Be Thankful For Texas Tech Football

Put aside our football heartache and our disagreements, and just be thankful.

NCAA Football: Texas at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

I love the feeling of this week. Trees keep changing colors and dropping leaves, you can smell the pecan pie by just thinking about it, and the air get’s a little chilly. The hustle and bustle of the Holiday’s has officially begun, people are filling up their tank to head out of town, or hunkering down for a peaceful weekend with family. Through all of the holiday happenings, take a minute and think about what you have to be thankful for.

Whether you are the one sneaking away from the party to catch the game, or you are a family where the game is the party, take time to enjoy family, food, and football. Even though Texas Tech’s season isn’t going great (to say the least), be thankful there there is even football to watch. Personally I happen to be a Tech fan and a Cowboy’s fan, like most of y’all probably are. So, if you don’t want to ruin the good mood during Thanksgiving break to watch the Tech game, there is always the Cowboy game to enjoy on Thursday! Let’s just hope they both don’t let us down. There is obviously more to be thankful for than football, but if that’s what you are riding on for it to be a good weekend, give thanks that you have football to watch.

What are some other things to be thankful for you ask? Well for starters, be thankful that no matter how bad it is, at least you’re not a longhorn. Be thankful that (love him or hate him) Kliff isn’t gone yet. I know he hasn’t produced yet, but there is nothing that worries me more than the coaching carousal. I think we have gone down the Kliff rabbit hole enough since Saturday, so I’ll stop there before I go too far.

For those of you who are just ready for this season to end, I hope you can find a way to enjoy Friday’s game as much as possible. I know it was a long nine months to wait for a less than stellar season, but enjoy it while you can, because it will be another long wait until you see Texas Tech football again. I was having a conversation with a good friend on Sunday and at one point I said “It seems like football season always goes by way too fast, but these last 2 weeks are going to feel like forever”. Yes, even for an optimistic fan like myself my spirits are a little down, to say the least, but I am still going to enjoy watching my beloved Red Raiders suit up and battle it out against the Baylor Bears come Friday. I am just hoping the Cowboys don’t break my heart, because that’s my only ray of sunshine on this otherwise cloudy football season.

No matter what happens on Friday I will still be a Tech fan, I’ll still watch the games, I’ll still hoop and holler for the team I love, and I will always keep my guns up. Until then, let’s hope for the best, and wreck’em.
