43 Years as a Texas Aggie Football Fan
A Personal Album of the Fan Experience, 1966-2009
by Susan J. Saibara '74
This album is about all things that are part of the fan's experience as captured by photographs , ticket stubs, program covers, and any other period artifacts I could find. I got the idea to publish this history because for my family, going to A&M's football games was a passion and a shared family activity. As I reviewed the images, I realized that as our own appearances changed over the years, so did the face of Kyle Field. The one thing that didn't change was the indomitable Aggie Spirit.
This slice of our lives began in the Fall of 1966 when my brother, Paul '70 , was a fish in the Aggie Band. I hope you will relate to these experiences and enjoy the book. Gig 'em!
