It reminds me of the old Aggie joke. It seems that A&M bribed the head referee into sounding the final gun to end the game early in the 4rd quarter with Texas leading 7-0. The Longhorns left the field, thinking the game was over. Three plays later, A&M scored. But they lost 7-6 when they went for 2 and didn't make it.
(Aggie fans: Save your wrath. I love the Aggies.)
How do two teams score 161 points in one game? That's 23 touchdowns! Nearly 6 every quarter. A score every 2-1/2 minutes! The paper said ACU scored every time they had the ball, except once when they missed a field goal. I'm told that West Texas A&M started kicking on-side kicks after their scores, hoping they might keep the ball out of ACU's hands.
Yesterday we had a memorial service at our church for my friend Jerry Nicholas. His life was an inspiration for many as he battled cancer with such dignity and peace. I think my favorite story was when he had his leg amputated, the family went home and dressed as pirates for a family picture. It was his "amputation celebration" picture. He sat in front as the peg-legged pirate. What class!
