I was there. I did not enjoy it. I also did not enjoy the obnoxiousness of some State fans in my proximity, who brought home the Semmes Luckett remark quoted in Jim Dee’s piece about this rivalry in GQ online– that State fans “hate us more than they love themselves.”
Not in their defense, but in the interest of evenhandedness, I am also ashamed at the obnoxiousness of Ole Miss fans in certain parts of the Grove– a friend who Grove-tents with me had visitors (teenage relatives) who walked through the middle of the Grove wearing State sweatshirts and the like and got cursed at. Uncool, people.
But I forget. Was I supposed to be talking about a football game? Did we have one recently?
