HOOK EM HORNS!!!
The other day I went to the gym and I was wearing my Longhorn shirt. As I walked through the front door to tell them my account number and get on to my workout one of the supervisors at the gym said, "WOW!! You have A LOT of nerve wearing that T-SHIRT here." I just looked at her and chimed in, "EXCUSE ME? But we have Nebraska fans down in Texas. We can route for whoever we want to." I just smiled and went on my way.
I am from Texas. I was born in Texas. I grew up in Texas. My family is from Texas. When I was in high school I had admired the Texas Longhorn Marching Band. Texas Rocks It!! You will not find a bigger music program or football program in Nebraska. In Texas parents can't wait to get to a high school football game on Friday Nights and on the weekends if they can hit up a college game somewhere then that's where they are. It's BIG and it's BIG FUN too.
You can take ME out of Texas but you can't take TEXAS out of ME.
Today we are having our friends over to watch the game. I'm not sure if they are all going to come but if they do then we will watch the game on our big screen TV down in the basement. If they don't all come to watch the game here then we will head over to my sister-in-law's house. They have a huge high def TV we will watch the game on.
My brother's wife sent me a care package especially for today's game. Inside is a Texas Longhorn T-shirt and a brand new Texas Longhorn ball cap!! I think I have some burnt orange nail polish somewhere -- oh and let's not forget my Texas Longhorn Bell!! Tradition here in my house is that every time Texas scores any points I step outside and I RING THAT BELL. Yeah, my neighbors love me!!
Of course Fiona routes for Nebraska with her Dad and Kinsley routes for Texas with ME. We have loads of fun when we watch. We scream, yell, and sometimes we jump up and down. Yes!! HOOK EM HORNS!!
GO TEXAS!!! HOOK EM HORNS!!!
