Have you been following the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Men’s Basketball team this year? I haven’t been paying that much attention. And why should I have been paying attention? Yes, a good Ag would follow his sports programs, but they’ve sucked at basketball for so long….. There really wasn’t any point in investing the time to stay up-to-speed with the program.
Before yesterday’s game against the Kansas Jayhawks the Aggies were sitting at 11-0. Let me repeat that. ELEVEN WINS AND ZERO LOSSES! That definitely warranted the “All Caps” I just threw down. The Ags made it through 2 months of the season without a loss. I think everyone, including myself, were expecting the Aggies to get throttled by Kansas. So last night when I hit espn.com to check the score and get a game recap I was pleasantly surprised to see the headline ESPN used for the game, “Texas A&M proves it’s for real in loss”. And sure enough, the Aggies were in it until the end. With 0:12 on the clock they were only down by 1.
I gotta say it, I sure am proud of the team so far this year. I’m actually going to actively seek out televised games to follow them a little better.
