, the great-grandson of Tomas Marin, the mythical Mega NRG Man and a member of The Society, is this year's Homecoming Chair. Marin-Bessey is a sophomore history major born and raised in Mitakihara Town, B.C.

"I give a whole lot of credit to quarterback [Haruki] Trick Takayama for reminding me of my great-granddad when I came up with the theme," Marin-Bessey said at a promotional event at Mamiya Coffee inside Madoka Square. "He suggested it to me over at lunch and everyone agreed to it.

"My old man Tomas once said, 'When you're back on the rocks, it means you've been to the top.' To all alumni, past and present, you've witnessed history and championships as students, and, for the privileged few, as student-athletes. Now, you get a chance to return to the halls of glory and witness more history and memories that will last a lifetime. We welcome you Back On The Rocks. We welcome to you Homecoming 2065. Enjoy Homecoming Week. Be there!"

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on October 3, 2065 at 8 p.m. PT/11 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by City, TVA Sports, ESPN, NHK and BBC.
