  1. Lots of Texas State fans at the game. I've heard the stadium has already run out of alcohol. Can anyone confirm?
  2. WTF, pig parts?? The loss to Arkansas a couple of years ago was an inside job.
  3. City of Austin is adding sidewalks on both sides of the street and adding dedicated bicycle lanes to Bull Creek Road between 45th and North Loop. Street parking will be removed on one side of the street to make room. Homeowners will also be giving up some of their front yards adjacent to the street. The work is being funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond that was approved by voters. Mobility will be improved for walkers and cyclists. Construction has started. https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/2ea053bb2794484880f485b0775b1186 My guess is that the roads were temporarily re-striped to give construction crews some elbow room to work. Unsure why the center lines are jutting out like that - maybe as a "traffic calming" scheme during construction?
  4. Thomas J. Henry is currently parachuting attorneys directly onto the freeways in Dallas and Austin. After this is all over, they'll be able to single-handedly pay off the US National Debt.
  5. Texas will need to beat both Tech and the Big12 refs. So, I figure the Refs will nullify at least one Texas touchdown, and give Tech one touchdown. Texas will need to score something like 21 points more (before Big12 Ref "adjustments") than Tech to actually leave Lubbock with a win.
  6. Also, Soylent Green takes place in 2022. Glad we missed that one.
  7. AISD opening two hours late on Thursday.
  8. Since spring classes have already started, I assume he is a summer arrival?
  9. That was a makeup call by the refs in the whistle on the fumble for TD
  10. Five Texas OL could not block three Arkansas DL. Game over.
  11. Five Texas OL could not block three Arkansas DL. Game over.
  12. Five Texas OL could not block three Arkansas DL. Game over.
  13. They're now selling limited view, standing room only tickets
  14. Cell service worked on west side upper deck even during timeouts and commercials when everybody checks their phones. It worked last year with 25% stadium attendance - but it wasn't reliable in previous years with a full stadium. Some of the vendors couldn't get their credit card readers to work. It was like watching a caveman trying to fly a plane. I found it was hotter outside the stadium before the game than inside the stadium (west side upper deck). Went into stadium early because I guessed the entrances would be backed due to the mobile tickets. Very little wait at Gate 3 when we went in early. Since we got into the stadium early, there were no beer lines inside. Pregame beer lines outside stadium were long. As we left and went down the escalators (west side upper deck), it seemed staff weren't metering the flow. Got a little scary backed up on one of the landings. The heat was conducive to mini sundresses and halter tops - which was nice.
  15. DoD is assessing reports of Afgan civilian family casualties during US missile attack on alleged suicide bombers. https://www.centcom.mil/MEDIA/STATEMENTS/Statements-View/Article/2756293/update-us-central-command-statement-on-defensive-strike-in-kabul/
  16. UTEP 17-0 in first quarter. I don't know if it's on TV.
  17. State Department cancelled briefing today. Pentagon briefing scheduled for 2PM CT.
  18. The NWS backed off pretty quickly on the tornado warning - they may have actually ended the warning early. Unsure about the hail.
  19. Tornado warning for Blanco, Burnet, Hays counties.
  20. Alert from National Weather Service just interrupted my TV. 60mph winds, hail. NW Travis county. Burnet.
  21. I plan on supplementing my income by using my gasoline powered generator to charge up my neighbors' Teslas.
