Friday evening Andrew got a call from his friend and co-worker Tom. Tom and his wife Jane have season tickets to A&M football. They were not going to be able to make it to the game Saturday so they wanted to know if Andrew and I would like to go. And of course the answer should be obvious….we said yes! We had actually been talking about wanting to go to a game, and this was the perfect opportunity.
This was our first A&M football game together so that was pretty neat. And this was our first game to sit on the other side of the stadium…and if anyone knows about football games in Aggieland, if you are on the student side you do not sit. You stand the entire game. So I mean we literally got to sit….and it was lovely. We were around some really fun, enthusiastic Ags who made the game interesting.
Upon arriving in College Station we went and ate at Wings ‘N More…a favorite place to Andrew and me. I mean, you can’t go to College Station and not eat there. It is just so delicious. I was feeling adventurous and tried the boneless wings instead of getting the old standby, chicken strips. They were good, but I admit that I really missed my chicken strips and honey mustard.
After dinner we headed over to our parking lot. Along the way we got to see and experience all the tailgaters. And oh my goodness! Those people do it right! They have their huge tents, big smokers, food galore and…get this…flat screen TV’s!!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes. They sit out there, set up their generators and satellite dishes and watch other games. Crazy people, crazy!
The game was fun, a little nail biting at times. I peppered Andrew with questions, hoping that I wasn’t annoying him. He assured me that I wasn’t. The only bad thing about the game were all the bugs! They were everywhere. And worse than that, they would dive bomb your face. I had several try to make a home in my hair….thankfully, none stuck around.
All in all, it was a great Saturday! Thanks Tom and Jane for the tickets!
