2006 Rose Bowl - Go Horns!

I am not normally a big Texas Longhorns fan; I usually root for the Fightin’ Texas Aggies. However, in any contest with foreigners - especially foreigners from the Left Coast, I will take their side. Go Horns! Beat the Hell out of Southern Cal!

In their honor, reproduced below is the Prayer of the Cattle Fold.

I drive the kine within
The gateway of the herds,
On voice of the dead,
On voice of bull,
On voice of pairing,
On voice of grayling cow
White-headed, strong-headed, of udder.
Be the big stone of the base of the couple
Without ceasing, without decreasing,
As a full-weighted tether
Trailing from the hunch of your rump,
Till bright daylight comes in to-morrow.

The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit,
Save you, and shield you, and tend you,
Till I or mine shall meet you again
