Goodbye Bevo XIII

...For it's Bevo (XIII) we love the best
Hail, hail the gang's all here
And it's Bevo (XIII) we put to rest

You were born a winner; proven when you became a World Champion Steer at the age of three. Then you moved to Austin to continue your winning streak. You became a symbol of "courage, fighting ability, nerve, lust of combat, efficiency in deadly encounters and the holy spirit of 'Never Say Die' ".

You stood proudly on the side lines as a good luck charm to your boys in burnt orange for 16 seasons. You outlasted three head coaches and saw a number of players come and go. You saw Ricky win the Heisman, traveled to Washington D.C. to take part in President Bush's inaugural festivities and, although you retired in 2004 still got to see your boys win the National Championship last year.

Bevo XIII (Sunrise Express), you were a Texas idol. You've become a Texas legend. Goodbye, old friend. God's speed.

Take a moment, listen to TAPS and say a little prayer for Bevo XIII...
