Gold-Bears for the Golden Bears

28 Dec

Texas 21, Cal 10

Dec. 28, 2011 • Holiday Bowl

When Texas faced Cal in its 2011 bowl game, it was tempting to go back to our tried-and-true Teddy Grahams or even honey in honor of the Golden Bears. But the “golden” part of the mascot’s name provided the inspiration, and Haribo Gold-Bears were called into action.

I didn’t make the trip to San Diego for this bowl game, so our TEXAS was spelled at the foot of—appropriately enough—our UT Christmas tree.

These two guys were kind enough to watch the game with me. (The pizza might’ve been the real draw.)

Even our “little” ChaCha stuck around to cheer on the Horns.

It might not have been the typical tailgating scene, but any game-watching that ends with a Longhorn win works for me!
