Football season is off and running. Even if I dont follow the stats I know its here because everywhere I look people are dressed in Burnt Orange, I mean Tshirt, Shorts, sweatpants, headbands, carrying umbrellas, sitting in chairs, EVERYWHERE its the Longhorn Burnt Orange.
This is not a bad thing, its one of the things that pulls Austin together, the masses the everyday everywhere everyone wearing Burnt Orange in support of the local University of Texas football team. You go to the supermarket, its there, to the car wash, to the mall, uptown, downtown.. Fall is definitely in the air when Mack Brown the head football coach appears weekly on the local radio call in show.
