We’re not just Poker lovers. We also love football, and last night we took a break to watch our favorite team the “Fightin’ Texas Aggie Football Team” defeat their long-time rivals, the “Red Raiders” of Texas Tech 45 to 40. Whoop!
It was a nail-biter, and it certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Ags prevailed, mainly because they stayed tough for all 4 quarters, stayed with their highly effective running game and made very few mistakes.There were plenty of players who came up big and left it out on the field, but the play that punched the second half curse in the stomach was Dustin Harris’ HUGE blocked punt and T-Fred taking advantage to run that ball in for a TD. The Ags finally had reason to celebrate in their locker room at the end of the game, and can now go into their game against Baylor and RG III at Kyle remembering how great it feels to win.
On our blog on Friday we announced that whoever predicted the score closest to the final score would be awarded a Texas A&M Game Room mirror and we had all kinds of predictions. The one who came closest was Vergel Gay, whose prediction was 41 A&M – 39 TTU. Congratulations, Mr. Gay! We will ship out your chosen prize . . . as soon as we determine that there were no manipulations like the ones we’ve all seen in the Buffalo Wild Wings commercials like the one featured below.
After a great football game there is nothing better than a good poker game with your friends. Maybe for our upcoming contest we will offer some poker chips for your next poker game.
