Gator 2

Pardon the interruption, but this post is for a few of my followers that are Aggies....
Aggies are graduates (and those that love them) of Texas A&M University.
I married an Aggie in 1976.
He was in the Corps, and was a Gator 2 and a Ross Volunteer.
Last weekend was the 50th Anniversary of Gator 2.
So we were there .... all weekend.
We are at all the home football games...
but you knew that...
He also participated in the Rally to the Guidons on Saturday which means the "old Ags" (corp) can march-in to Kyle Field again. So for the first time in 38 years, Dear Husband got to march-in..... along with 699 other old Ags that signed up. President Bush 41 was there, too! Of course, he and Barb (see her below) have an apartment on campus. His presidential library is at A&M. President Bush was recognized as the first Honorary Lifetime Member of the Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets Association
The Secret Service guys were pretty obvious in the crowd.
And ... as long as we are here...
a shout out to Kathleen...
We beat Texas Tech!
And when the Ags win, the Fish (freshmen Corps) carry the Yell Leaders
and dump them into the Fish Pond.
(you can click on these if you want to see better)
I considered doing an entire post on Visor Guy.
But then I googled him and realized there is enough on him out there already!
Yes, he is to our left in the stands each game.
Gig em, Aggies!
