My dad: "Well, Papa...did it look as bad from where you were sitting as it did from where I was sitting?"
Papa: "Steve, there wasn't a seat in Texas that made ANY of THAT look good."
Touché, Papa. Touché. The good news about playing at the Cotton Bowl is the ability to express your emotions (good or bad) through food consumption and let me tell you, we did not disappoint! Enjoy our happier times at the TX/ou game and the fried goodness that is the State Fair of Texas!
We bought food/drink tickets the minute we walked through the gate. A) because apparently everyone needed a corny dog for breakfast and B) because we knew the lines would be crazy long after the game. This wasn't our first rodeo...
It was almost 10am...the perfect time for a Fletcher's corn dog, right? Let me just say, I cannot stand corn dogs or hot dogs. But there is something about a Fletcher's corn dog at the fair that is second to none. They are delicious!!
The Texas Star! The tallest ferris wheel in North America.
Happier times. Ha! We took all of the smiling pictures before the beating started.
The Longhorn Band's pre-game performance was awesome! The flag looked great and they spelled out Texas on the field.
The atmosphere at this game is electric! Some of my most fun memories from college football games have all come at the Cotton Bowl for Texas/ou games!
After the game we needed to drown our sorrows so Dave headed for round 2...
