Yep. Random Thoughtless. (Edit: Well, some Alamo Bowl thoughts)



  • That was really fun last night. Insane. But fun. 67-56 was the final. 
  • I'm in lobby that offers free breakfast. I had no idea that the Batton Death March crew was staying here. Long line. Everyone scarfing up stuff like they are starving.
  • It's a nice hotel, but they allow dogs?
  • The Riverwalk at Christmas is beautiful.
  • I thought I saw Baylor's women's coach Kim Mulkey eating lunch yesterday. She glared at me for staring at her. Definitely could have been her. I made Mrs. LL go back and get a picture. I'll post it later. Edit: Here it is. Honestly, I think that lady maybe younger than Mulkey.
  • We ate inside on the Riverwalk for lunch? Really. I pouted.
  • The Aggies behind us last night were very funny. Young guys. Having fun. Their bit was to do a loud "growl" sound whenever Baylor did something well.
  • That was like an Arena league game last night. I'm not sure I'm that proud to win it because I don't think football was meant to be played that way.
  • But I'm still happy. 
  • The drive down was traffic free. Amazing.
  • I think I'll take 281 home since it's a Friday. 
  • There's basically no police presence on the Riverwalk but everyone is well behaved. You'd think there would be incident after incident (how could you not push someone in the river during a fight?)
  • Mrs. LL has never seen the Alamo. Amazing. We're going to run by it before we leave. Funny thought: Wouldn't it be a perfect reflection on government if they charged for it? No way.
  • With Baylor being in town, I bet this is the most Caucasian the Riverwalk has ever been.
There were 17 touchdowns scored in this game. That's one touchdown for every 3 minutes and 31 seconds of game time. Baylor and Washington combined for 123 points (2.05 points per minute) and 1,397 yards of total offense. Robert Griffin had 350 total yards and 2 touchdowns and he wasn't even the best quarterback in San Antonio as Washington's Keith Price went for 477 total yards and 7 touchdowns. And his team lost! Then there was Baylor's Terrance Ganaway, who rushed for 200 yards and 5 touchdowns (as a team Baylor rushed for 482 yards). Of the 17 touchdown drives in this game, 11 took less than 3 minutes off of the clock.

If you don't already know about it, the loop to the east of Austin, that kicks in around Buda and dumps you out in Georgetown, is the greatest highway in Texas. And no Austin traffic.

great game. rgIII is a very classy young man. his mother and father should be very proud. hope he stays, but doubt he will. i think your choice of hwy 281 is great. should be singing a little gary p. nut road trip on the way home. be careful.

Arena League-type score - after the first qtr they cut to a recap of Rutgers/Fla(?) b-ball as they were going into 2OT, with the score tied @76. The announcer jokingly said the BU/Wash game might end with that many points. He wasn't off by much. Fun to watch
RGIII seems fairly down to earth considering his situation. Hope he keeps his cool and doesn't come unwound Vince Young-style

That probably was Kim Mulkey you saw. They showed her on the sidelines last night. Good thing you sent the Mrs back for a pic. I think you'd agree KM could easily take you down

I seriously hope you were being ironic with that Bataan survivors starving comment. Prior to the march, Allied troops were on reduced rations, and the march was characterized by a lack of food. A Wise resident had a husband that barely survived it, and returned severely emaciated

Happy New Year bloggers!
Please stay off the road if you've been drinking (Green's already got a full schedule anyway)

If you take 281 home you might stop in Johnson City at the Hill Country Cupboard for a chicken fried steak. It is one of the best.

Tell the Mrs. to ask someone at the Alamo how to get to the basement.

You're not a true Texan until you make that pilgrimage to the Alamo.

I don't know man. It was great the Bears won and all but this 6 man style is kind of embarassing. AB is going to have to recruit some defensive studs before anyone is going to take our alma mater seriously in the BCS.

If give a choice between driving on I 35 and water boarding, I'd take the water board. 281 is senic and stress free. Texas 16 is even prettier and less stress..
Who was the guy that made the tackle in that game last night?

It's "Bataan".

Did the fact that it was a well behaved Riverwalk and the most Caucasian it's probably ever been make you stop and think?

Dude, Kim never looked that good. Close, but....

Mulkey pic: if you're talking about the blonde, then yes, she does appear to be much younger than Mulkey. But she doesn't really resemble her.
Maybe the poofy hair is skewing your perception of its environment. I hear people say that about me all the time

How can one say they're a Texan and never have been to the Alamo?!?!?!?
