One of the annual rites of each year's upcoming Texas Longhorns football season is the release of the Preview Magazine from Inside Texas. I won't comment on the advertisement for grape flavored vodka, but as usual, Clendon and the guys have put out a quality product.
The sunburn that remains on my arms this Monday evening reminds me that it was hot Saturday afternoon. Real hot. The weather report said the high was in the mid-90's, but it felt like it was at least ten degrees hotter than that. And, the official attendance of 101,144 is a bit confusing. There were certainly never that many in the stands at any one time. It's possible that several tens of thousands of people were hiding in the shade under the stands, however. And a huge percentage of the people who were there left at the half. I can't say I completely blame them. For a while, I wasn't sure I would make it all the way to The Eyes of Texas. Fortunately, the Wife shamed me into manning up.
