ditto!! i'm so excited about the new stadium, but i have to keep reminding myself that it's still over a year away!
I think Willy Wonka's chocolate river was clearer than the Brazos
The Brazos still runs muddy as she's run all along
It's brown after it rains. Normally it's a greenish-gray—like lots of lakes and rivers.
Pro Ecclesia, Pro Mundus
I don't get complaining about the water quality of a river. Somehow it seems to have become the latest "cute" thing our fans love to complain about, right behind helmet color. Where are these rivers with Maldives-like water that I'm apparently missing out on?
I'm not sure anyone is complaining as much as making light of the blue water used in all the artists' rendering of the new stadium.
Personally Im just having a good time at the expense of the person who did the drawings, as if the water was going to be that blue unless someone dyed it lol
this. personally, i couldn't care less the color of the river, but most of the time it's actually quite nice at that part of the Brazos. the chocolate milk color that it is right now is what it looks like, on a good day, around where i grew up.
Of course the river looks muddy right now. Baylor has a giant construction site right next to it with huge amounts of dirt being moved around (can you say "runoff"?), TXDOT is digging into the riverbed to pour concrete supports for frontage road bridges, and there have been rains upstream that will put a little extra silt into the Brazos. Once all the construction is done, it will look fine. Maybe not coloring-book blue, but nice enough. Can't wait!
The water color thing was funny a year ago when it was released. Now it's become cliche and worn out. Yes, it's a rendering and it's blue and we know it's not blue. It's run its course.
Me too I am majorly pumped up!
It's official - the joke about the river has run its course.
I'd just suggest finding something original and less worn out to talk about. It wasn't really clever a year ago to warrant repetition.
Let loose the beavers. They'll make it blue. If not they'll frolick and draw attention away from its brown-ness.
Stop standing on your head while taking pictures.
Lake Brazos is back to looking like a normal Texas lake or river.
