Are you ready for some football?

Are you ready for some football?  I am, but alas, I will have to enjoy watching other schools today because Tech doesn't play until tomorrow.  Yep, Sunday.  What's up with that? 

I don't know what to think about this season.  We don't have our Pirate Captain this year.  He's going to be providing entertainment on CBS Sports.  I'm curious to see how things go with Tuberville.  I'm already not liking his call about our starting quarterback, but I'm trying to stay positive.  Leach has been quoted as saying this was going to be the best returning team of his 10 years at Tech.  I hope that is true and it plays out that way.  In fact, he said it was better than our team that reach #2 in the Nation two seasons ago.  Fingers crossed!

I don't have any plans to make the trip out to Lubbock this year for a game, but I do plan to travel to College Station for the Tech vs. A&M game in late October.

Another byproduct of Football season is shopping.  You know shopping for all your game day gear, as I demonstrated at Canton with my cute hat purchase.  I know it isn't just me because I got series of e-mails/texts from friends saying "How can I get one of those?".

Old Navy surprisingly is jumping on the Football/Shopping bandwagon this year.  They have collegiate t-shirts for men, women and kiddos.  Jennifer discovered them at our McKinney Old Navy on Thursday and called to tell me, but she also reported all they had in Tech shirts for Women were extra small.  So on the way home from Canton, Lisa and I stopped at the Old Navy in Mesquite by Town East Mall because we figured there wasn't a college graduate within a 10 mile radius of that store, so they were likely to not be sold out.  Sure enough!  Full stock!  I got a cute-enough Tech t-shirt.

Something else has me excited...I recently discovered that Arthur Court has expanded their Collegiate line to include Texas Tech!  It may not be super new, but all I've ever seen up until now is Texas and OU.  They also have A&M now too.  I need this stuff like I need a hole in the head, but it's so fun!

(Hey Arthur Court, those napkins are looking suspiciously Aggie Maroon)

Happy Football!  Happy Shopping!
