    Suggestions for a Horns Fan

    Clone Chronicles: Sitting Down with the Enemy: Burnt Orange Nation

    Ryan from LonghornRoadTrip.com is driving up to Ames today and he wanted some suggestions on stuff do to in Ames that doesn't involve getting completely hammered. I suggested the old favorite in Hickory Park, but I'm sure he'd like more suggestions than I can provide. If anyone could comment in my thread on the blog, or here, I'll put up a link to this thread.

    Thanks!

    Is there a home wrestling meet tonight? Also is Ames HS in town? That is a fun team to watch.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Hockey games are always a good time ... but I think there was heavy drinking there too

    Not since they stopped allowing beer in the new arena.

    I don't think that they sell beer at the new hockey arena.

    Unless he's never had Texas BBQ, I doubt he'll be too impressed with Hickory Park; other than the fact that you get about 5 lbs of food for $7. I don't think HP can hold a flame to real Texas-style bbq.

    I would say the wrestling meet would be his best bet.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    Wrestling is a great idea. Most Texans think this is wrestling:



    Go Clones!!
    Gig 'em Aggies!!
    Saw 'em off!!
