How to Confuse the 'Cocks...

(...Gamecocks, that is.)

Well if you're not from one of the Carolinas you probably don't know that University of South Carolina fans (the 'Cocks) and Clemson fans (Tigers, duh) really don't like each other much. About as much as the Dukies and the Tar-holes do (Duke and University of NC at Chapel Hill, for you yanks.)

I had to help DH work at the UNC-USC football game this past Saturday. I had been at the Clemson men's soccer game the night before and drove straight to the football stadium in Chapel Hill, from my SC trip. I was still wearing my "Clemson Mom" shirt. Mind you, I am not a Clemson alum (I graduated from Duke like any self-respecting obnoxious Marylander who was born in New Jersey should do).

I had the best time walking around in that bright orange shirt. The USC fans seemed especially confused. Why would anyone in her right mind show up at a UNC-USC game wearing a shirt from a different school, especially as one as hated in their parts as Clemson?

'Cause it's fun to mess with semi-drunk football fans from two schools you don't particularly care for, that's why:
(Note to self: stop posing for pictures in which your chin is mushed up into your neck like Jabba the Hutt.)
