First and foremost, I’m a shit of a son who forgot to call my mom and sister on their b-day yesterday. Sadly, this is the second time I’ve done this. No excuses… not good enough on my part.
The remainder of the weekend was great. The A&M campus is really awesome on game day. While I’ve not been to the other joints who claim to be the best, I would bet Aggieland would rank pretty high; at least yesterday they did. I actually expected a larger crowd at the game but it was pretty oppressive in Kyle Field even with the “cold front” that came in the previous evening. I can’t imagine what it would’ve been like without it though.
Perhaps the best part of the visit there was checking out the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium inside McFerrin Athletic Center. We ate lunch inside on the bleachers with all of about 10 people in there with us. Being somewhat of a track nerd, this was pretty badass.
Out in the lobby area is where they’ve racked their National Championship trophy’s as well as Jessica Beard’s Bowerman trophy from last year, which is totally rad.
And then there was this… a creepy-ass old Penn Relay plaque. I’ve watched the Penn Relays more than a few times but I’ve never seen this. Now, tainted.
Overall, a good trip. Of course, it’s all ruined b/c of my failure at being even remotely close to a decent human being! Dammitall!
