Midnight at Duncan

Mike Sudhalter  |  September 1, 2008

On Friday, I got a rare opportunity to attend Midnight Yell Practice at Texas A&M's Kyle Field. For those of y'all who don't know, Midnight Yell is a weekly tradition before Aggie football games.

Everyone marches from Duncan Hall down to the 82,000-seat stadium, Kyle Field. There's so much spirit, tradition in the air. The only bad part was not finding my car afterwards, but it was worth it, to sing about "sawing Varsity (Texas') horns' off"

The Aggies can only go up from here - they lost to lowly Arkansas State on Saturday.

There are few states with as much pride as Texas. I would have to rank Arizona as the second one. You definitely see a lot of AZ state flags driving around the Grand Canyon State, plus it is definitely a cool flag. Arizona, I think, is like a cross-breed of California and Texas. There's a cowboy spirit, but a West Coast pace of living. At least, Phoenix, anyways.
