The Great Rivalry

Today I was pushing some kids on the tire swing when one of the kids began to chant, “Cou-gars! Cou-gars! Cou-gars!”

The two other kids on the swing looked a little uncomfortable, then chanted in reply, “Utah Utes!  Utah Utes!  Utah Utes!”

The little BYU fan very cordially joined in on their Utah chanting, thinking they were going to take turns chanting for both teams.  When they were through, the BYU boy said, “Ok, now Cougars.  Cougars!  Cougars!  Cougars!”

The little Ute fans didn’t join in.  Instead, they glanced at each other and loudly began chanting over the BYU chant, “Utah Utes!  Utah Utes!  Utah Utes!”

Once the chants had died down I chimed in, “But what about the Aggies?”

They all gave me a quizzical look and pretended not to hear me.

Such is the life of an Aggie.
