Today is a sad day for Texas. Whether your a Texas Longhorn, a Fighting Texas Aggie, a Baylor Bear, a TCU Horned Frog, a SMU Mustang, a Texas Tech Red Raider or another collegiate supporter, we can all agree on something: Darrell K Royal was a football icon.
Downtown Dallas is approximately 200 miles from Downtown Austin. Therefore, a round trip is approximately 400 miles.
Now, knowing that rough calculation, what would you say if I told you the following: "I've driven to Austin and back to Dallas 7,500 times... IN THE SAME CAR."
What happens if I take that number, 7,500, and put it into miles. If you traveled from Dallas to Austin and back 7,500 times, you would have traveled 3,000,000 miles. Yes, you read that correctly: three million miles. That's a lot of ground to cover. Now remember, I said that the three million miles were all completed in the same car.
