Arrogance

Filed under: Uncategorized — Neil @ 3:24 pm

We all struggle w/ being prideful. We typically try to cover it w/ false humility. However, not many are boastful in their arrogance. What made me think of this? Texas.

Texas is full of arrogance. Sayings like “Don’t Mess W/ Texas” and “Everything is Bigger in Texas” is evident of this. It all dates back to their national independence. I like Texas. I have family there & have always enjoyed visiting. However, while watching the University of Texas take on Oklahoma State I was reminded of its arrogance.

As the UT players came out of their locker room at the beginning of the game they did so as 2 of their team members led the charge waving U.S. flags (click here to see video proof). I suppose they would say that they are just proudly representing the U.S. I doubt that would be honest though. The Dallas Cowboys proudly proclaim themselves as America’s Team. I missed the day we voted on that. Texas likes Texas & assumes the rest of the country does as well. Texas has a Texas sized ego.

Texans, what do you say?
