A conversation with one of my coworkers who was born and raised in Texas. He went to UT. He is very....Texan.
"Is there like some crazy rule that states that in order to play as quarterback at A&M or UT you have to have a weird name?"
"Well, like Chance, or Colt."
"or like Vince?"
"No, Vince is normal. And then A&M had a quarterback named Major."
"Major Applewhite played for UT."
"oh. Well whatever, I amend my previous statement to 'if you want your son to grow up and play quarterback for UT, you have to give them an odd name.'"
"You're still mad about the fact I said Major Applewhite played for A&M, aren't you?"
"Yes, yes I am."
