Gig 'Em Aggies

Michael here (yes, I do blog occasionally). The extended family had some extra tickets for the Texas A&M-Montana St game. So, Charlotte, Rehm and I headed to Aggieland with Grandma and Grandpa. The game was ok- the Aggies looked alright for the 1st game of the year, though not as sharp as you'd like against a Division I-AA team. Rehm didn't like the noise from the cannon (that is shot after each Aggie td) or the flyover from the fighter planes after the national anthem. So, he spent a lot of time looking like this:

Of course, after the game he said his favorite things were...the planes and the cannon!

Charlotte loved her Aggie overalls, getting kisses whenever the Aggies score and singing the Aggie War hymn.

Both kids loved their snowcones and watching the band march at halftime.

At one point in the game, Rehm was standing next to me and in front of his seat. The Montana St coach was out on the field arguing about some call and the man a couple of people over yelled, "Aww, sit down already!!" Rehm dropped into his seat like he'd been shot :) The man was very apologetic and explained to him that he was yelling at the coach.

Later, Rehm looked at me and said, "I wish there were designated smoking areas in Kyle Field. " I, along with the woman sitting on the other side (wife of the man yelling at the coach) looked at him in bewilderment. "Why?"I asked, "Are you thinking of lighting up?" He had no such intentions...he just thought it would be nice for the people who wanted to smoke to have a place where they could. How compassionate (in a completely politically incorrect way!)

Overall, a wonderful time staying up way past bedtime!

Can you tell that Rehm's mom was raised in NC? On a farm, that raised tobacco? And her parents worked for *gasp* a tobacco company?

That was hysterical. I feel like I was there. The kids look adorable.

Both of them look absolutely adorable - no fish camp will be needed when they get their acceptance letters. Gig 'em!

Did you stay for the entire game? All four hours 3 OT of it??

Jenn, are you talking about my parents, too? LOL! They met while working at Lorillard. ;)

Shelly, it was last week's game against Montana State, not this week's game against Fresno. The MS game didn't start until 6:00pm so we had TIRED kids the next day.

Karen, glad I'm not alone. RJReynolds in my family.
