New Big Tex to Be Unveiled September 27


Mark your calendars. Tex will have a larger, higher base, which will be covered with Big Tex history. I’ll be interested to see how they cover the events of Oct. 19, 2012, aka “The Day That Will Live In Regional Renown.”

The new Big Tex design hasn’t been unveiled yet (other than his hands) but I expect it to look something like this.

    Um, are you the only media outlet in town that didn’t receive the State Fair of Texas’ news release? The makeover will be fairly radical:

    “The new, improved Big Tex will wear a blue hoodie, sagging blue jeans, and dark colored gloves, and will have distinctive gaps in his teeth.”

    Plus one for you, Daniel.
