"Forgive Me Tedford, For I Have Sinned."

EDSBS had a pretty fun post idea which generated a good amount of discussions: What blasphemies have you committed upon California gold and blue? What are your Cal Bear fandom transgressions?

Examples from other schools:

ORSON, Florida: “I like Georgia’s colors.”

HOLLY, Tennessee: “I think the recitation of Neyland’s Maxims is one of the dumber traditions in college football and would like nothing better than to see it scrapped.”

PB, Texas: “I don’t hate Kirk Herbstreit like I should. It’s pitiful.  He has some weird charisma that overwhelms my rational mind. Maddening.”

SIGNAL TO NOISE, USC: “I’ve started to hate Mark Sanchez. I was uneasy with it; there was something I couldn’t place.  I was kind of “well, he’s the QB of the team I root for,” but when the announcers last week compared him to Vince from Entourage, my hate made sense.”

ROCKABYE REGGIE NELSON, Florida: “I prefer games on TV to games in person.”

WORSTFAN, Ohio State: “I want Ohio State to lose again, so I can stop trying to rationalize how they still deserve to be in consideration to be “in it”.  I say this as a holder of two Ohio State degrees and former 5 year resident of the 43210.”

BURRITOBROSSHITS, Florida: “Feigning love for the Buckeyes to get laid.  Actually worked but I felt really dirty and guilty afterwards.  I didn’t have the heart to tell her, though, so I just bounced.”

MONDAY MORNING PUNTER, Ohio State: “Daryll Clark is the man! He strikes me as the kind of guy that could take a girl out to a nice dinner the one minute and then toss her down a flight of stairs the next.”

LT. WINSLOW, Miami: “Fuck it. I don’t regret it. I shared a brief, romantic moment with my coke-whore ex girlfriend’s best friend inside the privacy of a stall in the women’s bathroom in the west endzone of the Orange Bowl at the ‘06 Miami-FSU game. There were little teardrop shaped titties and a baggie of white powder and I’d do it again if I had the chance.”

Just a few of my personal examples:

  • I like the 'Furd when they're competitive, not when they're a doormat. It adds flavor to the rivalry. Also increases possibility of schadenfreude for the fanbase, which will create deep emotional bonds for everyone involved. Or alcoholism.
  • UCLA's home powder blue unis are sweeet. Although our navy blue unis aren't too far behind. And I still think those gold things are garish.
  • Once in awhile I hum USC's fight song unconsciously. When I realize what I'm doing, I feel the urge to pull my tongue out of my mouth. Seems like the à propos reaction.

    Spill your own.
