    Yes. Just got back from Austin tonight beforer the storms hit. I think the tornado warning was around the downtown Dallas, so we just missed it.

    I'm actually straight north (Frisco), so nothing near me.

    TOUCHDOWN, THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Got back from a surprisingly easy night at work to see the 2011 replay was on. That might never get old.

    Moments later the entire thing was nearly ruined by a dumb Wxman celebrating too much and nearly falling off the north scoreboard.

    A report from yesterday at the Blank Park Zoo Night Eyes event, it seemed a little down this year. There were not as many vendors handing out candy and they were confined to just a small part of the zoo instead of throughout. There were about 8-10 B-list Star Wars (can't believe I spelled that wrong in my post the other day) characters like storm troopers, tie fighter pilots and empire officers for pictures. The most major character was a larger Boba Fett, who my wife and I renamed Boba Fatt. There were only 2 bouncy houses this year too, one for younger kids and one for older/rowdier kids. It was kind of a letdown but the kids still had fun.

    My only complaint about the candy is that they didn't seem to enforce a non-nut option or a teal colored bowl. Thankfully, there was enough further down the line it worked out.

    They never have been good at the non-nut options in my years going, unfortunately. When were you guys there?

    I put the camera down and we were celebrating like everyone else. Wxman was a dumb ass and jumped on his co-workers back push him against the railing. Thankfully it all worked out and we did not land on a sousaphone.

    After that we chilled out some and decided to head down. Dropped our stuff in the office and went to the locker room.

    My only regret from that night is that I didn't keep rolling after the final play. Since neither TV or OSU were up there that game only two of us had that view and it was awesome.

    We went Saturday afternoon. Just in time to see the Paw Patrol and some of the animals. We looped the candy loop twice.

    I've REALLY pondered hard about getting a version of that shirt for my husband. Not sure if he would wear it to Thanksgiving at his mom's.

    I remember getting sandwiched between people as they rushed down to the field. My feet lost contact with the bleachers/concrete at one point.

    I absolutely wore it for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. :D

    We stayed in our seats and watched, loving every minute of the field rush. If we had joined in it probably would have resulted in a Randy for me. After the stands were more emptied, we wandered onto the field and down to where we could get a good shot of the scoreboard.

    And to think I almost left at half time. Parents weren't too thrilled about waiting around for 4.5 hours.

    It's crazy to think that game was 8 years ago. I'm one of the younger members here, but it is weird to think I was still in grade school when that game took place.
