Friday Follies: Football, Finally

It sounds like they’re actually intending to play tomorrow but since they won’t be letting anyone into the stadium to watch I guess an old fashioned pep rally is out of the question:

I’m think that was taken in 1927 but since I’m not certain I’ll just weasel and call it circa 1927. This is quite a picture, worth a couple moments of your time for a closer look.

Bonus: Spectators or not, Rice fight never dies.

Extra Bonus: A year ago I would have climbed this just for sport but today for some reason I couldn’t be bothered. I must be slipping.

    Boy, the Milby Hotel and Morning Glory Butter. Hadn’t thought about those two things for quite a while.

    If the circus billboard isn’t from the year before, and I’d imagine that ad space was more valuable in that era.
    The circus was in Houston on October 19 and 20 in 1926, as the poster says, and as this website chronicles.
