So yeah, the Horns lost. By a LOT. That still couldn't put a damper on this Texas-ou weekend! Like I told a friend, any day that starts with corny dogs for breakfast and ends with fried bubblegum can't be all bad.
With the 11 a.m. kickoff, we didn't have too much time to see the rest of the fair, but we did swing through the car show. There we found this truck, a tribute to the first responders of 9/11:

Deep Fried Salsa? Si!
More Fletcher's Corny Dogs, the gold standard of fair fare.
So with our bellies full, we were on our way, another Texas-ou gameday in the books.
