Seasons Greetings from Texas!
Just in time for Christmas, they are tellin’ us that the weather will be in the 70s early this week then it should plunge to about 37 Friday night. Brrr, right? Well, down here we think cold weather – and all that “white Christmas” stuff – is overrated. The other day I had an eggnog with a little jalapeno in it and although it was downright awful, I didn’t mind. Because this is Texas, you know?
OK, I was counting the Bowl games comin’ this year and there are a bunch in Texas: the Alamo Bowl (San Antonio), the Armed Forces Bowl (Fort Worth), the Cotton Bowl (Dallas), the Sun Bowl (El Paso) and the Texas Bowl (Houston). And don’t forget the University of Texas vs. Alabama in the big Rose Bowl game, way in the future at Jan. 7. What the hell does this have to do with Christmas? Nothing – except that at Christmas time, people in Texas are thinkin’ football, not snow. Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and find yourself a Bowl game to go to. And stay away from jalapeno eggnog. Ho, ho.
