Normally, I’m not a Texas football fan (Go Sooners!), but I am a huge supporter of two things:
1) The Big 12
2) Putting an end to the ridiculously long winning streak of USC’s football program. Hey, I’m sorry, but I can’t stand being a Big 12er in the land of Cardinal and Gold.
D and I watched the game at my cousin’s house, who happens to be a UT Law School alum. He and his wife have a 7-month-old baby girl who happened to be sleeping soundly in the room right below us. Obviously, the cardinal rule is DON’T WAKE THE BABY UP, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE. And if you do, YOU CAN NEVER COME BACK TO THIS HOUSE, ASSHOLE. Shit, the pressure! So when Vince Young ran in the winning touchdown on 4th down, the four of us looked like we had just won the $500,000,000 lottery at a freakish mime convention. Never have I seen four people produce such energy without making so much as a peep.
Man, we are baby pros already.
