San Antonio Regionals were a rollercoaster, a very fun rollercoaster
Yes, the Aggies came out in droves for their Thursday match up against Memphis. The maroon was outnumbering the blue 10 to 1, easily. But then, they were just a short drive away.
My favorite quote of the day – a burnt orange shirted man yelling “Hook Em Aggies!”
They didn’t. It was an exciting game though, one point separating loser from victor. We watched as the maroon drained out of San Antonio and later popped the orange balloons in our office as Tennessee took the same route out at the hands of Ohio State.
So, yeah, Friday was a little quiet in San Antonio. I scanned the Riverwalk for basketball fans and found very few. And then, Saturday happened.
God bless the Memphis Alumni Association for setting up camp right across from our office. The blue and white was everywhere. And thank you, traveling Buckeyes! We can always count on you to show up, nut necklaces around your necks and ready to root on your team.
While San Antonio would have been a very different place had A&M advanced, those Memphis and Ohio State fans were a blast. Thank you all for the memories!
