The Hardest Way Possible to Get From Austin to Dallas
For those wondering how to fill their Texas-OU game week schedule, this morning's Austin American-Statesman has the complete rundown of events, beginning with Thursday's "Run to Dallas" at 11 a.m. Says the Statesman, "Coach Mack Brown hands game ball to NROTC students at Royal-Memorial Stadium to start fundraising relay run to Cotton Bowl." That sounds like not-fun -- but, as has been the case for the last 25 years (!), it's for a good cause: This year, the University of Texas Naval Reserve Officer’s Training Corps will indeed run 200 miles in 27 hours for Lance Armstrong's LiveSTRONG. Or, Thursday at 6 p.m., you can just go hang with former UT players Hodges Mitchell, Matt Nordgren and Kalen Thornton at Victory Tavern. Your choice. --Robert Wilonsky
