And the Houston Rodeo is the biggest in the world. We are tied to it.
Yes, Texas stereotypes galore that really have little to do with most of Houston. I never understood why the state's biggest rodeo was in the least cowboy-ish city. It belongs in Fort Worth.

What is wrong with Houston, which is in Texas, having Cowboy culture? This isn't Paris after all.

I guess the Mexicans' southern accents suggest that Houston is southern after all.

OK...Just wondering Because in Houston I have heard lots of Chicanos and Asians with a Texas accent, especially in school.

there is nothing big about it. Half of the mexican americans here have no discernible accent. The other half is a mixture of southern sounding accents and mexican accents. Texas is a southern state. The people here don't sound like Cheesh and Chang or whatever their names are.
