Here is a picture of Flint with the tower in the background. We have a little inside joke about the tower. I can't reveal from whom the joke derived, but I can let you in on a little fact... The tower will light up "when they win the national championship this year"!
This is Frank Broyles and Darrell Royal at the coin toss. Two legends!
I must give Texas some props. They were much better tailgaters this go-around and their new stadium was impressive. However, we are still not in the SEC and I miss that! Their stadium was not even full and they are #8 in the country!!! WHAT?!?! Okay, I have one more funny story. We were given tickets by Flint's best friend, Peter. So, of course, we are sitting in the Texas section, which as I mentioned before a) we did not have a lot to shout about and b) we were in the shade. So this was fine by me. We did have three Razorback fans sitting about four rows behind us and a drunk Longhorn fan one row in front of us. Flint and I sat quietly and took our butt whooping, but the Hog fans behind us were cheering their little hearts out! The Longhorn fan was consistently trying to get his fellow, surrounding fans to get more into the game. Without any luck he stands up and shouts how pathetic Texas fans are and that the three Razorback fans were louder than all of them put together! Of course Flint and I loved this and were internally thrilled by the Texas fan's outward declaration! We couldn't agree more! That was probably the highlight of the day!
