OK OK, I know it's not a big deal, but it is to me. Reasons being are as follows:
First, the head coach of Navarro Jr. College is my 2nd cousin. My dad coached him all four years of high school. After that he played for Kilgore Jr. College and then played for the Longhorns. He went on to have stints with the Chargers, Chiefs, and Broncos. Never really stuck anywhere though.

Second, this game is being played at Mt. Pleasant high school. The Superintendent and Head Coach of Mt Pleasant high school are former players for my dad. My dad just called me from the game, and his experience has been wonderful. He got to go to the pregame banquet last night, his former players recognized him in front of the crowd, talking about how much he meant to them and this and that. Long story short, he is in Hog Heaven right now, and I'm extremely happy that have hosted him this way.
