Alert readers have noticed something strange – the current covers of Fort Worth Weekly and Fort Worth, Texas magazine look almost identical. Both publications feature cover stories on the TCU football team’s magical year.
However, there’s a big difference. Our cover photo was taken this freaking year and features this year’s undefeated team.
The photo on their cover features last year’s team, which is odd considering the cover’s subhead — “Horned Frog Football Of Yesterday And Today.”
A more accurate headline might be “Horned Frog Football Of Yesterday And Last Year.”
The story by Dan Jenkins discusses TCU’s first national championship team and the current team. But last year’s team appears to be pictured on their cover. You can see the back of Robert Henson’s jersey, and Henson is now a Washington Redskins rookie. Remember, he’s the one who caused an uproar earlier this year by calling Redskins fans “dimwits.”
Also, pictured on their magazine cover is No. 39, which appears to be Jason Phillips, now a rookie with the Baltimore Ravens.
