You know, I was saying the same thing to Katie-Bar-The-Door just the other day ...
actually sounds like the Laotian students at Belmont College back in 1982 while they sat in the lunchroom at the Rebel Cafeteria - Which I'm sure now is the Bruin Cafeteria since Belmont became a Univerity and changed its nickname from Rebels to Bruins. Nothing says Nashville quite like a Bruin as they're known to wander freely along Granny White Pike and Franklin Road and are frequently spotted at the TCBY in Green Hills Mall. Seems that Belmont decided to make the leap from NAIA to NCAA Division 1 - which seemed like a leap of insanity given their gym was a step below a dung heap in the Bowery. So in order to generate new revenues from their athletic department, they changed their name and changed the sports affiliation. In retrospect it was a stroke of brilliance as they now make the NCAA basketball tournament regularly and its evident from the first 10 seconds you step on campus that they've got more money than P-Diddy.I'm sorry - what was the topic again? Oh yeah, talking cats. Gotta love talking cats.
This is a beautiful place that rewards the observant.In posting, I was hellbent on discussing the need of some schools to escape their nature (some might say "advantage") and become something gaudier.Leave it to a younger, vastly-underpaid brother -- now sorrounded by Mainliners -- to know that was what I was going for.In discussing Laotians ("Laptians" to an iPhone ), we digress to a recuuring topic : I can't get a boner for the Asian woman . . . .What was the topic again ?
