blue front white back

its called magic
by the local temple wildcat fans

if you dont live in texas you dont really understand
if you move here from somewhere else
then you eventually understand

its supremo
almost god like
an almost religious experience

if you have seen the friday night lights movie
or tv show
its like that here in texas

heck one town built a 62 million dollar stadium
but because of defects they arent able to use it

the stadium for the school district where my wife she
works is called
the palace

they built this big thang
then cut teachers salaries
laid off teachers
ticked off a lot of folks
thats texas

every friday night in the fall
this state goes crazy
at the end of the season
there is the state playoffs that goes on and on
it culminates now in the state championship games
at jerrys world in dallas
or should i say arlington

what a stage for a high school player to get to play on
or a cheerleader
or a band member
or a dance team
or all those fans

we lived that experience once
actually twice
and got got caught up in all the magic
all the giddiness
an experience we wont ever forget or regret

blue front white back magic is what it was
the uniforms are blue on the front and white on the back
its been that way for years
magic is what it is suppose to be

in the early to mid 90s at the school
temple high school
there were classes that were special for several years
not only was football the best team in the state but
so was football basketball track baseball
cheerleading choir band etc

oh that band was fantastic during those years
both boys and girls teams were good
it seemed to permeate through the whole school
that greatness
throughout the community

we got scooped up in all that since our son
played during that time
we traveled all over the state to playoff games
sometimes we had larger crowds than the home
teams did

that was the year during a game against
odessa permian
the team from friday night lights
that the fans got to jumping banging chanting so
long and loud
that it cracked the stadiums concrete foundations
such that the home side was closed for repairs
the next year

they played in all the big stadiums in the state
am baylor ut jerrys house texas stadium

this was a special group during that time
full of division 1 players

its all hard to describe unless you have been swept
up into it
its almost mystical in its feeling

now the
blue front white back magic has returned
the team is making its run through the state playoffs
yes even through thanksgiving holidays
bumping right up against christmas
they have been over powering teams just like they
did in the early 1990s when they won
the state championship

magic is what it is
may the blue front white back magic
win out this weekend
