Earlier this year, I dropped by the annual Texas State Soap Box Derby to enjoy the sunny day. This is a celebrated tradition here, and is a great way for students to let off some steam with all the stress they have to deal with.
I arrived a little late, so I hurried to grab a hot dog and settled in to watch the fun. They had great 90s music playing, appropriate since it was homecoming week.
The crowds were enthusiatic, cheering the racers on as they sped down the hill outside the Recreation Center. It was a top notch show of sportsmanship, and the cars were awesome creations too. I couldn’t believe the craftsmanship on some of these. It was like they had been working up to this all semester.
I had a great time, and I’ll be sure to stop by again next year!
