Typewriter Rodeo: Big 12 Football

Each week, Texas Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on a relevant headline or topic.

Big 12 conference play starts this weekend with Oklahoma State at Texas and TCU at Texas Tech. That was the inspiration for this week’s Typewriter Rodeo poem by Kari Anne Roy.


There’s football

And then there’s Big 12 football

Just like there’s chopped steak

And then there’s steak

Just like there’s a burger

And then there’s a Whataburger

Just like there’s beer

And then there’s a concoction of Tito’s and Hawaiian Punch hidden in a Camelback under the leg of your shorts

That’s right folks

Big 12 football is back

And it’s gonna be better than ever

(Depending on who you talk to of course

Depending on whether you like that steak chicken fried or served up raw

Depending on whether you want that burger well done

Depending on just how cold the Tito’s can get)

Big 12 football is back baby

And there’s something

For everyone

To love
