Need-to-Know Wednesday: What Your Favorite NCAA Team Says About You

Hello, friends. I hope you’re well. I like your shirt; what does it say? Ah, that catch phrase will never get old. Larry the Cable Guy certainly is a hoot. “Git-R-Done” indeed. Where can I get a shirt just like that? What a special one that fellow is. The great creative minds truly persevere, don’t they? I enjoy these moments we spend together. I really do.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve come to learn that you can truly tell a lot about a person by the sports teams they follow. You may call it profiling; I call it “inference.” After all, I garnered a great deal about your love for good comedy just now by observing that t-shirt you are wearing. It’s like that with sports teams as well — often we can really get a bead on what a person’s really like by seeing where his or her sporting allegiances lie. In fact, I’ve been thinking about this so much lately that I thought I’d toss it out there for discussion today in a piece we’ll call, for lack of a better title, What Your Favorite NCAA Team Says About You. Perhaps we can all take a step back and see what can be learned just by the powers of observation. Join me, won’t you? I hope you will.

Tennessee: I have a hand-built shed full of skinned deer carcasses and a truck which will not get me out of this county.

Arkansas: I spend a lot of time reminding people of the early nineties.

Kentucky: I wear a lot of denim.

University of Miami: I’m willing to overlook the shortcomings of others if it’s for the greater good.
