A ROOSTER AIN'T NUTHIN BUT A CHICKEN!

As a Clemson, SC native and a die-hard tiger fan, I couldn't resist the urge to poke a little fun at my University of South Carolina brethren (their mascot is the Gamecock). I graduated from Clemson in 1993 with a degree in English. I still think of Clemson as my home even though I have lived in Atlanta for over 6 years now. I grew up going to football games at Death Valley--tailgating with family and friends before every game. Even now, I still get a wee bit emotional when I am amongst the pageantry of Clemson Football. In spite of how morally bankrupt and insideously revenue-driven college football has become, I can't help but swell with pride when the tigers run down the hill...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Love his expression. Great illustration this week James. So you're a Clemson fan, are you? Granted they're no Texas A&M, but the Tigers aren't too bad. ;)
