Hooray for Texas A&M for outscoring Duke last night. I did not think it was possible after the first half and went to bed because they were not going to show the bands. My favorite time always was the half-time. Why do they not show the half time? It irritates me when you have all of these “has beens” telling the audience what the teams should have done instead of letting us ladies see the festivities. How boring! Since my money and son went to University of Texas – my brother graduated from A&M – so I was supporting my brother’s team. Sadly, I missed an exciting game, but my better half did not give up on Johnny Football. He has noticed in the games this year that the thing lacking is “defense.” My better half having been a football player keeps telling the players on television – you are not truly tackling – you are just pushing and shoving – which is not true tackling – you gotta hold on to them. He cannot understand why the coaches don’t see this and correct it. I know there was one play where the A&M guy was just standing there watching the Duke player walking in for a score. Needless to say, there were a few choice words for that young man. So in the end, it looks like if you do not have a good defense – you just out-skill the other team by outscoring them which was good for A&M. But, in our eyes – it happened because Johnny Football did not give up on his A&M team!
