What It's Like to Grow Up in Texas



Exam tomorrow. Preparing myself to choke like no one has choked in the history of the Oregon bar. To entertain you whilst I am away, I leave you with this clip from The Big Bang Theory. I don't normally watch the show, but was watching it tonight because my brain is fried and I was too tired to get off the couch to get the remote. This episode is great because Sheldon explains football, and why he knows anything about it, to his roommates. The pertinent part begins at the 1:15 minute mark. This is basically the same reason I know anything about football. The first time David took me to a game and I jumped up screaming "go, go, GO, GOOOO!" the first time there was a completed pass, he looked at me like I'd been possessed. I had to explain that no, that's just the Texan in me.

Sheldon: "I grew up in Texas. Football is ubiquitous in Texas. There's pro-football, college football, high school football, pee-wee football... In fact, every form of football except the original, European football. Which Texans believe to be a commie plot. If you're interested, I also know all about frying meat that isn't chicken as if it were chicken."

I'm assuming if you're reading this, you are on the Other Side of the bar exam.

Take a few days off, get some well-desrved rest, then let us know how you did!!
