This is the famous Red Raider. Guns Up!

I really enjoy college football. As a delayed birthday gift from Amy and Neil, I was invited to attend the football game between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Arizona State Sun Devils. Since I am a University of Arizona Wildcat, I was rooting against the Sun Devils! Go Red Raiders! The front of a t-shirt people were wearing at the game said “Don’t Bring a Pitchfork to a Gun Fight!”

The game was delayed for about an hour due to lightening and 50 mile per hour winds. However, that did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd. The crowd was loud and quite interested in supporting their team. The saying for Texas Tech is “Guns Up” and the crowd makes a gun symbol with their hands. It was fun to be a part of the loud Texas Tech crowd. The game largely turned into an offensive game, with Texas Tech winning 52 to 45.

The Red Raider symbol is everywhere!

It turned out that this game was designed to honor the cotton industry in the area. Many people wore white shirts to promote the cotton industry, but I wore a red Texas Tech t-shirt.

There is a large amount of cotton around Lubbock!
