So Butler is playing Virginia Commonwealth University this Friday… The problem? Both my parents attended VCU. I live in Richmond. Let’s say my family’s a little conflicted right now. I, however, have no qualms whatsoever about cheering only, solely, and wholeheartedly for the bulldogs.
Example of Butler school spirit, advising appointment, 9 am:
Me: I can take a summer class to finish off my English major.
Advisor: Where are you taking it?
Me: VCU has a three week session between the end of BSI and the beginning of Butler’s fall semester. [Note: Actually, this fell through, but I should be doing other interesting things to finish off my major instead.]
Advisor: Oh, you really want to take classes there? VCU? We’re playing them.
Me (thinking to self): I wonder if the credits would transfer if we lost…. I wonder if VCU will accept me after we win.
Oh, conflict. But me, I’m bulldogs all the way! GO BU!
