The Lubbock local TV stations run church commercials at nearly every break. "I was so tired of the same old thing at church, I almost quit going, but then I discovered the fresh ministry of Reverend So-and-so. A typical conversation with the Tech fans included a mention of how the Aggies are the worst. This is what happens when A&M's media guide calls Tech fans classless. The second point is that Tech fans harbor fond memories of Colorado vacations, have sons and daughters who live in Littleton, Longmont, or wherever, and "love it up there". In the course of this exchange, Raider fans by the dozen were friendly and cordial. Some bought us beers, provided us with sausage wraps, and rolled out the Red (Raider) Carpet. This was the friendliest fan experience yet on an away game.
