Is it just me, or is having a company name like ‘UNT’ on the wall a disaster waiting to happen?

No wonder they placed it out of reach.

Graffiti artists are like sand though. They get everywhere and anywhere. The example below from Reddit made my palms sweat.

The featured image was taken in Dallas, and after a quick Google found that it stands for University of North Texas. I don’t know much about this college (I used to live very close to the Texas Tech campus in Lubbock however) and remember driving through Austin and being blown away by the stadium for the Longhorns. I couldn’t believe college football was so popular.

That is one difference between living in the UK and the USA. We have the Premier League, one of the biggest leagues in the world and as England is so compact in comparison, you are never too far from a top flight team. My nearest is a ten minute drive however as they were only promoted last season and have lost the first two games of this current season, how long they will stay in this league is anyone’s guess. The USA is huge, Texas alone could swallow the whole of the UK up. With that in mind cities with large populations are vast distances from the NFL, NHL and the like. Universities give these cities a fantastic sporting identity.

Watching Texas Tech in Lbk, TX. Raider Power!

I am not sure if this is the case with all large nations (Brazil, Canada, Russia, India, I am calling you out!), and I will find if that is the case in Australia in a couple of weeks time.

Happy Tuesday!

    1. Of course it is! But I have no experience of that nation. Is college sports as popular there considering how vast your nation is?
