The Oranging


Science will come up with some reason to put in the books, but in the end it'll be just a theory. I mean, we will fail to acknowledge that there are forces at work beyond our understanding. To be a Syracuse basketball fan, you must have a respectful awe for the laws of nature.

Listen to Mark Wahlberg, you guys.  He's right.  There are forces at work and they're telling you to wear an orange T-shirt on February 14th whilst attending the Syracuse-Georgetown basketball game in the Carrier Dome.  It's time for an "Orange-out," as the kids are calling it these days, and you need to do your part.  It's easy, really.

If you're a student, you already own an Orange shirt.  If by chance you don't, you are hereby dis-studented from Syracuse.  Sorry.  You just lost the deposit on that dorm fridge. 

Everyone else, if you don't own an Orange shirt, you have one month to accrue the funds necessary to purchase an Orange shirt from a place of business that specializes in apparel sales, preferably one in the Greater Syracuse area with a collection of Syracuse University-themed paraphernalia geared towards the local demographic which is in fact you.

If you attend the game on February 14th and consider yourself a Syracuse fan and you DO NOT show up in Orange, your Syracuse fandom is hereby revoked and you will be placed in front of the SU Judicial Board who will sentance you to the appropriate in fail jail.

Look, I'll make it really simple for you.  This is an example of what you should NOT do on February 14th:


This is an example of the BARE MINIMUM that you should do on February 14th:


And finally this is IDEALLY what you'll be wearing and doing on February 14th:
