ok, so...Texas vs. Nebraska

Posted By Whitney Fletcher, asba, Friday, October 15, 2010

As some of you might know college football is the greatest time of the year! The games, the crowds of people (young and old), the traditions, the joy of win (or the agony of defeat), and the rivalries. Well the rivalries are going strong here at the asba offices. Although I hail from Northern California, I was a raised a Texas Longhorns fan and although Steve Holgerson (Member Benefits Director) hails from Arizona, he is a diehard Nebraska fan. For those that are unaware, Nebraska and Texas hate each other. Yes, I’m going to whip out the word hate because no other word can describe the level of disdain these two teams have for each other.

For months now Steve and I have gone back and forth with pranks…he changes my computer desktop background to a Nebraska image, I cover his office in Longhorn cutouts…the usual. Well, with the big game between the two coming up on Saturday Mr. Holgerson has taken it to another level. I came into the office today to find an inflatable Nebraska fan in front of my office. Here are my problems with it:

1. It was HUGE, I mean 10 feet tall huge

2. It was before 9am and the image of it burned my retinas (everyone knows I can’t handle loud, bright or obnoxious things before 9am)

3. It was accompanied by the Nebraska fight song blaring from Steve’s office, which just so happens to face mine.

4. And worst of all he did it on the 15th aka the day after my birthday…clearly Steve isn’t aware of girl law but birthdays are not just a day, they are at least a week long celebration and you aren’t allowed to be mean or offensive to me during my birthday week (violation of birthday girl rule #7)

In closing I would like to say that yes, I realize my team is no longer even ranked in the top 25 and yes, I realize that Nebraska is ranked 4th or 5th (depending on the poll) but you Mr. Holgerson better pray that your team wins because if they don’t I’m coming for you and it’s not going to be pretty :)
