Thanksgiving Night

ESPN is reporting that ABC will telecast a prime time college football game every Saturday night. ABC also controls the annual A&M vs. t.u. football game, as they want to broadcast it nationally Friday after Thanksgiving in the afternoon. This is a perfect time to move the game back to Thanksgiving Night, the way it should be played, and ABC can telecast it. You will never convince me that they can sell a Friday after Thanksgiving afternoon telecast over a Thanksgiving night telecast.

Cello's and Hot Dogs

One of the great things about living in New York is the different things you can do. Wednesday night we went to the Yankees vs. Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium and last night we went to Yo Yo Ma at the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall. Both events were fun, although different. No one got thrown out of the symphony.

Yo Yo Ma plays a cello from the 1700's. I was thinking it would be cool if his cello was like Willie Nelson's guitar. For instance it had a hole in it and everyone he had played with signed it. That'd be cool.

Back to baseball, I can't decide if the fans care more about the game or about being obnoxious.

Jarrin' John

John Kimbrough passed away this week in Haskel, TX, his hometown. Mrs. Bubba's graddadder, who passed away in Feb. was also from Haskel and he knew John, but wasn't running buddies with him.

Anyway, he was an Aggie legend and played on A&M's only national championship team in 1939. Mickey Herskowitz has a great column in the Houston Chronicle about Jarrin' John and SWC football back in the 1930's.
