re: Will attendance at sporting events ever be the same? - TexasTiger08
Any given year, I will attend 30 MiLB/MLB games, about a dozen HSFB games, maybe 5 Spurs games, and around a half dozen CFB games, and the occasional junior hockey league game. I’ll also attend any NCAA Tourney sessions in Texas. Of those, I only got to go to HS games a couple of CFB games. The a...

re: Will attendance at sporting events ever be the same? - TexasTiger08
[quote]Depends on who you support. NFL and P5, sure. But FCS football, MiLB, junior hockey, or even High School sports are all very affordable, family friendly, and fun. [/quote] Exactly, I don’t think HS attendance was impacted that much for states that allowed a set percentage to enter. I know ...

[quote]figured I’d shed deeper light on the element of racism in the song[/quote] I’ve lived in Texas most of my life. Several family members, including my mother, graduated from UT. She was in the band as well. That song wasn’t performed with racist thoughts in mind. It was an old wound that had...

re: Will attendance at sporting events ever be the same? - TexasTiger08
I’m confident it will revert back to pre-Covid status, and I am a negative person. People are getting more and more tired of being restricted from these means of entertainment, but protests and things like that can draw out masses with no interruption. Eventually, watching games on TV with ze...

re: Emails show wealthy alumni supporting “Eyes of Texas” threatened to pull donations - TexasTiger08
The specific issue with the song is mind-boggling. Are the lyrics racist? Is it just the phrase that Robert E Lee said that is racist? Or have we reached the point where music notes and specific melodies are racist?...

[quote]Dominate through the schedule and then gets [b]rolled[/b] in the tourney.[/quote] During their run, they’ve been consistently more successful in March than anybody in the Pac-12. They’ve been bounced in the Round of 64 three times, same as Duke. Kentucky has only been out in that round onc...

re: Convinced the wife to let me drag her to Great Lakes area... - TexasTiger08
She loves traveling. She’s never been to that area of the country though, and doesn’t seem that drawn to it. She’s been out West a bunch and loves it, for obvious reasons. I’ve tried to convince her that on almost any road trip, you can find some awesome stuff....

Convinced the wife to let me drag her to Great Lakes area... - TexasTiger08
We are gonna road trip. I want to see my Indians in Cleveland and catch a game in Detroit on my quest to get all 30 stadiums in. She’s a big national park fan, so I figure Mammoth Cave and Cuyahoga Falls are easy to hit up along the way. I don’t think going way up into Michigan would be in the wo...

[quote]Let's see how they do in the tourney. Beating up west coast teams isn't that much of an overall accomplishment.[/quote] Doing that for over 20 years is a damn good accomplishment. This has gone on longer than Bama’s or North Dakota State’s FB dominance. Making the Tourney that many tim...

re: Have NBA jerseys lost the traditional look? - TexasTiger08
City series are hit and miss. Pels and Nets have actually grown on me a bit. But those aren’t marquee franchises. Those teams can throw out different looks, but it’s not the same as Lakers or Celtics abandoning their normal looks....
