PHOTO: Houston's April Fool's helmet wins the day
'I've always thought that the word 'of' did not get the respect it deserved,' Tony Levine says in April Fool's description.
That tweet linked to this press release from the official Houston football site announcing the Cougars' new "UOH" logo and this revamped helmet:
“I’ve always thought that the word ‘of’ did not get the respect it deserved,” Levine said in the statement. “When you look at the way we speak and form acronyms - for example, the United States of America being U.S.A. - ‘of’ always gets excluded. And as I’m sure most people have, I’ve often times wondered why ‘of’ is spelled o-f and not u-v.”
This was, of course, all an elaborate April Fool's Day joke -- and a damn funny one, the sort that almost makes it worth wading through the piles and piles of unfunny jokes and false headlines that make up Twitter on this worst Twitter day of the year. Giving Levine the last (also funny) word:
I hope you enjoyed this morning's April Fool's tweet. We are not changing our logo. However, we are considering changing the mascot.— Tony Levine (@CoachTonyLevine) April 1, 2013
