I'd like to call off the college gear war before it starts. Sara has made mention on a couple of occassions that we are starting to accumulate some Aggie things for the baby. She has sent out the SOS to those affiliated with Ohio State for a proportional response. Let's all keep our heads about us. I'm afraid we are going to set off a powder keg that will be referred to in history textbooks as "The Great 21st Century College War". This isn't a simple, friendly confrontation between the Aggie backers and the Buckeye backers. This could escalate into a major inter-sectional confrontation! I can imagine a doomsday scenario where we have a flood of items bearing all kinds of logos and mascots. My dad will be sending an Arkansas Razorback Hoghead, Becky will be sending Ole Miss gear (which is OK with me since I am a Rebel from Richland High School), Ben will be sending Bucknell stuff, Ryan will be sending Texas Tech stuff, Toby will send a Bob Stoops OU visor...and the Fishers and John Curtis will send t-sip crap. For those of you unfamiliar with the term I just used, a "t-sip" is a fan of the texas longhorns, or t.u.
So let's all agree to a cease fire before this gets ugly. And let's all agree to shield the little one from t-sip crap. Thanks in advance for your support.
