Texas,

First off, I have to apologize again for the very OLD intro music - I haven't lived in Houston for more than seven years.  I promise I will get a new intro made eventually.

In this episode of Riding with the window down... I decided to crank out a quick show based on a conversation I had about what made Texas men different.  As I state in the show, there will be plenty of folks out there who disagree and I'm cool with that.

Let me know what you think.
