School Spirit

Longhorn
Kurt grew up in Texas, first in Houston, then later the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, then he moved to the oasis of culture known as Austin and attended University of Texas. (See logo above.) I know all this. What I didn't know until this year was something about the cheerleaders at UT. Kurt was not really that into football but if the Longhorns are playing, he'll have a gander. We were watching one day and they cut to a shot of the cheerleaders. Kurt said, in a quiet, mock cheerleader voice, "Ya'll fight! Ya'll win!"

I turned to him and said, "What the heck was that?!" And he explained that this is what they say on game day. I just about peed my pants.

Now whenever we watch football -- Cowboys too, naturally -- we give a soft Texas drawl "Ya'll fight!"

PS. Hook 'em Horns!
PPS. Name the school mascot, without looking it up, win a prize. (Kurt, you are not eligible to win, sorry.)
