On Tuesday night, the Aggies played TCU in baseball. It was a beautiful night and there were a bizillion people there! Most of the people were Aggies, which is one of the reasons I love being a part of this network! It was actually weird to be yelling against the Horned Frogs, because my parents have season tickets to the TCU games and are friends with the coach, so I we go a lot and I generally am a big supporter of the Frogs. A&M ended up winning in the 9th inning. It was a great game!
**BONUS TRIVIA** A&M and TCU used to be rivals a long time ago and the phrase "Gig'em" came from that rivalry. When you hunt a frog, you use a gig (which is something like a spear) to kill it. So they would say "Gig'em" in reference to the Frogs!!

I DID NOT KNOW THAT!!! Great trivia.

See you tomorrow! We have a funeral in the morning (Jason's great aunt), but I am still hopeful that we will make the game.
