As a former Austin Peay ball boy*, I have a soft spot in my heart for the Governors. Will I feel bad when the Cats win by 30+ tomorrow? Hell no. But, I might crack a smile if enough Gov fans show up from Clarksville to get the “Let’s Go Peay!” chant going. It’s childish bathroom humor, like laughing at a fart in church, but, you can’t help but find amusement in hearing thousands of fans rooting on their team by shouting out their urge to urinate. I doubt we hear the chants at Rupp tomorrow when the Cats are gettin’ s— right and pooping ice cream all over the Peay, but the Govs’ urinary incontinence can’t be ignored.
* That’s not a Patrick Barker joke. I actually was a ball boy for Austin Peay during the 1993 season. Don’t hate. I was just a young chap with a sweat towel and a dream, trying to get a head start on the college girls.
