    Interesting stats I worked out,

    There are 149 Worlds teams
    7 are International teams (ineligible for bids)
    58 already have a paid bid
    57 already have an at-large


    So for Worlds bids there will be

    84 teams going for 8 paid bids
    27 teams going for 16 at-large bids

    There's a big park right nearby with a ton of bulls (steer? lol don't know correct farm terminology) that my cp & her friends found a fun spot to run around & take pics on the bulls. Oh, they're statues...just read this & it sounded like live bulls! Lol! :)

    If you like history, Dealy Plaza where JFK was shot is nearby. There's a museum.

    And George W. Bush museum is on the SMU campus. Very moving tribute to 9/11. Also, Daley plaza is right dowtown. Going to a tour at the Dallas Cowboys stadium this year and trying to hit the Stockyards to see the cattle drive.

    The part about international teams not getting bids makes me cringe. As if some of them wouldn't deserve a bid.

    Also planning to hit up the Pecan Lodge over in Deep Ellum. Supposed to be awesome BBQ. My poor CP may burst out of her uniform by the end of the weekend.

    I saw a tweet that said there were just over 1,000 teams attending this year, which I think is less than last year. If true, that is surprising to me.

    I went and compared a few days ago. If I remember right it was a little less than 100 fewer teams this year than last year. With around 60 teams last year that were tiny/mini, which are not competing this weekend. So pretty close numbers.

    Thanks. I wonder if that was expected. I thought it was made a 4 day event to accommodate more teams but perhaps it was for a different reason.
