Damn Bye Week.

The Red Raiders are off until Next Saturday when they take on the West Virginia Mountain Mamas, which means a Saturday with not much else happening in our little corner of the world.

But, the sky is going to be blue and and life goes on. So, what do we do when their is no football, such as we have for 40 weeks out of the year?

We live.

There is certainly no lack of things to do here in the Hubbaplex, and maybe a weekend off from football can catch you up on some of them. For example:


Weed your yard

Check out Prairie Dog Town

Drive to Brownfield and visit a winery

Wash your car

Check out the colorful characters on Avenue Q

Drive to Ruidoso and spend the kids inheritance on the blackjack table

Maybe go and buy more Tech Gear so that you are ready for NEXT week


So, don't let anyone tell you that there aren't some serious options here in Lubbock when there is no game. You just need to seek it out. Plus, the beers at home are a lot cheaper than they are at the stadium. So is parking. Just don't wind up in this next group of people you see below.
