November 4 in San Antonio history...

November 4 in San Antonio history...

1899
The University of Texas plays their annual football game against the  Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas right here in San Antonio at the International Fairgrounds.  A&M disputes a fumble in the second half and refuses to take the field, forfeiting the game to Texas, 6-0.

1986
Perry Como records his Christmas television special at the Lila Cockrell Theater from 6:45 to 8 p.m.  Formal attire is required.

1994
A fireworks and laser show before a Spurs game triggers a sensor on a water cannon in the Alamodome, unleashing a torrent of water that soaks hundreds of fans and delays the game for 50 minutes.  31 fans are injured in the scramble to dry ground and the Spurs lose to the Golden State Warriors, 123-118. “You got to go with the flow,” laughed Maryann Saldana, a season ticket holder who made a 2-1/2-hour drive from Laredo to get waterlogged.
