Okay. I'm all for a little friendly rivalry but the problem with living in Austin on days like today is the non-alumni fans that run their mouths to total strangers. Mind you, I have some friends that did not attend UT that like to talk friendly trash to me but they do it with good intentions to 'get my goat.'
I went to Walgreens to pick up some diet coke and potato chips and some random guy (that by my best assessment, did not attend UT) decided to tell me: "It's going to be a long night for you." And, "At least you wore your hat." Note: by hat he meant my Tech Alumni shirt.
I paid good money to be able to, in his words, 'wear my hat.' I wear it proudly because I love Tech! I don't know if the Raiders will win today but I know that Leach and the boys have worked hard to get here and we are finally getting some well-deserved recognition for that work. If we lose, they have properly ranked the teams this year. If we win, that jack-ass will have to eat his smug words!
My reaction to this guy. Nothing but a smile because I know something he doesn't know...given he attended neither school. WRECK 'EM TECH!!!!
In the words of Bob Knight, "I deeply hope we beat their asses today!" Thank you, General. I hope we do too!
