Monday, October 3, 2016 – Monday After College Football Saturday Awards

Tequila shots and Poo Poo Undies Awards for Every college team except Alabama! What the hell – give the Tide a Poo Poo Undies Award for use later.

I will also award Alabama and LSU The Manicure Award for being the only games that were not nail biters or heart attack givers.

With Monday after comments, let’s begin.

THE University of Texas is awarded:

The Shoot Out at the OK (State) Corral.


wheres-waldo-800x564 The Where’s Waldo – aka Rudolph? Where’s the ball? Where’s the Texas Defense? Look- I am a old woman who never played a down of football but who could catch a pass in that defensive strategy. PS – the ball is seen just above the 25 yard line.

The Cowgirl and/or the Horse Could Have Kicked Better Award. Notice the rider does not wear a black mask or a cape like you know who. I guess these Cowboys do not need to hide their face.

How is that cost cutting measure to save $300,000 by limiting the coaching staffs from dining with their players going? I recently posted some additional costs savings suggestions for you like camping out in the Cotton Bowl and eating a fried stick of butter at the State Fair for The Red River Rivalry game and hitchhiking to Waco for the Baylor game. Guess you haven’t seen them yet. But here is a suggestion with an action plan to help out.

I picked up this flyer the other day on campus over here at The Harvard on The Brazos. I noticed that for $30 dollars one can take a tour of the newly renovated Kyle Field AND then have lunch in the Nutrition Center with the athletes.

Kyele Field Flyer

Granted one is not allowed to interact with coaches or athletes, but hey – we’re the general public – not their coaching staffs.

Also, granted is that I can only do John Wax math, which turned out quite fortuitous for me later in life. My high school math homework was always “close to a right answer.” This would prove to be all I needed when doing “close enough for government” math.

But Stevie P., I think it might look something like this:

If two trains leave the station traveling @ … sorry. That problem is from the Fifth Grade math assessment. Here we are. (And math people please step forward):

If X = number of people on ONE stadium tour @$30 per person, on ONE day, how much money would that be?

(X) x ($30) = Y

Let’s pretend X = 12. So one tour would yield $360. Right?

Now, manipulate your variables. I know. It sounds nasty, but it’s not.

So if one tour/day with 12 people for ONE day = $360 then

ONE tour of 12 people for FIVE days that would be $1800.

Two tours per day of five people at five days would be $3600.

And so on and so forth. For goodness sakes, Stevie P. I can figure this one out and I’m a freaking liberals arts brain! It would not take long to regroup the cost savings. Do the math.

Solution – Offer tours of the stadium. Offer lunch and a picture made with Bevo. I know. It is not that simple. But come on. Hook ‘Em Hippies. And Stay Strong, Charlie.
