Luckily I went to UT and fit right in!
But truly, we are Longhorn loco. We have life memberships and season tickets and closets full of burnt orange. We do tailgating and team chants. In good times and bad, being a Longhorn fan
Now every year we go to Dallas for the Red River Rivalry, when we play OU at the Cotton Bowl during the State Fair of Texas. It is a big deal... I joke that it is our Christmas. Pops & Dede do give us the trip and tickets as a Christmas gift... but it is much more than that. It is the family time, the excitement, the amount of joy packed into one really fun day!
Pops has attended 42 OU weekends in a row. (seriously!) Skip has missed a few in his life for important things like serving overseas in the Army, and the birth of our second child last year.
Speaking of children, we start the girls early. Hadley wore the dress and bloomers that Kherington wore her first year... and fans everywhere were commenting and asking to take pictures of/with her... mainly her cute tush!
We lost this year.
But no matter, we still had a hell of a time.
And you know what?
OU still sucks.
