Kicking off the 2012 season, both the men's and women's teams at Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi storm lanes and drain buckets as they face off against the rest of the Southland Conference. Head Coach Robert Robinson plans to help his women's squad rebound from last year's setbacks and return them to 2010's deep run to the conference-tournament final. Junior guard Jessica Jammer paces her sneakered mates by dropping points that frequently total double digits, helping expand both the dreams and counting skills of aspiring athletes in the stands.
Frustrated by a lack of venues for her children's birthday parties, Raquel Richardson founded Brinca!—a safe, clean, and climate-controlled environment for sock-footed little ones to romp alongside their parents. Multi-colored inflatables, including a mock train-station and three-person slide, encircle couches where parents browse free wireless internet or electronically befriend nearby parents. All equipment is sanitized daily, keeping surfaces in like-new condition while preventing the spread of illness and cooties.

Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home. Two times a day, room service peeks in, checking to make sure beds are comfy and bowls are brimming with filtered water. Dog-loving caregivers oversee dogs so that each pet receives ample attention as they gambol across the indoor and outdoor play areas or nap on communal couches. This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.

Funtabulous fosters year-round wintertime activities with boisterous bouts of skating and coasting across an open field of synthetic ice. The durable, melt-resistant material provides a welcoming surface for practicing graceful spins and triple axles without the dangers of ice-cold insults from wandering yetis. In the interest of safety and comfort, skaters are asked to arrive wearing long pants and tall socks.
The Pooch Pad is a 6,000-square-foot pet resort with a staff that accommodates visiting pups in spacious cageless suites designed to emulate life at home. With space enough for two tail-waggers, each executive suite is equipped with comfortable bedding, decorative artwork, and a Bluetooth earpiece for international barking conferences. Playtime each day at the indoor park with rubber flooring gives dogs the opportunity to stretch their paws among their peers, while soothing music pours out of speakers throughout the facility to elicit sweet, slobbery dreams. Going to great lengths to preserve pet safety, The Pooch Pad's fire-detection units and monitored security systems ensure that no pooch bakes a MilkBone casserole for more than four hours. Larger midrise suites are available for upgrade, as well as nine location-themed Presidential suites that are replete with flat-screen televisions and webcam options for pet owners to check on their pups.
