Sitting around the center of the universe (Georgetown, TX) on Saturday and thought that it might be time to issue a Farewell to Arms and other body parts as the fans of WSU prepare for the arrival of their new Coach and Captain Mike Leach.
In reading the postings over the past few days coming from Cougcenter it seems to me that the Captain may have found the only port in which to dock that has the same insanely loyal, independent minded, scurrilous scallywags for fans as are present in the South Plains of Texas. I say this with true affection, as I spent my collegiate years surrounded by the wisdom of the flat lands and the most wonderful, unassuming, friendly people in the state (except for the flat this may sound familiar). These are people who do a thing because it is the right thing to do not because it is the easiest or expected thing to do. This simple precept has caused our rift with the current administration of our University, and given your ability to enjoy the fruits of plunder of your Captain/ Coach Mike Leach.
It seems that your Coach Wulff was able to bring your program to an even keel from its previous troubles and this is huge. When Coach came to Tech the first order of business was to right the ship and he was still able to go to a bowl that year and every year since. I see great things in the future for WSU and its’ wonderful fan base.
My hope for you all is that you keep this same crazy wonderful spirit through the ups and downs that are to come. Do not be dissuaded by the “purists” who will insist that the best way is the old way with the first bump in the road.
To Coach Leach I wish only the best for you and your family, may God watch over your move and life! Thank you for the years that you gave us, we wish that there could have been more.
Go Cougars! Go Tech! Screw the politicians, bureaucrats, and the bat shit crazy, rich ass, douche nozzle, meddling Alumni (sorry to those of you I’ve offended).
On a totally divergent sidebar, my world is wine distribution. As of the middle of this past week the vineyards of Washington State are looking much more inviting. See you in September/ October!
