A&M spring game still on despite threatening weather

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- I didn't get a drop of rain on my drive from San Antonio to Texas A&M this morning.

I probably should consider myself fortunate -- not only for that little bit of good luck, but also that I'm currently sitting in the dry press box at Kyle Field.

A heavy band of angry, dark clouds are ringing the stadium. I bet we'll be fortunate not to see any rain for Texas A&M's scrimmage which will be starting in about an hour.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry beat most of the fans into the stadium. Perry, a former Aggie Yell Leader, is bouncing around the sidelines like he did back in the old days.

Other than the governor politicking among his old friends, here are some things I'm anxious to watch with the Aggies this afternoon.

I'll check back with a report after the scrimmage finishes.
