Senior Day at UT Football
after yelling so much at the game, I am a little hoarse.
Well, I was expecting UT to spank Kansas. And had they not given up a ridiculous kick return, UT would have had an even better game.
Anyhow, hopefully we'll still be voted in the top 3 or four this week, given the decisive 50-21 win.
Jamie, Jason, The Admiral and I attended this evening's contest on the University of Texas campus. I yelled. A lot. Its what I do.
It was Senior Day, which meant the final home game for players like McCoy, Shipley, Muckleroy and Houston. No doubt 2010 will be another building year as QB Gilbert figures out if he can fill the shoes of his predecessors (speaking of, James Brown was at the game! That's some mid-90's UT flashback material.).
But it was also Senior Day for dozens of members of the UT marching band, sideline crew, cheerleaders, dance squad, and limitless drunk kids in the stands. Colt and his crew were gracious, and a huge number of fans remained in the stands to salute the seniors and give them one last Texas cheer.
Anyway, a lot of fun.
It was also the first game Jamie and I have attended together, which seems odd, given that we've been together since '95. But there you have it. I think she had a good time, even if she disappeared for 30 minutes in pursuit of a hot cocoa. I'm chivalrous, but not "30 minutes standing in line for cocoa during the 3rd and 4th quarter" chivalrous.
We cheer a lot together at home, but its more fun to cheer with 103,000 of your closest friends.
And, hey, Fantomenos, saw that Oregon score and highlights. Holy smokes.
