Austin’s “spirit animal,” Matthew McConaughey, continues to represent for the Longhorns at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
The No. 1 Longhorn fan posed for a picture with UT Austin’s Olympic gold medalists Jack Conger, Townley Haas and Jimmy Feigen. Complete, of course, with a round of “Hook ’em” hand signs.
McConaughey had previously broken out a special stars-and-stripes Hook ’em t-shirt just for the games.
The actor also posed for a picture with the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, after cheering him on during a race which won him his 22nd Olympic gold medal. Phelps isn’t a Longhorn, but he’s alright, or whatever.
