Two bowls-full to ring in 2013

January 6, 2013

My dad, Jack Langdell, and I have never been to a college football game, much less two bowl games in a 24-hour period. Amazing, exciting, overwhelming, just WOW! That's the only way I know to describe our adventure.
We left Poteau around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, excited and ready to enjoy our four days on the road.
The trip to West Memphis, Ark., where we were staying, seemed to fly by. We arrived at the hotel around 2:30 p.m, got checked in, freshened up some and headed across the Mississippi River bridge to Memphis, Tenn.
