No, it’s not myÂ Acura theory (which also happens to be true BTW), it’s the other one.Â
It’s no secret that I have a high disdain for a cetain college in Waco, Texas whose colors happen to be green and gold.Â One reason for this is that the graduates (or alumni, if you will)Â of this institution of higher learning has to name drop where they went to college every single time, as if its a place of exceptionally high distinction.Â Â Â Â It’s something IÂ mentioned before, and yes, it drives me batty.Â Normal people that didn’t attend this university will simply say something like “when I was in college.”Â However, these folks will always replace the word “college” with the name of their sacred institution.Â
It’s a fun little theory that these alumni (especially church friends and family) Â like to tease me about because they think I’m wrong and that I’m over-reacting, the most prominent being WifeGeeding.Â However, I found more proof to support this theory.
It turns out that ESPN has a new football blog written by Matt Mosley.Â On the home page of this blog is his picture with a short bio:
So far this is the most blatant form of this name dropping yet.Â I also decided to check out other ESPN columnists and found that none list where they attended college.
