Fanthropology: Why Are You A Loyal Longhorn Fan?

Kevork Djansezian

Tell us why you're a loyal Longhorn fan for a chance to win 2 tickets to the bowl game of your choice, including airfare and hotel, courtesy of Hyundai.

You're at this website for the same reason that I founded it: you love the Texas Longhorns. What's your story? Where does your loyalty to the Longhorns come from? What does it mean to you?

I'd love to hear your story in any case, but let me give you a very good reason to share your thoughts in the comments. I'm going to read all of the comments, and choose one of them as my favorite, and that reader will be BON's finalist in a promotion that will send one fan to the bowl game of his or her choice, with airfare, hotel, and two game tickets, all courtesy of Hyundai. Yes, any bowl game. You can fly out to watch Texas, wherever that may be. Or you can fly to Miami and watch the BCS Championship Game. Head to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. Anywhere you want.

So here's how this works. I will select BON's finalist for the Hyundai "Fanthropology" finalist based on their answer in the comments. The finalist will then team up with me for a front-page post that will run two weeks from now, in which we'll be talking about our Longhorn fandom -- hopefully in a really damn entertaining way, because if our post is deemed the winner by the judges (we'll be competing against other SBN blogs), then you win the big prize to the bowl game.

So have at it, and I'm purposefully going to keep the prompt pretty broad, because I don't want to restrict the what or how of your answers. The topic is why we're passionate Longhorn fans, and there are a lot of ways to talk about that -- from a thousand-word essay to a twelve-word haiku. The only requirement is that you talk about your Longhorn fandom. You can talk about where your loyalty came from, or what it means to you now, or the insane behaviors for which your fandom is responsible, or any other related angle. You only get one entry, though, so make it count. If you write more than one comment, make sure it's clear to me which one I should consider for the contest.

And that's it. The comments are yours. The first step to an all-expenses bowl game vacation starts here and now. You have until Monday at midnight to submit your comment.
