    Re: Breaking News: Big Tex Burns

    Wasnt sure what this Big tex thing looked like before it went up in flames so I googled it. It looks like it was some sort of inflatable thing. It looked like it had guy wires holding it up. Was it only up during the fair?

    Only during fair. Not inflatable. But one of the scariest awkward things I've ever seen. Built in the 50's maybe, and still looks like it today.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.
