Gummy Goodness

Texas 38, Baylor 7 

Oct. 28, 2017 • McLane Stadium, Waco

For years we had watched Baylor’s new football home take shape, its skeleton rising above the Brazos each time we passed it as we headed down (or up) I-35. McLane Stadium opened in 2014, but the first time the Horns played there in ’15, we were busy and couldn’t make the drive. Seeing a game in this “House That RGIII Built” was a long time coming.

So was this win. After back-to-back losses against those teams from the land of land thieves, it was good to take this big W from Waco.

Hook ’em!

What a beauty! Our seats in the north end zone gave us a gorgeous view of the Brazos and the Baylor campus just beyond the big scoreboard.

After the game, Dede headed home while I went south for a church reunion the next day. So nice to follow the football truck for part of the way!

A Brief History of Hook ’Ems

27 Jun

When Harley Clark, the creator of the “Hook ’Em, Horns” hand sign, died in October 2014, I posted a Facebook album in tribute.

To archive those photos (plus a few more favorites), I’m posting them here, too. Presenting, a brief history of “hook ’ems” in our family photos.
