The Longhorns will don bluebonnets on their helmets this year to honor the passing of Lady Bird Johnson.


While I’m generally against the concept of putting flower decals on football helmets, here, it is not only quintessentially Texan (for you out-of-staters, the bluebonnet is our state flower) but entirely appropriate in light of Lady Bird’s tireless efforts to beautify our Great State. I can imagine few better ways to honor one of Texas’ favorite daughters than by having our state’s greatest football team honor her memory.
