High School Football

Highlights from Game Day:

The rest of us had navy blue Allen Eagles t-shirts, but TCD likes to make a fashion statement, so instead of the traditional blue or red, she opted for the PINK jersey for the game tonight complete with #19 already on it.  (This is actually a Miles Austin jersey, but since The Cowboys are NOT on the list of STUFF we love in our house, we had no problem doctoring the back of the jersey a little.)

A-Rod's Family


Guess who made the first TD of the SEASON!  Yep, Andrew Rodriguez!  The announcer said his name pretty much all night long.  
"Pass intended for Andrew Rodriguez."  
"Touchdown, Andrew Rodriguez."  
"Andrew Rodriguez on the carry."  
The guy is kind of a rockstar.

 In between amazing offensive plays, we were totally and completely entertained by Andrew's little nephew, Giovanni.  What a cutie!  

There was NO WAY I could get a picture of the entire band from where we were seated on the 50 yard line.  
They're HUGE...ENORMOUS!   
Nearly 800 band members rode 21 buses to get to the stadium.  There is really no way to describe the massive sound they produce.
They were spelling out EAGLES in this picture, but only the G fit in my lens.  :)
Amazing, loud, was very cool to watch Andrew, but the band was still my favorite part. 

Mack being silly with his crazy friends.

 More touchdowns, and more A-Rod in the second half.

Final Score!!  Go EAGLES!!

We had such a great time.  We were exhausted and sweaty, and we didn't get home until after midnight, but I think we might be hooked on this Texas high school football thing.  
Guess where we'll be next Friday night???
