I love college football! Mostly I love it because it means getting together with friends, sporting your college spirit, and of course socializing and tailgates. We didn't tailgate today but we did get up and go to the filming of ESPN College game day on campus. It was pretty cool. I always love seeing Bevo and he actually posed for me, how sweet. When I was in school at UT it was always a treat when I got to see the large beast on campus. He is just so cool and I could learn a thing or two from him about staying calm. I do have a theory that he's always on xanax, but it's just a theory.
I love arts and crafts. I was mostly surrounded by kids and at least they didn't call me ma'am or anything. The munchkins made it look so easy and somehow, I felt their renditions and paintings of UT spirit were, well, good. I was focused on a creating a helmet but ended up with and angry looking hawk eating a waffle. I'll definitely stick to my day job.
This is Jigsaw. He is famous and infinitely cute sporting his longhorn spirit. Apparently he's been on David Letterman and I witnessed for myself his ability to go long for a pass and catch a football. It was impressive.
It's really nice that we live downtown and can just scoot between all the stuff we like to do! Parking is never a problem and tailgates, game day events, and eating out are always so close and convenient this way. I'm a lucky, lucky, girl.
After the ESPN event, we drove over to Katz's for a late breakfast. Marc Katz was kind enough to pose in a picture with me. He's always a jovial character and after discovering the Veggie Reuben at his place, I love coming to his restaurant. Did you know he is running for Lieutenant Governor? I think I had heard that before but hadn't remembered when he brought it up. Clearly I need to learn a little more about politics and maybe read the local paper! Apparently you can become a fan of his on facebook and follow his campaign. I hope to be able to attend some of his events and become more involved in Austin's political scene. I think I am grown up enough now to start becoming more poilitcally aware... maybe.
