Texans!!!

Howdy Texans!!! So good to see a big bunch of you. We are sorely lacking this wonderful breed over here in my new home of NC. Wish I could commiserate on your money pit, but I'm still looking for one of my own. If only aluminitis were contagious, I might could pass it to my hubby and he would appreciate my numerous finds! Right now he's talking about renting an rv this summer for a trial run with our two young girls. Really?! Ugh....well, until he catches the fever I guess it'll do. He's a born and bred Texan, so I can't help but love him. Just thought I'd say a big Howdy from NC.

Misplaced Texan,
Ashley

"Hook 'Em Horns" is the University of Texas' motto.

"Gig 'Em Aggies" is Texas A&M's motto.

In Texas, you're either a Longhorn fan or an Aggie fan.

And then there are the Red Raiders....

Frederick, have you been to a High School football game yet in San Angelo? When we were stationed out there, it was THE social event of the week. Never mind the college boys. Some of the counties out in West Texas don't enough kids to field a full football squad, so they play somethin' called "6 man" football. I think football in Texas is just the king of sports, doesn't matter where it's played or what the team.

(Disclaimer: these are not criticisms, just observations after having lived there for about 10 years).

Jim

Jim,

Yes I have. As a matter of fact, the school that Renee and Mikey go to has 6-man football; we went to the homecoming game, and it was very fast-paced. Mikey wanted to play football too, but the school didn't sponsor elementary 6-man, so we enrolled him through the YMCA...he loved it! Their team won the Super Bowl and he proudly came home with a trophy....very proud day for dear old Dad!

Bob - Your friend was more than likely just lonely, probably misplaced in the greater scheme of Texas life. He/She probably didn't have an Airstream either, for some reason most Aggies don't, a sad situation all around .

An Aggie is walking down the street with a pig under his arm. He passes a friend of his and the friend asks, "Hey, where'd you get that"? The pig says, "I won him in a raffle".

One game in 2008, jeesh!!! If Blake Gideon hadn't been such a butterfingers trying to intercept the pass intended for Edward Britton, the score would have stayed 33-32.

Ahhh, yes Jim, I was waiting for someone to crack the first Aggie joke! I remember my initiation into Texas college pickin'. I was a mere 10 when I moved to TX and I was unafiliated with any universities at that time. Of course, when you go to school in TX, it is a must to wear your favored university T-shirt to school. I, being the unbred Texan that I am, had no clue which school I should pick. So, being the follower that I was at the age of 10, went with the most popular school pick of the time and became an official Aggie. As I became older, I still called myself an Aggie even though I didn't follow their sports nor did I attend their university. Of course, marrying a Texan narrowed my choices down a bit eventually, but once I became a football fan I naturally grew into a Longhorn.

OMG, in regards to football being life in TX- sports in general are so much better there, no wonder we have so many good athletes in TX. My husband is a coach and teacher, and it is amazing the difference between Texas athletics and those elsewhere. It is virtually non-existent here in NC. We went to watch a high school football game (standing by the side of a non-lit field in broad daylight with barely enough bleachers to seat the parents of the team, no less) and it looked like a second string middle school team out there playing. There is just no devotion to sports in the school systems here- everything is extra curricular or they pick it up in their club sports outside of school. Back home, we had a whole class period in school that was an athletics class and then had practice after school too!
