A friend had asked me for this TWO YEARS ago, and I never got around to it until now. I’m a terrible friend. Either way, after a two-year delay, here he is:

It’s Bevo! Our beloved longhorn, mascot of the great University of Texas.

It’s not the first time that I’ve made a college mascot. Last year I made a little cougar for Bare Bowls food truck while they served the hungry masses at the University of Houston campus. I earned my professional degree at UH, but UT is where I spent my undergrad years, and even though I never graduated from there (I jokingly tell people I’m a biochem dropout), my years at UT carry so much more meaning to me. It’s where I learned to be comfortable in my own skin, it’s where I learned that I REALLY suck at Counterstrike, it’s where I learned some great life lessons from some of the best professors I’ve ever had, and it’s where I solidified a friendship from high school and met two more people who would become my closest friends in life. UH built my career, but UT built my character.

So with that, Bevo holds a special place in my heart. It’s been a long two years, but he’s finally come to life! Apparently our football season is off to a rocky start, but maybe this lil’ dude can bring some good luck, starting tomorrow against Ole Miss. HOOK ‘EM!
