Game Day

Today, boo, my homegurl and I went to the Baylor vs Texas Tech game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Lemme tell you not only does that damn stadium look massive on the outside but it looks even more massive on the inside. The House that Jerry Jones Built is a gargantuan building. See look for yourself!!

Being that I’m a Texans fan, I have to say that shit is impressive!! Like I can even front or hate. Jerry’s World is an a ma zing building. And that display screen!!!!! My gawd that has to be the biggest thing I’ve ever seen. hahahaha that’s what she said. Sorry mind in gutta. Like this screen is… It’s… Lawd have mercy. I know e’ry damn thang in Texas is bigger but that screen!!! Ugh loooooook at it!!!

That mess is… I’m speechless. I have no words whatsoever about that screen. Um um um my lawd!

Okay sorry moving away from the screen now because obviously I could easily go on and on about that damn screen.

Aside from gawking at AT&T Stadium, it was a great day. We literally sat in the nosebleeds and lemme tell you those seats were the most uncomfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. I was okay for the first and second quarter but then my legs started to hurt beyond what I could usually tolerate. There just wasn’t enough room to stretch out. I think Boo is right if we do this again we will definitely have to splurge for better seats or at least seats that do not require to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Such a ratchetly long hike. R A T C H E T!!

The good news is Baylor won. The bad news is the QB for Texas Tech is a baaaaaaaaaaad man! First of all, he’s a freshman. Secondly, that kid threw for more than 500 yards today. Thirdly, he can schlang da rock like its a piece of paper. I dunno where Kliff Klingsbury found that kid but he best keep him around all four years because he’s going to be Tech’s ticket to greatness!

Now I know I’m praising Tech but I can’t even front. The Baylor defense sucks. It sucks so bad there aren’t enough negative words in the dictionary to describe the level in which Baylor defense sucks. They missed simple textbook fundamental tackles. Coverage was blown every which way. And they allowed four too many touchdowns. Not that I thought Tech would be a rollover but they gave Baylor more than a solid run for their money. Tech made Baylor look like the University of Kansas. I don’t mean to insult KU even though I can’t stand them but there’s a reason why they’re last in the Big 12 Conference. The way Baylor was playing you’d think the team was reverting back to the Coach Steele era. Baylor fans you remember that debacle!

Ugh and Bryce Petty left the game due to concussion like symptoms. Sean Russell did well but he didn’t do as well as he has in previous weeks. It was just a horrible and embarrassing game. Gawd I hope Baylor cleans up their act because next weekend we play Kansas State who’s been WAITING to tap some Baylor ass all season long.

At this point Baylor gon need everything short of a miracle in order to get to the playoffs. They have to play smart and precise football. That means less mistakes and far less penalties! Gawd those damn mutha fuckin penalties are just a thorn in our side. If we can cut down on the team penalties and force the our opponents to make more mistakes, we’d be golden. Sigh yeah we’ll see how that goes next week.

May the odds forever be in Baylor’s favor. May they forever be in our favor.

Travel Day

Today, Boo and I drove up to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to see our homegurl from Baylor and go to the Baylor/Texas Tech game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Yes folks we’re going to the house Jerry Jones built. I’m a little weary about going into Cowgirl Central but hey I get to see my Baylor Bears play live and in living color.

While seeing Baylor play is exciting, lemme just tell you guys how incredibly arduous driving from Houston to Dallas!!! Lawd have mercy on my legs and my truck cuz that drive was a mutha fucka!!! Not only is the drive long, it was especially long today because it was über windy. The wind was blowing so hard my truck felt like it was going to blow off the road. It also felt like we were driving into the wind. Ugh what a pain in the ass. There were a couple of accidents too. Um I would like to state that an accident along a two lane major highway is the worst thing ever. You ain’t got nowhere to go! The shoulders are fairly non existent.

Pain. In. Da. Ass.

Anyway we hur bitches. The hotel room is pretty wicked tho.

It’s a loft style hotel room!! For the price, I’m very impressed with the room. The hotel looks very schwanky and modern. Very very schwanky!!

It’s been a while okay only since March since the last time Boo and I made a road trip anywhere. The last time we hit the road was to visit my sister for her birthday/going away weekend which was absolutely the best time ever. How I wish she was still in Texas but she’s doing great and wonderful things in Cali at the moment. So I’m not too sad about her not being here.

This weekend is mildly bittersweet because it’s been YEARS since we’ve seen our friend as well as a Baylor football game. My years at Baylor were not as great as I had hoped they would be. Murphy’s Law was in full affect from freshman year to the day I graduated in 2002. I could’ve done better in school and focused more than I did but I was young and away from everything remotely Podunkville, USA related. I didn’t have to worry about anything or anyone except me. Yeah well that sorta backfired on me and is for another more depressing post.

Sorry no more Debbie downer for me!!

This weekend should be fun. You best believe ima be dancing my ass off when BUGWB plays. And screaming obscenities with da homie. Hopefully we’re not sitting near any old holier than thou bitties. That would be unfortunate… for them! I’ll never see them again so I don’t cur one bit. We leave Sunday to go home and to visit the Baylor campus. Lawd that’s gonna be trippy. So many areas on and around campus have changed since I graduated and the last time I visited which was in 2007.

I can’t wait until tomorrow. I hope to have pictures for you guys. Hope you all are enjoying your Thanksgiving long weekend. If you have to work, I’m sorry! I’ll have fun for you. =)
