Texans love their sports, even when it gets cold outside. But “winter sports” in the Lone Star State don’t exactly look like they do in other places. That was the inspiration for Typewriter Rodeo’s Jodi Egerton as she wrote this week’s poem.

Winter Sports … In Texas 

Put on your woolen hat

And your cozy mittens too

Let’s gather up to watch some sports

The way we Texans do

It’s wintertime, so winter sports

Must be the way to go




…I honestly don’t know

It turns out most Texas sports

Run spring, summer, and fall.

But winter, hey, it’s 72 degrees.

…Let’s go play some Football!
