Rev. Jerry Huckman and Dr. Mike Huckman are among the Horned Frog Fanatics making plans to go to the Fiesta Bowl and cheer on the 12-0 team. A new Minister’s Reserved Parking sign warns, “All but Horned Frogs will be Toad.”
Five new horned toads have mysteriously appeared on Rev. Huckman’s desk in recent weeks. The congregation is practicing Horned Frog evangelism and inviting all their neighbors to come and be part of the church that founded Texas Christian University.
According to church sources, “Many Disciples ministers are educated at TCU and at Brite Seminary on the TCU campus. Around the country they are wondering what might have happened if that “one second” had not been given back to UT in the Big 12 Championship game.” (However, replays showed it was the correct call under NCAA regulations. TCU finished ranked fourth in the BCS standings behind Alabama, Texas and the University of Cincinnati.)
First Christian Church is diverse with students and graduates of UT, TAMU, Baylor and other schools in the old Southwest Conference who are being tolerant of all the Horned Frog Fanaticism. “Come share the fun on Sunday as Advent is celebrated and plans are made for the big football game on Jan. 4th,” they said.
