RBR Tailgating: Cod with Sage and Prosciutto

BenMSYS January 1, 1970

“Wooooooooo (this should apparently last six seconds), pig. Wooooooooo (tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic), pig. Wooooooooo (tedium), pig. That is the cheer of the University of Arkansas, this week’s opponent. It looks like the fans are encouraging… who. “Come woo me, woo me, for I am in a holiday humour and like enough to consent. ” I’ve read As You Like It. I like pork as much as the next guy. Pork chops, bacon, loin, any manner of cured bits or spicy sausages, the whole hog. The talking heads have and will continue to harp on the rigors of an SEC season and how three games in a row against teams capable and in the running to claim an Atlanta birth might be too much for any team, even our beloved Tide. They have and will talk of the need for depth while wringing their hands, Erik-like, over the lack of experience behind our starting defensive backs. What you will not hear from the talking heads is how all three of our remaining pre-bye opponents have elevated degeneracy of one degree or another to communal catharsis with their bizarre in-stadium antics. Texas A&M’s “Yell Leader” encourage fans with a variety of signals. Once the crowd has recognized the signal and stands ready to respond, the yell leader sets off the action with the command sign known as “Hump It. ” There are apparently a whole caste system of cheers and hand motions.

But the results are well worth it: a strong, beautiful blade -- a knife made with skills two millennia old."You get out here and you see how strong you are," says the muscle bound master...
