Go Rebels!

Don’t you just love checking out the new stores you see when you go on vacation??

Over Christmas, I visited family along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and, while far too many things are gone, some interesting shopping experiences remain (yeah, that song was before Katrina, but it’s sadly true today).

One of my more successful shopping experiences took place at Academy Sports. While they have NO stores outside the South (and parts of the Southwest), and their Website lacks online shopping capability, they have the most amazing selection of sports and fitness wear, as well as NCAA and pro fan gear.

I went in looking for a nylon warm-up suit (I found dozens!). What I came out with, though, was this:

Col. Reb will ALWAYS be my mascot!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cool, huh?!

Best of all, they had ONE of these T-shirts left. And it just happened to be in my size!

Woo-Hoo, Happy Dance!

It’s like they knew I was coming or something and saved it just for me!

Now that my alma mater has supposedly switched to a black bear as its mascot, these Col Reb shirts are scarcer than hens’ teeth!

But I got one. And, Rebel that I am, I’m gonna wear it with pride!

Shoot, I wish I could dream up an excuse to go to Oxford and flaunt it in the administration’s face.

I’d love to see their expression!

  1. Sorry, Robert, but that one won’t fly! Combining the black bear with the Colonel, trying to “compromise,” isn’t something I’m willing to do. All those sports teams with Native American mascots (Seminoles, Braves, etc.) don’t; why should we? True Rebel fans take offense at forcing a Louisiana black bear down our throats. I understand “progress,” but NOT at the expense of Tradition! Thanks for visiting and weighing in, though!
