Talking Smack


I'm usually not much of a smack-talker (I can hear the yeah-rights coming from every corner), but today I came across a humorous blog post that all of you BYU fans will probably enjoy. I actually thought that the post was quite clever and everything that I planned on posting here on my blog, I ended up posting in the comments. Without further ado, I present Welcome To My Soapbox's take on Talking Smack (Be sure and read my rebuttal comment, that's where the good information is found...). I love commenting on random blogs. When I grow up I want to be creepy.

At least we know where Ada's heart lies:

How did you find this rant? It is one of bros friends. She writes the most generalized rants of anyone I have ever read. Your response was awesome...trust me BYU fans hate the U. We live in married student housing here and 99% of the LDS students went to the Y. Everywhere I go I hear about how awful the U is and how great TDS is. My dad, who went to the U, says it is an inferiority complex and I agree.

Sam said...

And on a side note, someone called my dad the other from BYU asking him to donate money. He paused and said, "There is NO WAY in a MILLION YEARS that I would every give a dime to BYU." I completely agree.

Sam - I had forgotten how I stumbled upon her blog, but I think that it was through your Saving Health Care blog somehow. I loved her post and felt it very worthy for inclusion on Lurp's Lounge.

Go Utes :)!

Though this is a football smack forum, I do have to tout my Cougar basketball team. Taking out number 6 in the country without playing their best ball.

Anyway, it will be a great game today. May the best team win (so long as it's BYU).

GO COUGS!

Just for the record, my family aren't exactly "fanatical" fans. My dad, brother, and I are really the only ones who care, but we are huge fans, win or lose. Your family, on the other hand, wears mostly red year round, puts up flags, gets season tickets... who are the fanatics? At least my parents don't try to brainwash their granddaughter (did you have something to do with the Utah shirt?). Way to be sneaky-- "Oh, I'll put Ada to bed tonight!"

Also, enough of the generalizations. "All BYU fans blah blah blah." "All Utah fans blah blah blah." Most of my friends are Utah fans, and most of yours are BYU fans! You can't put all fans in one category. I agree that there are plenty of idiots on both sides.

I probably should not inject myself into a rivalry that I care so little about, but I just have one comment. All tithe-paying Church members are already donating to BYU. That's all.

tysqui said...

And that's exactly why we quit paying...

Angie said...

One more thing: since when is my spouse not part of the family?

Alison Squire said...

I failed to mention that my brothers-in-law and sister-in-law are all big Cougar fans too. Also, all apologies on the rant. I really do love my husband!

Salt H2O said...

I'm flattered by this post. Thank you. Looks like now I have seven readers :)

Salty H2O and Sam mentioned that the other school’s fans had an inferiority complex. It made me laugh. I love how all Utah fans are drunks and/or are just bitter because they were not accepted to BYU and how all BYU fans are self-righteous hypocrites.

What would a rivalry be without trash talk and smack talk? What if no one gloated about the victory or took cheap shots at your team? BORING!

Trash talk and smack talk help fuel the fire of a rivalry. We are ignorant to idiotic comment from one of our own, but we drink up the outrageous, inflammatory comments from the other side.

Personally, I don’t like to talk trash or smack because I don’t like to eat crow, but I have to admit that it sure makes a rivalry more entertaining!

This is currently my FAVORITE Comments Page! Alison's response regarding putting Ada to bed, is priceless. Tyler's response regarding Tithe, had me laughing for a good five minutes! Keep it up!
