Futility be damned...

I'm pulling for my (undergrad/ski team) alma mater in the collegiate nationals this weekend.

With last year's controversy behind them (which was within both NCWSA and AWSA rules), hopefully they'll out-ski the predictions of the oddsmakers.

war eagle

War Eagle! Or do I mean Go Tigers!?

As I am a product of my environment, I am guilty of double-naming my blog. My title says Waterskiing etc, but my URL says lakerykert

Anyway, here's a link to NCWSA nationals

    BTW, why is it war eagle, if its the tigers? I don't get it.

    Something about an eagle flying around the stadium and a concurrent come-from-behind victory many decades ago. It's a legend that can be neither confirmed nor denied. If I was in charge of making up the legend, I would recount something about aerial turds, opposing quarterbacks, and the visitor's gatorade stash.

    Yeah, I like that. I heard the "war damn eagle" thing for the first time last year and ever since I figured it was just one of those things.

    But, if it is a come from behind victory with an eagle swooping around that is much cooler then the cubs and a freaking goat.
