Happy Hook 'ems.

Sixty years ago tonight, Harley Clark introduced a hand sign that has become a big part of every Texas fan's life: the "Hook 'em, Horns."

Last year, when Mr. Clark passed away, I posted a random collection of "hook 'em" pics from our family archive. Today, I'm adding them (and a few others) here to preserve them in our unofficial digital scrapbook.

Thank you, Harley, for giving Longhorn fans everywhere an easy way to express joy (when our team scores), acknowledgment (when we see a fellow Horns fan on the road), or sheer exhilaration (on a roller coaster). Hook 'em!
