Texas A&M fans are weird. They drink beer with their class rings in it, they say “Howdy” to all incoming freshmen, and they insist you call their cheerleaders “yell leaders.”
They also have a long tradition of meeting up at the stadium on Friday nights to yell like crazy people. So tonight at midnight, tens of thousands of A&M fans will meet at Kyle Field for their “Midnight Yell” tradition, also known as their “Yell Practice.”
The practice of yelling began way back in 1913 and they’ve been screaming at the top of their lungs ever since. The crowd will also sing “The Aggie War Hymn” and listen to the cheerleaders — I mean, yell leaders — tell how the Aggies are going to beat their opponent, which in this case, is Kentucky. The whole process lasts over an hour and then everyone goes home and goes to bed, only to get back up to go back to the stadium the next day.
We talkin’ about yell practice, man. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin’ about yell practice. How silly is that, man? We talkin’ about yell practice. We talkin’ about yell practice. We ain’t even talkin’ about the game. We talkin’ about yell practice.
