I play a bit part in this one, but I like my windswept look.
The travails of stardom: I learned something while we were filming yesterday. That turf down on the football field gets almost unimaginably hot. After about ten minutes I felt like my feet were on fire. My hat is off to the young men who play there.
Bonus: Where’s Willy??
A while ago the folks in the Treasurer’s Office were cleaning things out and they discovered a small copy of the statue of William Marsh Rice that sits in the quad—they were apparently made to be given out to donors. They graciously gave it to me for the archives. It accidentally wound up in my kitchen (don’t ask) and as I was bringing it back this morning it crossed my mind that it had been some time since the old fellow had seen anything other than the back of Lovett Hall. So I decided to take him for a walk.
Where is he?? This should be an easy one.
