So many people are still continuing to heart the picture Aaron A. Bedoya took, but all I can think of is how his picture took me back to the good old days.

Seeing the picture of the tailgate section reminded me of partying with my late uncle Bruno Gonzalez. He was the life of the party at tailgates and had not only his family laughing but his friends as well.

I remember snacking on some homemade chile con queso nachos while the grown-ups were sipping on some beers. Now in my youth, I remember the crowd being just as it looked in Mr. Bedoya's picture.

I especially remember the long walk to the Sun Bowl along with tons of other Miners fans. Even when you look at Aaron's picture you can almost hear the chant as people made their way to the stadium.

The picture just had me in awe and made me ecstatic to see the UTEP Miners have their support back. This picture is worth so much to me because of the emotions it invokes when I stare at it.

Let's face it when you look at his picture you automatically flashback to good times from the past to the present.
