With the Texas Longhorns finishing the season with 5 wins, it has been assumed that the Horns would not be going bowling this year. In a huge surprise, it was announced on Wednesday that the Texas Longhorns in fact would be bowling after all. In a feature article on SB Nation Barking Carnival, it was announced that Texas has accepted an invitation to the Fun Times Bowl.
Here is a word from Coach Charlie Strong regarding the announcement:
“The players and coaches are “really pumped” to appear at the prestigious Fun Times Bowl later this month. Fun Times Bowl Committee Chairman Doug Rootie expressed similar excitement to host the Longhorns.
“Yeah, it’s cool I guess,” said Chairman Rootie. “The Longhorns should give Fun Times a real revenue boost. They reserved 16 lanes for two off-peak hours, and we expect they’ll spend a lot of money at the snack bar and arcade. ”
“Also, I’m just a shift manager,” added Chairman Rootie. “So please stop calling me ‘Chairman Rootie.'”
“We’re open to the public,” explained Rootie. “So, I suppose everyone is technically ‘invited’ to the Fun Times Bowl during normal operating hours.”
The Fun Times Bowl has hosted a number of exciting games through the years, including “several dudes who have rolled 300” according to Chairman Rootie. But the Fun Times Bowl may be best known for its exclusive athletic apparel contract.
“Every paying bowler gets free shoe rental,” noted Rootie. “They just have to leave a driver’s license or one of their own shoes with the front desk.”
“And socks are absolutely required,” added the chairman. “The health department is pretty serious about that.”
So, all you Longhorn fans planning on bowling with the team…please remember to wear your socks!
