Our daughter Megan and her fiance Brandon are on their way to Arlington (outside of Dallas) to watch their beloved Texas A & M football team in the Cotton Bowl. The game is being played in the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium. The Aggies have played there earlier this year and Megan says it is “awesome.”
We are often asked “Why did a girl from California go all the way to Texas to attend a college she didn’t really know anything about?” Like most answers in life, this one is complicated. But part of the answer is this: she always wanted to attend a big college and have that big college experience – which includes football and, this year, a nationally televised bowl game.
So, if you watch the game be sure and look for Megan and Brandon in the stands. They’ll be the two in maroon shirts.
