Big weekend

  • Ok, so AFN has come through and are broadcasting the Husker - Longhorn battle this Saturday. We'll see it live on Saturday night at 7:00 pm. We're planning on continuing our bar-b-q tradition, as the 7:00 pm time slot is much more conducive to grilling out (versus the painful 2:00 am last week) and should make the whole experience that much more enjoyable. SSG Johnson and SGT Kane are doing steaks, and SFC Kerchal is planning some type of bacon-wrapped sirloin strips masterpiece for him and I. The more convenient kick-off is also bringing the fairweather fans out of the woodwork. Should be a few more Husker fans milling about the building, and we may possibly have some competition on the grilling front also. Our section tends to be a little anti group activity, so I'm sure we'll stick to our normal MO and seclude ourselves in our office - diehards only. Hopefully the crimson and cream can fight through all of the buildup for this huge Big 12 matchup and deliver a knockout blow against the mighty burnt orange. We're all cautiously optimistic that the Big Red will deliver the epic win. For those of you who are attending the game, make sure and yell a little louder for me and all of the other Husker faithful deployed over here - I would give my right arm to watch this sucker live at Memorial Stadium.
  • This is shaping up to be a big weekend on a couple of other, albeit not nearly as important, fronts. After a way too long two week or so absence from the movie theater, I'll be getting things back into high gear with a couple of flicks over the next two days. Tonight I'll be catching "The Marine", starring WWE superstar John Cena. Can't wait! Friday night brings the highly anticipated "The Departed" to the Anaconda big screen. Can't wait to see that one. Then we have the game on Saturday, of course. All in all, shaping up to be a nice couple days for SGT Hanseling.
  • We're less than one week away from our 7 month anniversary of time spent in Iraq.
  • Give it up for the Seward High boys cross country team. The Bluejays picked up an impressive 2nd place finish at districts this week, and will carry that momentum into State this weekend, looking for a top ten finish. My man Jacob Hanseling came in with an outstanding individual 13th place finish, which earned him a medal. Good luck at state bro.

I'd give, well not an appendage, but something to watch the game live too here in Austin. Unfortch the tix are so expensive. Even for the nosebleed seats the tickets are scalping for at least 250.00 a piece. UT home games are completely sold out for the most part.

Saturday is for bragging rights between the 167th and little ol' me. :)
