Old school days long gone, but not forgotten: Texas congressman's streaking stunt exposed

The gloves have come off in the tight election race between two Texas congressmen -- and every other article of clothing appears to be fair game as well.

Democrats on Monday circulated old newspaper clippings of a 1974 college streaking stunt staged by hundreds of students -- including then-18-year-old Pete Sessions -- at Southwest Texas State University.

The conservative Republican congressman -- who wrote a column condemning Janet Jackson's nude display during her 2004 Super Bowl halftime performance -- apparently bared his bottom with about 300 others in a stunt that ended with arrests and a clash with police. Newspapers were filled with nude photos and headlines like: "Dudes, Broads, Bare Bods."

Southwest Texas students were apparently trying to break a streaking record set by another university amid a nationwide college streaking craze.

"Congressman Sessions' old school days are long gone," said Sessions' spokesman Chris Homan. "He recognizes it as an immature action of an 18-year-old college freshman."

Could you cow tip and streak at the same time?

I never heard of cow tipping until I got to UCONN. I never did it, but some of the football players in my dorm bragged about going up behind the School of Ag and tipping cows.

Personally, I was too busy smoking pot, drinking beer, and attending my Socialism 101 class to care about hitting cows broadside at midnight....

Was Ted's operating out of the trailer over near Huskies?

I know it was close to Huskies. Within walking distance of the athlete's dorm. They had some kick ass melted cheese on bread grinders.
