Morning Pop's and all youse other 'uns! Youse know who yew are!!!
Great day to stay in. Looks like slow rain all day and lot's of football on tap. One of the local grocery stores in town has taken to making fresh guacamole on the weekends for football games and it's really good. Got a nice supply last night and fresh chips. Going thru my last tamales from Tellez tamales in San Antonio, which we loaded up on last winter when we were in SA! Bring on the games!!!
Speaking of games, was following my alma mater yesterday evening on BSPN scoreboard, as the fightin' Bearkats of Sam Houston State were playing Eastern Washington for the right to meet N. Dakota in Frisco,Texas in January for the FCS National Championship. It was on ESPNU, but we didn't get it here. Anyway, I found out the halftime score was 35-0,SHSU! Final was 45-42, SHSU, who barely hung on after leading by 35! Talk about going into a prevent defense.....that almost prevented them from winning. Gotta give Eastern Washington a lot of credit.
Sam was rated about the 5th or 6th seed because of three losses this year. They played about 7 or 8 games on the road, and two of them were against Baylor.....and Texas A&M after A&M had beaten Alabama. Of course Johnny Football did his thing, even trying to kick a PAT. That's sorta rubbing it in.
Ought to be interesting in Frisco on January 5th! Darn tickets are starting at around $200. We'll be in Texas then, but the temptation to go is offset by the bucks to get in.
