So here’s the thing . . . I found this photo of the Rice athletics field from, I think, about the mid-1920s. I was pretty hopped up about it too, because if you zoom in on it you can actually read what’s on the billboards in the background just to the left of the stands. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
So one is for a tire company and the other for Sunset Coffee, right?
Now look at the actual subject of the picture and tell me what in the world is going on on the field. Are they spectators just walking to their seats, marching right across the playing field? But some of them are dressed quite oddly. I don’t really have any other theory.
And a sad note: She wouldn’t have wanted me to talk about her so I won’t, but I can’t let it pass with nothing at all. Sue Brod, RIP.
