Our First UT vs. OU Football Game
This past Saturday we witnessed our very first UT vs. OU football game ever. Coming from California, I never really had much interest for football. I've personally never gone or fully even watched an entire game. But I guess being in Texas and having friends at UT-Austin I had to at least watch one game, especially a game that was considered one of the most important in the season. So, we gathered at Pastor Manny's house decked out in our burnt-orange, Longhorn gear, and even the kids were all wearing UT shirts. As we all gathered to watch the game together in their living room, I realized something. Football is actually fun. Perhaps it was because I never gave it a chance or because Cal's football team wasn't really that good, but there was suspense, excitement, and the taste of victory that I never experienced back in Berkeley. Plus, as you can see from the picture of my friends jumping up and down in victory, neither have they. UT won the game that day, and I have come to understand why so many people love this sport.
