Apparently, the Texas Longhorn fan base doesn’t stretch across the United States or even just the planet. The fandom seems to actually stretch out into outer space and that is pretty apparent when one astronaut gave his favorite team shoutout while working on the International Space Station.
College Spun shared the cool photo of Danish astronaut Andreas Mogensen wearing his Longhorns shirt and giving the “Hook ‘Em Horns” hand signal. For one, I didn’t even know that Texas had fans from Denmark, let alone working in outer freaking space.
I wonder if he is able to get Longhorn Network way up there. I wouldn’t be surprised with all the technology surrounding him.
If he wasn’t able to see his team play last Saturday, that may be a contributing factor as to why he is still a fan of theirs. Either way, I’m sure Texas will be able to repay him in some way when he comes back home.
