Along the lines of information that may interest only me......

I watched National Lampoon's European Vacation today, and during the closing credits, a photo of the pool with the astroturf maroon/white aTm pops up.

I did not know that.

Cowboy boot pool is the greatest ever.

That is NOT a cowboy boot.

SENIOR boot.

(pardon the caps for emphasis)

I realize the short upper looks more like a cowboy boot but I made that same mistake and was summarily corrected by someone who knew him.

Clayties carpet next to that pool was on the Kyle Field 50 yd line at some point in time.

I love all the Vacation movies and have watched them many, many times. However, European is my least favorite and I've never noticed this before(of course I don't normally watch the credits).

Can't wait for it to come on again now so I can see this!

I believe the photograph of the pool used in the credits was originally in Texas Monthly. The 50 yard line turf is from the early '80s. I think it was from Tom Wilson's era.

I got a big kick out of seeing the boot pool and the A&M logo the first time I watched this movie. Plus the song "Back in America" was a great song. It was produced by Phil Ehart of Kansas, and sung by Terry Brock, who was the lead singer of LeRoux and did a lot of backup vocals for Kansas. It is a very rare tune that you can't easily get, but it was very good.

I looked at Claytie's house in midland using the birds eye view on bing.com, either I was looking at the wrong house or he no longer lives there.

Clayton Williams is a good Aggie. If you haven't seen his Texas Monthy interview that was on PBS several years ago you should.

The boot pool isn't in Midland but on a ranch near Alpine.

Ha ha. I just saw this movie for the tenth time but never watched the credits. This thread was the first result on my google search.

It all comes back to TexAgs.

My bad. Thanks for pointing out my glaring mistake on missing the "off camera" bomb Clayton dropped a while back ago. Kinda a touchy issue. Don't want the staff hammer thrown on me with going into depth on that whole debacle!
