Y’ALL. HOOK ‘EM HORNS.
It’s always a good day to be a longhorn. Particularly yesterday.
October 12, 2013. Our UT Longhorns beat the OU Sooners in the Red River Rivalry 36-20!
For those of you who don’t know, this game is not just “another” game in the longhorn’s football season…it is THE ultimate rivalry game of the season.
Played in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl right in the middle of the Texas state fair, thousands of students, fans, and families travel to Dallas to cheer on the horns and eat Fletcher’s corny dogs and tons of other fried foods.
Now there are certain details that accompany this weekend affair other than just attending the game…and that certain detail: coolers. The infamous fraternity cooler.
Fraternity coolers go something like this: frat member asks sorority girl to the TX-OU game. Girl gets super giddy and excited and now has the task of painting a cooler inspired by the guys fraternity and his favorite things. At the end of the week, the boy has a personalized cooled for all his drinks.
I couldn’t go to TX-OU this weekend because we had a soccer game (beat Baylor on Friday 2-1 in our breast cancer awareness pink out game…yay!) so I decided to take the task of painting some of my friends’ coolers for them. After three weeks of painting, painting, and more painting, I finally finished them all on Thursday night. Perfect timing considering all the guys and gals load up on greyhound buses and make the traffic-filled drive up to Dallas. I painted 5 coolers and here are the finished products…enjoy!
Oh cooler season…that’s all I can say. Until next year… Xx.
Hook ’em horns, people. Hook them freaking horns. So proud of our football team.
