So many Hook 'em Horns
The Hook ‘Em hand signal is arguably one of the most recognized in college football. Everyone from your three-year-old niece to your 98-year-old grandpa is flashing the horns, index and pinky fingers extended stiffly out. It’s used as a catchall greeting as well in lieu of hello, goodbye, excuse me, and thanks, brah.
The shotgun show-off
This beer-chugging, can-crushing champ cannot be beat… and he’ll let you know it. It’s never too early to put a newbie shotgunner in their place. He swaggers around like a banty rooster, challenging the rest of us chumps. If you do win the dubious honor of being the fastest shotgun in the lot, your reign as king will be peppered with additional challengers. It’s a lose/lose.
Swanky parental tailgates
Somewhere between college and being 50, a switch flips on the tailgating script. Moms and dads eschew the Solo cups for Sunday best. Just go ahead and indulge that sweet, proud UT parent offering you orange-frosted cookies and La Croix. Take this opportunity to counteract the diet of Lone Star and street meat you’ve been scarfing.
