Game Day – Thursday, August 28, 2014
Dust off your old tap shoes and step, ball change along to the old Vaudeville song:
Nothing would be finer than to have beaten Carolina in the morning;
Nothing would be sweeter than to read of how we beat ‘em in the morning:
If I had Aladdin’s Lamp for only one day; I’d make a wish and here’s what I’d say;
Nothing would be finer than to have beaten Carolina in morrrrrrrrrning.
Well, it is a looooong time until Friday morning, but here we go. Tonight at 5:00 pm CST, live on the SEC network, from Columbia, South Carolina to kick off to the 2014 college football season, premiering will be the Fighting Texas Aggies and the Fighting Gamecocks. These two teams kick off a new season, a new network, a new playoff system, new stadiums (or is it stadia?); new coaches, and many new and hopeful teams and their loyal fans. I am already as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. So Gig ‘Em Aggies! Sic “Em Bears! Give ‘Em the Ax, Jacks and even you too, Longhorns. Bring home a win.
Here is a photo I had taken at the mini yell practice to kick off the new SEC Network. I almost had to throw a woman and her small child down the steps of the Association Building to do it, so please be appreciative.
