Thatz Not Okay: Syracuse fans wearing Georgetown gear

Stealing from Gawker here so I can make the most obvious point ever. Though one among us (or I guess formerly among us) clearly doesn't get it.

My roommate from college at SU decided a few years ago that he was going to Georgetown for business school. While I was not thrilled by his choice of graduate school for obvious reasons, I told myself he would be OK. He was a huge SU fan who despised Georgetown. I went to Loyola Maryland for grad school and I went to one game ever - against Georgetown, and I wore a Loyola shirt and SU hat just to be a dick. So this wasn't a big deal.

Early on I should have seen the warning signs. He hung up a Georgetown pennant in his apartment next to a Syracuse pennant. This was worrisome. Then I found out he owned a pear of Georgetown shorts, which he wore to the gym there. I never saw them though, so it was hard to get worked up, but again worrisome.

Then this ...

Posted on his Facebook page this morning were photos of him wearing a "We are Georgetown" shirt, while sitting in the student section at the Hoyas game last night. I was going to post them here, but another friend talked me down from that for fear that he may murder me in a rage. But rest assured I have saved them and will keep them as collateral if he ever does this again.

When approached by text and email today, the once Syracuse fan responded with a variety of "defenses" including:

  1. A bunch of my friends are going to the game ... what am I supposed to do?
  2. I can't name two people on that team. I was just hanging out with friends.
  3. We don't even play each other anymore. The rivalry is done. They will schedule non conference but all that matters now is Duke and other ACC teams
What do you all think?
