Texas A&M players were really excited to have practice cancelled

Friday August 15th, 2014

No group of college guys has ever been this excited to find out it is going to the movies.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin told his team Thursday he was canceling football practice in lieu of a trip to the theater, and they were pretty psyched. 

This isn't the first time Sumlin's players have reacted so joyously to finding out they don't have practice. They went just as crazy last November.

Man, the Aggies really must not like to practice. That or the popcorn in College Station is out of this world.
