Meltdown at the DePriest House

The Fighting Texas Aggies just lost to the Red Wolves of Arkansas State University. The final score was 18-14. The Ags missed 2 field goals and failed to punch it in with 2nd and goal from the 1. Don't bother calling because I am not answering the phone.

I blame myself. Sophie is not wearing her Aggie Cheerleader uniform. I figured we were playing ASU and the Ags wouldn't need the big guns. I don't think I will make that mistake again. Soph has tried to comfort me the only way a 4 year-old knows how. She gave me a big hug. I did feel better and the game didn't seem important anymore.

I will be ok in a little while. Probably not tonight, but definitely by tomorrow morning. If this had happened 10 years ago, I would have been in a funk for a week. I guess that is called "perspective". I just hope this whole season doesn't need a lot of this kind of perspective.

By the way, I wouldn't call Chip or Cable after this particular game. They haven't figured out this perspective thing yet. I hope your teams fared better this weekend.

Man, oh man, oh man...

This is the start of a beautiful season. Poor Kyle Field. Defiled once again.

Aren't I glad I'm a Razorback? ;)

Sweets,

I don't think I will be talking to you tonight either. Some time ago, you would have been affected by this too. I am just a little embarrassed for you.

BigDeal said...

Red Wolves are a force to be reckoned with. Keep your heads up.

I thank you.

Russ said...

O, how I wish that were true, bigdeal. Alas, I don't actually believe it. Thanks for the vote of support though.

Kritter Krit said...

Congrats, Bigdeal. Although, I wouldn't get too hyped up just yet. Maybe wait 'til you beat a team that doesn't suck to determine how awesome you are.

Because I have a feeling every team we play this year is going to be a "force to be reckoned with".

(Sigh.)

Cable said...

Please do not talk to me. More shame since the loss of the great one.

Hogs lucked out and actually won.

Kritter Krit said...

Cable,

Yeah. The Hogs stink too. I'm neck deep in Double-Stinkage. It could be a long, LONG season. Ugh.

Kritter

Just remind Russ that we should have Jackie back!!

The good ol Days....

Hey--just caught up on this post. I saw the upset (from Denmark) and was shocked. Long gone is the mystique of Kyle Field? Maybe it will resurge this weekend against the Hurricanes. You should get on Facebook and see the posts that some of these idiots from the "u" are making!

Take care--would love to hear from you. We're all thinking 'bout you, buddy!!
