“We” is not “we” if it’s “they.”


A friend was talking with me about UC’s mauling of ND and kept saying “we” did this and “we”’did that and “we, we, we. . . “ After a few minutes of it all, I asked him if he were a student or graduate of UC and he wasn’t. I then reminded him that HE needed to refer to UC as “they.” “We” is earned in my book (student or graduate) and he had not “earned” it. A fan? Fine. A lover of the team and a contributor to the athletic fund? Fine. Both excellent examples of a great “they” fan. He looked puzzled, but he stopped all The UC talk. 😉
