Circling the Bases with Coach Schlossnagle-3/30

Calling all rowdy Frog fans!

I talked to a number of people at football games last year that all had the same idea: a section of Amon G. Carter Stadium set aside for young alumni who still want to be vocal & energetic during games- as opposed to acting like we're in church at games, which unfortunately seems to be the norm for most TCU alums.

For a number of years now, those rowdier fans have retreated back to the student section and provided their energy from the top of Section X. But because nobody out there is getting any younger, there will come a point in every Frog fan's life when they are, sadly, too old to sit in the student section.

So instead of continuing to be the old creepertons at the top of the student section, I propose a section of young whipper-snappers closer the the field (and the opposing team's ears) in Section V.

I realize that sitting in X is an easy escape from the "down in front" complaints that you get from older folks who think it's inappropriate to make as much noise as possible when the opposing team is facing a crucial 3rd Down. But if we get enough like-minded fans who want to turn Amon G. Carter into the feared environment that it ought to be, then the whining will be drowned out by our strength in numbers. Who knows, maybe our enthusiasm will even be contagious enough to actually get other fans to join in the fun.

2010 could be another huge season for Frog football, so if you want to be in a section of other rowdy young alumni and help set the tone for the rest of the stadium, call up the TCU Ticket Office and get your season tickets in the first 20 rows of Section V...and get your vocal chords ready. If you can't get season tickets, just come sit down there- we'll make room for you.

Go Frogs.

Angry White Men

If you liked the movie Gran Torino, then you'll love what's going on over on the Eastern Bloc right now. While they don't allow for anything that might demean women (like we apparently do, according to their owner), it appears they certainly enjoy being the place for some tolerant souls to vent their anger towards our neighbors in the Orient...
