Fighting Aggies!

So Rude and I were able to go to our first ever A&M football game against Arkansas State.  It was quite different in many ways from the UGA football games.  First, they have this large procession of horse and buggy and the corp of cadets (2nd largest corp after West Point).  Also, the students are all required to know several 'calls' or cheers that are given throughout the game which was facinating to watch.

Thanks to Rudy's department, we were lucky enough to sit in box seats which were air conditioned and catered!

The highlight of the entire night (since we are not really football people) was the band.  They were incredible.  Check out the video below of one of their formations.




Reveille, the mascot.
