The return of college football

I love football, especially the gloriousness that is Aggie football. Walking into Kyle Field for the first home game of the season is like magic - 80,000 dressed in maroon, 12th man towels in hand, just waiting for the first kick off. There's really nothing like it anywhere in the world.

The great thing about Aggie football is that the 12th man, every Aggie in the stands, is just as much a part of the team as those on the field. We stand the entire game, representing our support and willingness to play if ever needed, we sing the war hymn and put our arms around strangers next to us because we're all family in Kyle Field, and every Friday we go to the field at midnight to practice yells and get ready for the next day's game. There are many schools with great tradition, but none that compare to Texas A&M.

Midnight Yell.

My dad who taught me everything I know about football. Love you Dad.

Gotta love standing the whole game.

Singing the war hymn.

What it's all about.
