I would be impressed if we brought 150.

I'll be in Texas, but I'm visiting a girlfriend in Austin. Being a non-football fan, she would murder me if I even suggested trying to go to the game. :scared:

I'll be keeping up with it someway, somehow though!

Hey MeanGreen61

Did the term "mean Green" exist prior to Joe Greene's tenure? It appears that it did exist prior to his arrival per Wikipedia - just curious.

Just curious, is Fuzzys any good? I work with a guy that owns one but I've never eaten there.

Joe Greene did not get the moniker of Mean Joe Greene until he became a Steeler. At North Texas he was Big Joe Greene. Sidney Graham, the wife of the North Texas SID Fred Graham, began yelling "mean green" because of the play of the North Texas defense. Mean green stuck and spread from there. Greene did play on that defense along side of DE Cedric Hardeman who was also a first round pick. Hardeman became a multi-year all pro for the 49ers.

Interesting, I always wondered where that name came from, but never felt like researching it.

Very good I started going about 6 years ago to the one in Ft Worth . Some tell me it was the original. Had a hard time accepting fish tacos but they were very good and the beer is always cold

SEPT 21 23 FB: TROY vs. UNT at UNT 3 day Football Pep Band trip (Fri Sun)

My girl says they are heading out at 3am on Friday and will be back to Troy Sunday night. I'm tired already just thinking about it.

BAADDA BING!

That was a pretty sad situation. She was very gifted but had too many personal issues.

I know for a fact the team bus went from Monroe to Troy non-stop. Google shows it as a 7:18 trip. With the escort probably 6:15. Still a long time for no pee break.

On the LSU bus trip I was on I think the driver slept more than anyone on the bus.
