  • College football: North v South

    This is pretty funny -- and accurate here and there.......


    Women’s Accessories:
    NORTH: ChapStick in back pocket and a $20 bill in the front pocket.
    SOUTH: Louis Vuitton duffel with two lipsticks, waterproof mascara, and a fifth of bourbon. Money not necessary - that’s what dates are for.

    Stadium Size:
    NORTH: College football stadiums hold 20,000 people.
    SOUTH: High school football stadiums hold 20,000 people.

    Fathers:

    NORTH: Also a physics major.
    SOUTH: Also Miss America.

    Heroes:
    NORTH: Rudy Guliani
    SOUTH: Bear Bryant, Archie, Eli and Peyton Manning, Bo Jackson

    Getting Tickets:
    NORTH: Five days before the game you walk into the ticket office on campus and purchase tickets.
    SOUTH: Five months before the game you walk into the ticket office on campus and put your name on the waiting list for tickets.

    Friday Classes After a Thursday Night Game:
    NORTH: Students and teachers not sure if they’re going to the game, because they have classes on Friday.
    SOUTH: Teachers cancel all Friday classes because they don’t want to see the two or three hung over students that might actually make it to class.

    Parking:
    NORTH: An hour before game time, the University opens the campus for game parking.
    SOUTH: RVs sporting their school flags begin to arrive on Wednesday for weekend festivities. The really faithful arrive on Tuesday.

    Game Day:
    NORTH: A few students party in the dorm and watch ESPN on TV.
    SOUTH: Every student wakes up, has a beer for breakfast, and rushes over to where ESPN is broadcasting “Game Day Live” to try to get on camera and wave to the idiots up north, who wonder why “Game Day Live” is never broadcast from their campus.

    Tailgating:
    NORTH: Raw meat on a grill, beer with lime in it, listening to local radio station with truck tailgate down.
    SOUTH: 30-foot custom pig-shaped smoker fires up at dawn. Cooking accompanied by live performance by The Dave Matthews’ Band, who come over during breaks and ask for a hit off bottle of bourbon.

    Getting to the Stadium:
    NORTH: You ask “Where’s the stadium?” When you find it, you walk right in.
    SOUTH: When you’re near it, you’ll hear it. On game day, it becomes the state’s third largest city.

    Concessions:
    NORTH: Drinks served in a paper cup, filled to the top with soda.
    SOUTH: Drinks served in a plastic cup, with the home team’s mascot on it, filled less than half way with soda, to ensure enough room for bourbon.

    When National Anthem is Played:
    NORTH: Stands are less than half full, and less than half of the fans stand up.
    SOUTH: 100,000 fans, all standing, sing along in perfect four-part harmony.

    The Smell in the Air After the First Score:
    NORTH: Nothing changes.
    SOUTH: Fireworks, with a touch of bourbon.

    Commentary (Male):
    NORTH: “Nice play.”
    SOUTH: “Dammit, you slow sumbitch! Tackle him and break his legs!”

    Commentary (Female):
    NORTH: “My, this certainly is a violent sport.”
    SOUTH: “Dammit, you slow son of a bitch! Tackle him and break his legs!”

    Announcers:
    NORTH: Neutral and paid.
    SOUTH: Announcer harmonizes with the crowd in the fight song, with a tear in his eye because he is so proud of his team.

    After the Game:
    NORTH: The stadium is empty way before the game ends.
    SOUTH: Another rack of ribs goes on the smoker, while somebody goes to the nearest package store for more bourbon, and planning begins for next week’s game.

    After further review, I can't find an inaccuracy in any of the 19 examples. Which one is not true?

      This one:

      Game Day:
      NORTH: A few students party in the dorm and watch ESPN on TV.
      SOUTH: Every student wakes up, has a beer for breakfast, and rushes over to where ESPN is broadcasting “Game Day Live” to try to get on camera and wave to the idiots up north, who wonder why “Game Day Live” is never broadcast from their campus.

      ESPN's GDL scored its highest rating for its first ten years in 2002 when they broadcast from Franklin Field before the Penn-Harvard game for the Ivy championship (in ugly weather!) (The Ivy office will correct me if I'm wrong on this.)

        The author has obviously never been to Camp Randall or, for that matter any Big Ten stadium.

          Bear Bryant mention reminds me of the Patterson Hood's Drive By Truckers' song about the three great Southern icons - Bear Bryant, George Wallace, and Ronny Van Zant.
