I love My Boys.
I wasn't even born the last time UT won a championship (1970). Last night I felt like I died and was in Heaven.
My eyes are still trying to catch up with my brain because I cannot believe that I watched what I watched.
Honestly I can tell you that SC played a great game and I seriously thought that we were gonna lose at one point.
Because when you are playing a team trying to win their 3rd championship in a row, a team that has over 30-something consecutive wins, a team with two Heisman winners, a team playing in their backyard, a team who was favored by media and fans to win; you just don't think you are going to win especially when the game is down to the last minute.
Aye, that last minute: I was sweating bullets, Incredible's stomach was in knots, and the woman sitting next to me was calm as ever saying "don't worry, y'all got this" and all I wanted to shout back to her was: "SHUT UP" because if they didn't get it, I would blame her.
We watched the game at a house party mostly attended by Texas Exes. They had bloody marys and screwdrivers as the drink of choice.
I should. Never. Drink. Vodka.
Correction: I should never drink well into five o'clock in the morning.
After we won, the party headed to the local Texas Exes bar to celebrate. On a school night. Are you kidding me? It was like I was back in my ol' UT days because in the back of my head I kept thinking:
"If I go to bed at six, sleep an hour, I can wake up in time"
But I did go to bed and that was the mistake. I should have stayed awake and let the alcohol ride out. Getting up this morning was Hell.
Thank goodness a co-worker gave me a Starbucks gift card (I don't drink coffee) but I sure did order the biggest Vanilla Creme. Two, to be exact.
My only disappointment in the game is that they waited until the post game show to give us a look at Matty. WTF?
I know, it's football not a celebrity watching game but they did show James Denton twice in the stands.
Now what was that about? Honestly, since it was in Pasadena I expected more celebs in the crowd.
I also expected a half time show. What was up with that? The night before at the Orange Bowl, Ciara performed. The Rose Bowl's half time featured both school's bands and a video clip of the season's highlights music tidbit with U2.
Now I can return all my missed calls and catch up with friends I have not spoken to in forever because the season is over. Boo hoo.
