As I sit here writing this, Kay and I are getting things ready to load up and head to Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas and Dallas Cowboy Stadium for the 75th Annual Cotton Bowl.
This year features our fabulous 11th ranked LSU (10-2, 6-2) vs 17th ranked Texas A&M (9-3, 6-2), and we will be there to witness it! All because my wife does not take no for an answer.
From the date that it was announced that LSU would be playing in the Cotton Bowl it was reported that ticket sales were completely sold out.
My beautiful and wonderful wife did not accept that and placed a call to Texas Stadium and through conversation indicated that I was a disabled veteran. Well immediately tickets became available. Now I am beginning to feel honored for my Vietnam Era service time. Not only did we get great seating, but also were able to secure a great parking spot as well and all of this for the going price and not some inflated pricing that is going on out there for tickets.
Not only will we be at the game on Friday night, but we will also be able to visit with our 8 grandchildren in the area and with our two sons who also reside in the area with their families. What a wonderful 2d Anniversary Present this will be! We will be staying at a hotel in the Arlington area, approximately 6 miles from Cowboy Stadium.
Will also be doing some tailgating prior to the game, if you get the time and can find us just come on by and enjoy a cold soda and some awesome tailgating food! We will be looking for you to come by, but please bring your own chair only have two and they will be taken. ;D
Now wouldn’t you agree that this is an awesome way to start 2011? We would and are!
Watch for us on the television, we will be the ones on the LSU side, in the upper area around the 10 yard line. It will be easy to spot us as we will be the ones with the BIG heads and smiling faces.
See on the tube! GEAUX LSU!!
