A Nice Football Article

Recommended Posts

College football in the South is a religion.

It is a crafted party for everyone to enjoy.

Passions run deep and loyalty to one's team is at the highest level.

Everyone gets a vicarous high from a win and a sick to the stomach feeling with a loss.

You want your team to win and all other teams to lose so you can smile when you see their fans, even when driving down the road and you notice their school decals on their vehicles.

My boat has a big ALABAMA decal on the windshield, compliments of dumb son who loves Bamasux. I have countered with lots of LSU decals on the transom. I guess you can say i have a conflicted boat.

My granddog has a Bamasux bandana around his neck and when he visits I walk him with my LSU leash. Comments from others? All the time. My wife and I put the LSU baseball cap on my grandson when he is with us even though he will have some silly Bamasux tee shirt on when they drop him off.

Just remember what one of the players said at the SEC Football Day interviews: Playing in the South is better because the air is fresher, the girls are prettier and the toilet paper is heavier.

Geaux Tigers!

Amen to that. College football is a religion down here. With the exception of my wife and her family, they are "nice auburn fans". Meaning they pull for other SEC schools when they aren't playing auburn. I thinks its a load of crap. The rest of us hope the other teams lose for exactly the same reason you stated.

War d**n Eagle!

For sure it is a religion down there.

Two years ago we went to Martinsville for a cup race. I forget who the vols were playing, but no matter where we went, every store, restaurant, gas station or whatever, it seemed like everyone was emulating Bill Dance. They were either wearing orange clothing or the official hat of Bill Dance. Most sporting both clothing and the hat.

Cars were sporting those flags that attach to the windows. Most had at least one on each side. It went beyond religion. It bordered on an epicemic of rabid madness.

Last year we were visiting our daughter in GA. On I-20 west the traffic on one Friday seemed like an endless caravan/convoy of vehicles from luxury cars to beat up pickups, all sporting the same type of flags as above, but these sported a big "G" rather than a "T" on them. Don't know if they were headed to 'bama or LA or any other point west. It looked like the entire state of GA was on an evacuation route out of state.

Up here in the Northeast, you never see anything remotely resembling the fervor in the South. Neither good nor bad. Just a difference in regional cultures.

What does intrigue me is that the South is stereotyped as rednecked hicks, while the North is supposedly more academic. Yet there seems to be very little college pride in academia, and a ubiquitous presence of college pride in hicksville.
