Looks like the LSU Tigers and the University of Texas Longhorns will square off in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day. I graduated LSU in ‘89, and my wife graduated from UT in ‘97. So we have a mixed marriage. Tragically, I discovered this evening that she has already taught our three-year-old son how to do the “Hook ‘em, Horns” sign. With Cholly Mac as my witness, that boy is gonna know by heart the Hot boudin chant by the third Sunday of Advent. Even more evidence, though, of my not taking my obligation toward the boy’s religious instruction seriously: he has a couple of Longhorns t-shirts, but no LSU vestments. Shame, shame.
