Football and Golf

This past week end we flew to Texas for the A&M-Rice football game.  This is the view I had back in the coach section of the plane…2014-09-13 002

I’m not sure what M was seeing in 1st class!!

Of course, we had to stop for a burger on our way to College Station…2014-09-13 004

We met the rest of the family in College Station and again ate hamburgers, but no pictures from there!

We walked into the stadium but stopped along the way…2014-09-13 011

After climbing to the 3rd deck and getting in our seats that we have had for 15 years.  We had to move when J was born to get an additional seat!  So he has never sat anyplace else in Kyle Field.

At the end of 18 holes, CHS was tied with WV with scores of 162…so it was off to a sudden death play off.  They have 3 girls on their team and we only have 2 but only 2 scores from each team counts.

They certainly had a gallery watching them!

They had to play 3 holes to determine a winner…CHS came in 2nd, but will play in the region next week.

That's still a great achievement to come in second at that level!!! Do you two really fly 1st and Coach? Is it because of his long legs or was it just a one-time thing? Just curious cuz it's really none of my business - - - except you mentioned it. Very interesting about having the same seats. Makes sense if you like them!!! Glad for the update again. Guess it means I need to get something back on mine.......

Mike got an upgrade with his seat when he checked in. Normally, he is back with me!
