Here's a tradition we can agree on: fireworks after the Sun Devils score points. It's not old-school, but it is unique in the sense that thousands of people going about their business in Tempe and Scottsdale are made aware of an ASU score through a vibrant explosion in the sky.

I enjoy fireworks, I won't deny it. While video games and advances in technology have made them less impressive, they still are a jarring testament to human achievement and ingenuity.

ASU fans get to see a lot of fireworks when they head to Sun Devil Stadium. There are fireworks before the game, fireworks that explode from the field itself during the team introduction, and fireworks every time the Sun Devils score a touchdown, kick a field goal, and convert an extra point. It's almost a show in itself.

And here, I present you with a video that I made myself back in 2005. It is the definition of 'college freshman thinking his digital camera made good videos'. This was during the LSU/ASU game, and Sam Keller hit Zach Miller for a great touchdown. At the end of the video, we see the trademark firework after the extra point.

I know the video sucks, but I was having fun. I'd say it's hard not to have a good time at an ASU game.
