Longtime readers will recall my outrage that the Audubon Society’s Birds of North America book declared Texas to be in the East.
Dear Audubuddies: I apologize.
Texas Christian University, land of the Horned Frog, in Fort Worth, TX, says it will join the Big East. A Texas team in the East? Connecticut? West Virginia? Rutgers? Well, sure. Just an easy two- or three-day car trip away.
The worst part? The inevitable invasion of West Virginians to Texas. Yikes.
Anyhow, the Dallas Cowboys have been in the NFC East forever and the world hasn’t ended. Although this season most Cowboys fans wish it had.
So good luck, TCU, and thanks a pantload for reminding me I am now an Easterner. When the other kids start making fun of you because you’re a Horned Frog, don’t say I didn’t warn you …
