Met her at a tailgate last Fall. She is everything you hear about her. Even got down on a knee to talk to my son about hunting and baseball for like 30 minutes. Not easy to do with everything going on at the Texas A&M pregame. Props to her boyfriend too who sat there with a smile on his face letting it happen. They talked more hunting than ball, and I think she really appreciated that. Very gracious young lady and I hope she finds a way to continue being in the spot light and a role model for many.
There are several things I remember about that game. Of course, a great game and win. During the rain delay the Bama ladies were outside the dugout cheering with the fans while the Soooooooners stayed in their dugout afraid they might melt if they got wet. Also leading up to that game Beth Mowins and her bunch were all in on Ricketts and Okey. So to see them shed a few tears did put a little tingle in my heart. That was a very talented team, with power hitters and speed, and was well coached. Unfortunately, that’s something that is currently missing. RTR
