That was Jenny and I enjoying something of no heavenly value. Sometimes things that have no eternal value can be a lot of fun to experience. Last night was one of those things.
We saw it. We heard it. On an ESPN Latin American feed and an online radio station out of Midland. And we enjoyed it.
Clad in plastic armor and bearing their bovine and double consonant standards, our Red Raiders battled a valiant Texas football team to the last second. And in that last second sealed a victory for the ages on the South Plains.
Tomorrow, it's back to work, back to Spanish, to futbol and frijoles and the tasks before us. But today we take the advise of the teacher of Ecclesiastes, "So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad."
Way to go, Red Raiders. Thanks for that. It was a heck of a lot of fun.
