Three weeks to go.

By the time I get to the last 15 minutes or so of my daily walk, I'm usually pretty hot and sweaty. But something on my "Morning Walk" playlist gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Every. Time. 95 degrees outside? Goosebumps. Sweaty from walking for a couple of miles? GOOSEBUMPS!
On my iPod I have the play-by-play of Vince's Rose Bowl-winning touchdown in English and Spanish, and both of them give me chills. Still! And it's been 19 months! (The final play is pretty cool, too: "Longhorns Campeons! Longhorns Campeons Nacional! Que un gran momento!")

I didn't shoot this video (I was about 20 rows lower), but this is pretty much how I remember Vince's game-winning TD: pure, chaotic JOY mixed with hugging, screaming, crying--

Have I mentioned how much I love Texas football?
