    Now we have the “scientific” proof – grin

    Aw man …

    Rams are gay, its a scientific fact

    is the Carolina Blue background just coincidence…. hilarious

    I recommend using the same treatment for Tarheel fans that researchers in Oregon are using.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    I thought it was head butts they did?

    Now its official…just like the t-shirt said:

    “Raleigh, North Carolina: We Back the Pack!”

    “Chapel Hill, North Carolina: We Pack the Back!”

    “I wish I knew how to quit you.”

    it’s interesting they actually even used Carolina blue as the background color. . . Could there be a
    State fan lurking in the wings.

    –btw, do not say anything about my name. . . it’s only tongue-in-cheek (or, rather, between cheeks)!

    “But I was surprised to learn recently that male sheep exhibit homosexuality at least as often as humans: roughly 8% of rams turn out to have sex exclusively with other rams.”

    Dude, I’m calling BS on the implication that 8% of male humans are homosexuals!

  13. buttPACKer 02/05/2007 at 4:20 PM #

    actually, i’d say your right. . . it’s far MORE than 8%

  14. buttPACKer 02/05/2007 at 4:21 PM #

    pardon the spelling, i.e. your > you’re

    Now that we know what the scientists are saying occurs in nature, can somebody good with statistics like Vawolf82, do the math to figure out what the percentages are over at the Rams Club. Would it be just double, or would it jump geometrically according to the number of members “involved” there?

    I think there is an intense study going on to prove or disprove the theory.

    “At UNX labs we have amassed hundreds of gerbils to test with. Of course, many have disappeared.” — Dr. Leminwinks said today.

    ^Maybe I should have put the word “members” in quotation marks up there also.

    Dickie V’s weekly awards:

    Team of the week: you guessed it. . . NC State

    Coach of the week: right again, Sidney Lowe:

    ” NC State stunned Virginia Tech and North Carolina and let me tell you, Lowe is going to be a star down in Raleigh. He has a cool demeanor and he will get the job done.”

  19. buttPACKer 02/05/2007 at 5:39 PM # also named NC State “Team of the Week!”

  20. legacyman 02/05/2007 at 6:18 PM #

    Didn’t some question why a change was needed once upon a time…question answered…way to go players, coaches, fans.

    we’re also Weekly Watch’s team of the week. Looks like a unanimous sweep of the weekly awards.

  22. tractor57 02/05/2007 at 6:52 PM #

    so I guess we now have a bandwagon

  23. bTHEredterror 02/05/2007 at 8:47 PM #

    Good to have scientific proof, but the easter blue outfits and penny loafers should have removed any doubt.

    Take a look at the Technician’s parody of the Daily Tar Hell. Hansborough’s “walking lessons” was a topic.

    can somebody good with statistics like Vawolf82, do the math to figure out what the percentages are over at the Rams Club.

    Do you know what comes to the surface if you stir up a septic tank? I wouldn’t touch that calc with your hands. 😉
