I thought Friday Night Lights might be different here. Nope.
I guess it’s true about Texas and high school football. Everywhere you go the stands are filled with fans and the players are on the fields. Cheerleaders cheer, dance teams dance, players play and spirit groups keep spirits up. Alma maters are played and fight songs performed and the fans chant traditional sayings that keep people on their feet.
Since it’s late summer in Texas the night air blows hot and sticky. Lucky for us last week a storm blew through, and while that meant an hour-long lightning delay, it also meant a nice cool breeze blowing for the duration of the game.
I love high school football. I thought it might be different, but it’s not.
I’m a fan for life.
And while I still bleed black and gold, adding purple to the mix is a good thing. ❤️
