Transcript This year, the traditional night-before-Homecoming Bonfire at the University of Houston was possibly more pumped up than the last one. "Playing with the band definitely has its rewards, and Bonfire would have to be one of them. I thought it was even better this year than last year's. Maybe they had more wood!" said junior music education major Gustavo Paredes referring to the wooden piling at the heart of the roaring blaze. "About two stories tall." The fire generated a lot of heat, gladly absorbed by the proud UH supporters that had braved the toe-numbing cold. This was the first year the bonfire was held behind the Athletic/Alumni Center. Inside the center, fun and games were hosted by Alpha Phi Omega and the Houston Athletic Foundation for all to enjoy. Homecoming Chairwoman Monica Quintero said that holding the activities in the Alumni Center was done in an effort to bring alumni and students together in true Cougar spirit. Prior to the actual fire ignition, the band played some spirit-rousing tunes, including the Cougar Fight song and the Of Alma Mater hymn. The percussion section kicked in with some funky beats while the Cougar Dolls and cheerleaders also performed. Cheers and beers helped increase everyone's spirits so that, when it was finally time to light the bonfire, everyone was really excited and loud. The flames caught quickly and soon the fire towered above everyone, lighting each smiling face with a golden glow. A feeling of unity was felt among attendees, who lingered to mingle in the fire's lighl Music, songs and chants wafted upwards with the smoke, filling the air with Cougar pride in anticipation of the next day's big game. "Playing with the band definitely has its rewards and Bonfire has to be one of them," Gustavo Paredes November
