Love you, Cam! Good Luck, Carolina! Sorry Phillip! But did you really think I was NOT going to stand with the Former Students of Texas A&M University? Gary Kubiak was the quarterback for The Fighting Texas Aggies when I stood in the boiling afternoon sun on the east side in Kyle Field in the 1980’s. And how about Consensus All American in 2009 and in 2010 Texas A&M linebacker, Von Miller? We have breathed the air of Kyle Field and Aggieland.

Here is a Horse Laugh to the uniformed sports reporter who referred to them as “Former Aggies.” There is no such thing as a Former Aggie. We are known as Former Students and we are ALWAYS a Texas Aggie. It probably has something to do with breathing the air of Kyle Field and Aggieland.

So Here’s to the Denver Broncos

and

BTHO Carolina in Super Bowl 50!

Trivia answers: Gary Kubiak graduated from St. Pius X in Houston, Texas in 1978.

Von Miller graduated from DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas in 2007.

Most tasty lunch

The best part of lunch of seeing Kyler Murray in the dining hall and he actually said hello to us.  You have to take my word for it because we were not allowed to take photos of the players.

Monday, December 22, 2014 – The Implosion of the West Side of Kyle Field

I arrived at the Reed Arena viewing area at 6:30 AM Sunday, December 21, 2014. Time flew by as there were over 7000 people there to watch the implosion. Where I stood a group brought music. We sang The Spirit of Aggieland and War Hymn and listened to Noble Men of Kyle and Patton’s Theme.
