Dallas, Dallas, Dallas...

After months of advocating my friends and family to 'like' the Lethal Lions page on Facebook, I was delighted to hear that my partner and I won the contest! I've never been to Dallas before so I knew this was going to be the opportunity of a lifetime. After five hours of travelling, seeing PSU Alumni and football players flood in the lobby of the Hyatt in Dallas I realized that Texas was where my heart belonged. These people exhibited the pride I've had from the moment I stepped foot on this campus.

I was excited to see what Dallas had to offer. After checking in and getting settled, the road warriors and myself set out to find the best eateries in town, including Chuy's a Mexican Bar and Grill. The food was amazing! Our dessert, a Mexican delicacy called, 'tres  leche' was to die for! We spent the rest of the night exploring the different sights of Dallas. The next morning, we started the day with a hearty breakfast (compliments of the Hyatt) and set off for football game. With the road warriors and myself decked out in PSU gear, we approached the Cotton Bowl stadium bubbling with excitement. I couldn't' believe how many Penn Staters I saw! Our "We Are..." chant was louder than I've ever heard it. It was a gorgeous winter morning in Dallas, with the temperature in the mid-50s. Although we did not win the game, it was amazing to see the support of not just our Alumni but from the Houston Cougars as well.

After the game, the road warriors and I visited Billy Bob's, the world's largest Honky Tonk. We checked out an arena which had live bull riding as well as a wall of famous country artists' hand impressions from before I was born! Dallas is a really urban, clean and gorgeous city. I look forward to visiting it again in the future. I would like to thank Chevrolet for putting together The Sonic Road Warriors Challenge, and the PSU Alumni association for planning all the prideful events that we got to take part in. It was an absolute delight to explore Dallas! 


Drive on and drive safe,
