Braggin' on Texas
By

Rating

Quick! Do you know . . . Which college was the first in the world to award a degree in jazz? Which state had the most drive-in movie theaters? Who was the first person to push a peanut up Pike's Peak with his nose? Who invented Frito Pie?

Well, all the answers can be found here in Texas. "Texas Brag" is a long cherished tradition in the nation's second largest state. But the fact is that Texas does have more than its share of unique people, places, events, inventions, and products: many of them the first, the largest, or the only representative of its kind. "Braggin' on Texas" takes an accurate but less than serious look at the Lone Star State--both past and present--by presenting some of the most obscure, convoluted, and occasionally outrageous achievements of Texans and their state. So sit back and prepare to enjoy Texas as you've never knnown it before!
