I’m not one to oft admit jealousy of anything. Except say, someone who has a smoking hot girlfriend, someone who has a lot of money, good looks, fame, a smoking hot wife, athletic ability of any kind, intelligence, a smoking hot mistress, employment, musical talent, humor, a nicer computer than me, a nice car, a car, a smoking hot wife AND a smoking hot girlfriend…
But I will admit that I am jealous of one thing in particular. Other teams who have cool battle cries if you will, whenever they kick off a ball. You hear it all the time. Most fans in the SEC, when gearing up for a kickoff, will start with their “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH” chant, but as the time comes to actually kick the ball, other fans have things that they chant in unison. Like Georgia has their (something incomprehensible) followed by a Woof Woof Woof, Bama has their… something, it’s hard to understand what they’re saying without my English to Alabama dictionary.
I propose here, that Tennessee fans should not be left out of one more instance of fun chanting something in unison together with thousands of other fans like brainwashed sheep cool people. Ready?
The team lines up. The shakers circling overhead. The anticipation grows. The kicker raises his arm, then starts trotting towards the upright ball. The crowd gets a little louder “ooooOOOOO” and the ball is KICKED!
V-O-L-S, Go Vols Go!
Let’s make it happen people. If you go to the game, do it on the first kickoff, and if you do it with gusto, and not like the pansy that you normally are at the office all week when people take a bigger portion of cake so that you’re left with only crumbs, or a shitty middle piece with no side icing, several people are bound to notice, and do it with you the second time. If more than one person can do it at the same time from different sections, by the time the 3rd home game rolls around, I should be able to audibly hear the chant on TV.
And it’ll all be thanks to me. The awesomest loneliest blogger in the universe. Please?
Feel free to repost this on other blogs, take credit yourself (although we all know it’s Fulmer’s Belly that got it started), but let’s see if the world of the internet is really that strong, and can create a real change, and a new tradition for all of us to be proud of when 30 years down the road, everyone is doing it. You can say you were one of the first to start it! Sweet!.
