I had the privilege, in 2006, to see the Horns at practice. It was an amazing experience in a million different ways. Really emotional. Really hard to put in words. Best way I can say it was.. that it was electric!!
Let me share a bit of Austin and the Longhorns with you:
Here's the Capital of Texas. Gorgeous!
Can you tell I'm excited? Here are a few snaps from the practice. Took these before I realized I wasn't supposed to. I felt bad, but at the same time.. how cool that I got pictures of Colt McCoy before he was the real thing (he's the QB if you didn't know)!! And now here he is ... 4 years later .... leading Texas in a fight for the National Championship! I feel like I've been able to be a real part of it!
I'm just going to let the snaps flow now. The game will start soon... GO HORNS!! No matter what... I LOVE YA!! Hook 'em \m/ WHOOT WHOOT!!!!
Yes, that's Colt with his helmet off! Yes, that's the UT Tower lite up in burnt orange! Yes, that's me. Yes, I have goosebumps.
For me... Cheering my head off for Texas = happiness!!
AND.. I have a nice little surprise for you when Texas wins! Bet you can't guess what it is ;)
