How Starbucks Ruined The Red River Shootout

This morning was the perfect time to run some errands because most people were in Dallas for the game or already at some party getting their drink on. I decided to stop at the grocery store to get a couple of avocados. I'll be honest, I felt like doing some emotional eating while I watch the game. Have I mentioned that we are very serious about our football? Anyway, my trip to get stuff for guacamole turned into a $50 trip. How did that happen?

Because I was at the store much longer than I anticipated I was offered a sample of Starbucks Pumpkin Latte. Honestly, I think Starbucks has some of the worst coffee in the world. But I love pumpkin and I figured between the pumpkin and the latte, the coffee would be sufficiently disguised. Also, the little cups with the little straws were very appealing. With all of these things going for this itty bitty drink, how could I lose? Well, by drinking the nastiest thing ever made -- that's how. My stomach is still churning two hours later. If I had just bought the avocados and left I would be happily eating my guacamole and guzzling beer to sooth my nerves instead of chomping on Pepcid.

Go Horns.

While I like Starbucks ok, I don't buy it for myself. I don't understand why people want to spend that kind of money on it. Jeez. We are in mouring here. Our Longhorns keep getting shorter. Maybe Colt will improve over the season... it's been a while since I have been this concerned. Now I have to wonder if we can beat the Aggies. Not a good year so far.

I think the coaches need to let that boy run with the ball when he has the opportunity instead of forcing him to throw the damn thing when it is hopeless AND he needs some glasses. I had hope until today because now Sweed is gone for the season to have surgery. Damn! Damn! Damn!

Maybe the Starbucks Pineapple Latte will be better.

OMG, the thought of that made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.
