Sunday will be rough... first day of Red Raider football!!! And I will have to watch it on the couch. I've had season tickets every year since 2004. I wanted season tickets this year but I could never truly justify it. Abilene is ONLY 2.5 hours away from Lubbock... why didn't I just go for it?
I don't know if it's actually the game that I love. It's the environment that has always been my favorite thing about football. I love the feeling that comes over the entire city on game day. I love that everyone wears the exact same color and that it is acceptable to wear fake tatoos on your face. There's something so exciting about parking 5 miles from the stadium and walking across campus. People everywhere. The smell of bbq. Scorching hot games followed by freezing your booty off games. Love love love. I can't even talk about this anymore.
