The Aggie War Hymn is about Aggies wanting to beat Texas

The rivalry is enshrined in "The best little whorehouse in Texas" though Aggies typically do not dance around and sing quite like they are portrayed in the film (and the haircuts omg make it stop)

Notably Pluto did not have a chance to complete a complete orbit from the time it was discovered to when it was voted off the island and declassified as a planet.

Because Pluto orbits much further from the Sun than Earth, it takes much longer to orbit the Sun. In fact, Pluto takes 248 years to orbit the Sun. That's because Pluto orbits at an average distance of 5.9 billion km from the Sun, while Earth only orbits at 150 million km.

How Long Does it Take Pluto to Orbit the Sun?

Confirming what had been reported throughout the early morning hours, the SEC announced in a statement Wednesday that they have officially and unanimously approved Texas A&M as the conference’s 13th member. As had previously been reported, however, the approval comes with a very big proviso. Here’s the SEC’s statement, in its entirety: “After receiving unanimous…

Google car goes wrong way on a one-way, crashes

The driver of a Street View car in the Arkansas city crashed into another vehicle after going the wrong way down the one-way street, making a U-turn, then hitting a car on an adjacent street, according to a police report obtained by the Smoking Gun.

So no more 75mm canon fire when the Aggies score a TD inside the stadium Michael Percifield confirms.

So the logical fix for this issue is to upgrade to a 105mm howitzer just outside the stadium whose rapport can be heard for miles.

By the way, the shell Mike is holding is the smaller 75mm caliber

Quoting Michael

"To answer your question, as many have asked, due to the renovations at Kyle Field, the "Spirit of '02" has been retired from firing inside Kyle Field. It's almost impossible to effectively fire a field gun inside an enclosed facility, and do it safely... But, it will still be used on the Quad for Step-Off and will parade around Kyle for the March-In.

So, this coming season, we have graduated from a 75mm field gun up to a 105mm howitzer, which will be fired just outside of Kyle Field off the southeast corner across from Spence Park. Those outside should be able to tell when the Aggies have scored from downtown Bryan..."

For anyone who does not know Kyle Field and Spence Park are in College Station and Bryan is the adjacent city miles away

Except for rooting for the Cowboys since 1990 or so I was a fair weather fan

I was for the Steelers in the 70s

I was a fan of Joe Montana and the 49ers in the 80s

Then I switched to the Cowboys in the early 90s and about the only bandwagon I did not jump on was becoming a Patriots fan

As I recall this cake mold had a plastic superman crest and face and also a batman creast and face so depending on how you frosted it you could go either way

Texas A&M's 'fish camp' will be the biggest ever

If anyone can bond instantly with hundreds of other people, it's a college freshman.


Texas A&M University's entering class will get a chance to try it in the annual Fish Camp starting Aug. 1.
