Start Them Young and Raise Them Right

As you all know Mr. ESPN and I graduated from U of A.  Our arch rivals are the Sun Devils.  We LOVE U of A and can't say anything nice about ASU (so I won't say anything at all).  My girls affectionately refer to U of A as GO CATS.

Chatty: "Mommy our cabin is the Sun Devils today and I have to wear Sun Devil colors"
Me: "I don't think so - you will be wearing your Arizona Wildcats t-shirt because we don't like the Sun Devils"
Chatty: "But Mom we have to (starting to get teary eyed), Cabin A is the Sun Devils"
Me: "Nope we are Go Cats here and we don't wear Sun Devil colors.  I will tell the Leader that you can't wear it because we are Go Cats and that your mom and dad will not allow it"
Chatty: "OK Mom"
Bia: "I wear my Go Cats shirt too"

Note - Cabin E were the CATS so I told Chatty she could be an honorary member of their cabin today!

Too funny!!! The girls refer to our rivals as "Boo KU". Not KU, Jayhawks, etc. Just Boo KU.

That is funny! My roommate at A&M was raised by two longhorns and has pictures and videos in burnt orange and white sining their songs. Lesson I learned, brainwashing can back fire.
