Maroon & White Spring Game, Kyle Field, April 14, 2018.

As the Texas A&M Maroon team at Kyle Field was trying for a last second, first-half 61 yard field goal (south to north). The attempt was short.
Standing under north goal cross-bar area was Heisman Trophy recipient Johnny Manziel (in flag football attire waiting for the half-time scrimmage with other former Aggie players).
Realizing the ball was considerably crossbar-short Johnny steps out, catches the ball on the run, and proceeds to sprint up field (as if returning a kick-off).
The crowd went absolutely bonkers.

A classical bit of Texas Aggie LORE.
Thanks Johnny.

And, ol' bop as present to witness the moment.

Seated on first deck West Kyle, first row, 45 yard line, with ah bunch "you know what's" Ag player liquid refreshment containers (placed on-the-track at a somewhat a close lower level...there directly in front of bop's prime location).

I wondered why there were so many uniformed police stationed around each of those highly visible containers--all scanning the crowd instead of watching the game in progress... Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

APPARENTLY THEY WERE EFFECTIVE IN ACCOMPLISHING THEIR MISSION...

bop had his Mahroooon spray-can paint ready but also spotted some tough looking plain clothed security on Kyle's west track.
They were all quite obvious.
Never looking at the game but always scanning the crowd (even eye-balling during the National Anthem).
Sad, sad situation at Kyle.
bop surrenders. GATORADE WINS !
(PepsiCo franchise has a firm lock on their product placement...now 30+ years)

Double standard example (insult to injury):
11/11/17 New Mexico brings BRIGHT RED Gatorade coolers to Kyle's west sideline but PepsiCo dictates A&M must always use Ugly Orange coolers !
