On Thursday December 30th at 11 am Army played SMU in the Armed Forces Bowl. The bowl is ordinarily held at TCU’s stadium in Fort Worth, but they were busy being lame (TCU is SMU’s rival – I can’t resist) … so the game was instead held at SMU.
My parents decided that since SMU is my alma mater, and Army (aka The United States Military Academy) is my dad’s – we’d go see the game and visit Dallas.
SMU v TCU, September 10, 2005 – TCU was ranked and we beat them
For every bit of crazy I look, I was that happy about SMU beating TCU. It was a good day.
SMU v Army? Not a good day.
I was surrounded by Army fans
And … SMU lost … to a bunch of Militants
(“Raise your hand if you eat bullets.”)
SMU fans string up dummies of our own players … that’s encouraging??
SMU’s mascot is a mustang … but come on buddy …
On the plus side, Lt. Dan was there performing
And a fish-man scared me
