I’ve got to get myself up to a game. I try to go once every season, but we’ll see if that’s going to happen. <br> <br> Cassy Joy: Oh, that’s so good. I actually just had; I’m doing a surprise.

Because we’re going to do about a week worth of photos together. They’re coming to San Antonio for it. And as soon as the Aggie football schedule was announced, I reached back out, and I was like, “Guys, I’m sorry to be such a Texan right now,
