    ESPN article: Arnaud

    Surprised to see AA when I opened an article on ESPN. Pretty interesting read about superstitions in college football.

    I don't even know what he is trying to say there, exactly. Is he trying to out patriot "Love it or leave it" Stanzi?

    I really struggled with what he was trying to get across there too.

    I'm guessing he made some joke about not being a leftist and the writter just totally failed to translate it onto paper.

    I put my money on Arnaud in an "America"-off with Stanzi though.

    I work with Austen's 8th grade coach who is also an ISU football letter winner. Just last week he was telling me about a time when some of his players started low riding their football pants thinking they were cool. One day, Austen was flashing some bright green plaid boxers, when he started razzing him about how the other team is going to see them and rip them off at the bottom of the pile. He said Austen stopped low riding after that.

    Definitely. AA just sounds American. RS sounds Russian, or communist.

    Anagram for Rick Stanzi:

    Nazi Tricks.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
