It’s Thanksgiving Day Nov 24, 2011, and it is time to polish off that turkey and concentrate on football. The excitement is mounting in this house and all over the state of Texas for the 2011 Lone Star Showdown between the Fightin’ Texas A & M Aggies and the University of Texas Longhorns. This will be the 118th meeting of the biggest rivalry in Texas, with 90,000 fans expected. And we will be there, part of the 12th Man, cheering on our Aggies in what will be the last game of this historic rivalry for the foreseeable future. Let’s go Aggies! Saw Varsity’s horns off and BTHO TU!!
I know we have said this before, but because we love football almost as much as we love poker we will be postponing our usual Thursday night game until Friday night. Regardless of the outcome of the football game, we’ll be back at our usual seats at the poker tables.
