My friend Jeffrey's family, like my own family, is a little obsessed with Texas Longhorn football. They live in Houston, but they drive to Austin throughout the fall for games. Jeffrey is a third-generation Longhorn, and the license plate of his car reads "I LUV UT." So it was no surprise that when he and his wife left their five-and-a-half-month son, Logan, with his parents for the night, his father decided to start the training early.
In the video below, John (or "Poppy") plays the university's alma mater, "The Eyes of Texas," on the iPad, patting his first grandchild's back to the beat. "They watched it over and over for 20 minutes!" Jeffrey's mom, Julie, wrote on Facebook. Based on Logan's intense focus, it seems his family has nothing to worry about. His first words may be "Hook 'em, Horns."
