Letters From America: Red Rally

Hello Everyone,

I have done the quintessential American thing, and attended a pep rally. You know, like they have in Grease, but with a little less John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. It had everything, cheerleaders, marching band, footballers, a couch’s motivational speech, and what pep rally would be complete without the famous school mascots, Lobo Louie and Lobo Lucy. There was also a giant version of our rival’s mascot made entirely from napkins with the sole purpose of being burned. A bit like an American version of Bonfire Night, although without the fireworks to go along with it. But with cheerleaders. So it all evens out somewhere. All I did was take pictures of the Aggie as it burned, and I really want to share some of the best ones with you.

The Huge Aggie, ready to be burned. 
And it's burning!!!

Lobo Louie and the New Mexico Flag
Such a cute bow!
How close I was!
And it continues to burn!
Look how happy that girl at the top is!
Almost burned out now.
