Yesterday I learned of yet another appealing Texas Book Festival session vying for my time at 2 p.m. Saturday. My good friend — and big-time mentor during my adolescence — Bobby Hawthorne will be discussing his latest book, Longhorn Football: An Illustrated History, as part of a panel titled Pigskin & Politics: Two Texas Obsessions.

I better quit studying the festival schedule, or else the whole weekend may start to look like this.
