Bigger in Texas.....

WOW, that's about all I can say about my experience today. I am completely impressed with Longhorn Football.....So we ventured out today to our first UT game...and let me tell you, it was awesome....We were up in the nosebleeds but still, the people, the stadium, the atmosphere, everything about it was just over the top....the stadium is HUGE....not as big as the Rose Bowl, but still HUGE.....it holds 94k or so, not a seat in the house empty.....and it had the biggest jumbo screen I have ever seen...

"The scoreboard is the nation's largest high-definition video display board thanks to DAKtronics. The $8-million Prostar Video Board is 55 feet high by 134 feet wide and will offer complete flexibility, with the capability to show one large single video image, multiple video images, and a combination of live or recorded video with real time scores and stats, out of town game information, sponsors' messages, graphics and animation."

The twins did great....they even hiked up all those stairs.....and ramps.....and escalators....Lila got to ride on moms back (I am still in love with my Ergo Carrier)......they were all great for the 1st quarter.....Mom and Lila spent most of the 2nd quarter roaming around one of the lower decks as Miss Lila can be an antsy pantsy these days.......we left around 1/2 time and I must say I am proud of the girls for making it that long.....definitely a good warm up game for the Cougar/Baylor game coming up, which of course I hope they can all make it the whole game
