There are many highlights in a year when you are involved with the Arizona Wildcats. So many things to look forward to, so many great people to work with, so many sunny and fun days.
Well, tonight is one of those things that is definitely a highlight of each year. Erick Harper's annual bbq smoker at his house. This guy can flat out bbq a piece of meat; and the sauce, wow, it is the best.
Coach Harp is our Director of Football Operations and he came here with Coach Stoops. He played at Kansas State when Coach Stoops and his brother, Bob Stoops were coaching as assistants at Kansas State. Originally from Texas, Harp (as we all call him) is also just a great all around guy.
Everyone looks forward to Harp's Smoker. Everyone beats him up early in the year for the date he has set for the smoker so they do not plan anything else on the important day. Cindy and I thought, and were hoping, that we would miss it because the golf team was playing in Toledo today, but even with the golf teams poor play this past week, I couldn't help but smile because I knew we would make the smoker!
Not only is the food off the hook good, but the fellowship with everyone there is great too. Everyone always shows up in a great mood because they know how good the food is going to be, then everyone just stays around and has a great time.
My mouth is already watering just thinking about tonight.
