What I hadn’t counted on was this, which is one of two storage sheds on the upper concourse of the stadium that are about to meet their maker:
This is the good unit. The other one is too horrible to be photographed. It’s all roughly 97 percent garbage and 3 percent worthwhile materials, but I get paid to locate the correct 3 percent and if the truth be told I enjoy it quite a bit. (Many thanks to my always alert colleagues in Facilities who brought this to my attention.)
Here are a couple of interesting things that popped right up. First, some totally unwarranted optimism, undated but it has to be from 1984:
And second, a happier souvenir of Southwest Conference victory, also undated. Coach Bevan looks like he’s about 17 years old here so maybe we can date it by that:
Bonus: Nice view from up there.
