Texas Tech Red Raiders and Texas A&M Aggies get along like oil and water. Alumni of both universities bleed school colors and are famous for being intolerant of each other.
I plead guilty. My Tech family bleeds red and black.
Last week, our world was shattered as our beloved Lurch faced a life or death situation. As fear and doubt engulfed us, this tall, lanky, young surgeon sauntered into our lives.
I asked where he went to school...he said A&M...I said a four letter expletive. He said "I know. Don't think I haven't noticed your school ring."
We knew we had the right person.
The day of surgery, he showed up with his scrubs tucked in his steel toe work boots. He joined hands with my family and led us in prayer. Then he saved Lurch's life!
So I am proud to say that my hero is an Aggie...
