October is upon us...
wonder if they ever mislabel the queen
Hallelujah! Launch day is finally here! I am bursting with pride to announce that Marooned in Aggieland: A Bumbling Brit Discovers College Football, Guns N' Waffles is now available to order...
Texas Two Step
1. Work Hard
Being an especially green newcomer to Aggieland, I'm still getting my bearings about me. The color maroon is rapidly growing on me and I'm gradually getting accustomed to being greeted by perfect strangers in the grocery store. Anyone who knows me wouldn't peg me for a sports fan, but my heart swelled with its first touch of team spirit when my toddler recently flashed a thumbs-up at her first Aggie game with an enthusiastic, "Gig 'em, Aggies!"
Parson's Mounted Calvary
Netflix has made original, exclusive TV shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black a major part of its content strategy over the last few years, and now the company has a new piece of...
This is the "Spirit of '02" then
the 75mm field gun traditionally fired at A&M games.
In the 1970s cadets out on bonfire cut found the gun buried near the trees they were felling like a time capsule from earlier A&M cadets
The gun was a 1902 field canon
It was carefully restored and now is a fully functional field gun just like 112 years ago when it was minted.
And now it is getting hoisted by a crane atop the se corner of the stadium.
Still photography and commercial filming would also have to meet certain criteria.
Corporal Ryan Kreider and Reveille VIII sawing the horns off probably pre "play of the game"
Sounds like he said they are marching 360 (so that would be 12x30 block) with 3 Drum majors so 363
So probably about 60 alternates or so sitting this one out. My understanding is the band has 426 members or so. and capped it at 126 fish (21 per outfit) with 17 fish or so turned away because there was just no more room at the inn.
The constraint in this case is rooms in Dorm 11 and Dorm 9
My guess is every room has is filled. And if anybody quits the 17 who were turned away can join. Makes it tough to march every game anymore.
I did that but in those days it was a struggle to maintain 267 (12x22 block). Also the band was 4 outfits instead of six. And was all of Dorm 11 but only the first stoop of Dorm 9.
I like the "Pay it Forward" theme
After years of Lassie saving humans, the favour is finally being returned...
Reveille XIII is retiring after this school year. National search is on conducted by 12 member committee to find a collie puppy to become Reveille IX.
You know it's #BeatFlorida week when they have edible gators at the dining hall 🍴

I think Alabama should watch out for the upset...

Two freshmen make all the difference for Aggie defense
It's interesting to compare the social media sites on Google Trends to see how they're doing. Twitter and Facebook dwarf all the others, so I'm not going to dwell on them (but see discussion further below). What's fascinating...
Bull Sharks and GoPro
I did find the pre game performance amusing
They pretended to have researched their opponent and proceeded to thank them for guarding the oceans with the ships
Oh sorry that is the Navy
We meant thanks for flying all those airplanes all over the world
That's Air Force?
Well hurrah for the Few and the Proud then
Oh yes, we meant the Army. Thanks to the Army.
So they covered all the services and made a decent joke out of it too in fine stanford tradition
Oh the places you will go with music
They had to feature Charles Woodson since he is the only defender to win the Heisman in recent memory
The Linebackers and the Lockdown corners usually do not have TDs and gaudy stats
They totally affect the game and change the way the offense schemes but it is hard to see that impact on the stat sheet
I kept trying to find the guy in the band playing Air Guitar
This week the tree was a Palm
It's not a doll, man, it's an action figure.
The room at the end looks like my office
Guess Baylor win win this weeks attendance bowl over Yell
(They lost last week)

The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets are getting some much needed renovations to their dorms and the quad area. Thanks to the recent decision and support from the Texas A&M System, what was supposed to be a 12 year project will be done in the next two years. ;
