There are some differences, there is one big box as opposed to the 2 smaller boxes we had last year, the shop is two sided this year and there is a dedicated "Rage" corner where people can get info, samples & posters of Rage.

Eric Metcalf.

He lives here in Seattle you know? He used to train at the old Gateway Athletic Club here in Seattle where I used to work at. Dude was so cool!
He hooked me up with Holiday Bowl tickets one year for my brother in law when Texas played Oregon Ducks. My brother in law is a huge Ducks fan and Metcalf is Texas alumni.

The funniest part of that was that the tickets were smack dab in the middle of the Texas band section! 2 Duck fans in the middle of a sea of burnt orange...
