Leo and I had a BLAST enjoying the Texas Bowl on Friday. Our team, the University of Houston cougars, were defeated by Texas Christian University, but it was a great game and we had a wonderful time. We got to Reliant park early and walked around checking out the tailgater action. Although I didn't find my college booth (College of Technology), we did see a whole lot of people sporting their cougar pride and having a good time. The bands were in fine form making their way around the parking lot, and there was a general air of excitement. We had some really good seats, splurged on the Reliant stadium hamburger and fries special ($32 for two with drinks!) and enjoyed an exciting game that almost went our way, losing out on an opportunity to beat or tie the Horned Frogs in the last minute of the game. Leo and I had so much fun I wonder why this is the first time we've enjoyed a U of H game. Hopefully, it won't be the last!
