Texas Longhorns bluebonnet decalTo honor Lady Bird Johnson, LBJ, and the Johnson family the Longhorns will wear a bluebonnet decal on their helmets for the upcoming season:

During the 2007 season, Texas Football will wear special wildflower helmet stickers to honor President Lyndon B. Johnson, Lady Bird Johnson and the Johnson family, head coach Mack Brown announced Monday.

“Because President Johnson has meant so much to our state, our country and our University, and Lady Bird is our First Lady who we just lost, and the Johnson family who has meant so much to all of us, we are going to put a wildflower in their honor on the back of our helmets for the full year,” Brown said.

Not exactly the most manly sticker I’ve ever seen but it’s a nice gesture to a family that has meant a lot to the university, the state of Texas, and the country. Relatively small little sticker though maybe if it was off to the left of the number it would stand out a little less. I’m sure the ABC announcers will mention it the first few games and then we’ll all forget it’s even there.

Plus, the last time we wore a flower on our uniforms things worked out alright. If that happens again I’m sure we’d all be fine if the 2008 uniform was covered in daisies.
