NOTE: THIS WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON THURSDAY, BUT BECAUSE OF THE BIG 12 TOURNAMENT IT WAS TAKEN DOWN UNTIL SUNDAY. YOU ARE NOT SEEING DOUBLE.
Congratulations to the TEXAS A&M AGGIES! Champions of the inaugural "Survivor Big XII." A late push (I mean REALLY late push) helped propel the Aggies to victory. At the start of the Wednesday Big 12 basketball games the Aggies were down nearly 2-to-1, but pulled through to win with 58% of the vote.
The Aggies persevered through thick and thin, and were the beneficiaries of some timely losses by the competition to take home the prize.
This just goes to show you, kids reading at home, that you don't have to be the tallest or the strongest or the fastest to get ahead in life. No, what it tells you is that if you sustain yourself and fight through the bad times that you too can win at anything you put your mind to.
This public service announcement has been brought to you by the number 12 and the letters A and M.
Lastly, I hope everyone had fun with this game. Due to overwhelming popularity it will be back next season, unless I can come up with a
cheesier different idea. If you have any thoughts, feel free to submit them to me.
