Day two was going to be LSU. I had previous Disney experience with LSU and was sure the Tigers fans would show up strong. The early polls had the Bears as Tiger Bait…
Day One – Three people commented to me about my Baylor shirt. One Cast Member said – hey Baylor people – you’re next. Once lady asked me, “where’s Baylor?” And one guy shouted “Sic ‘em” as he walked past me. Day Two – LSU was shut out. Nothing. Not one person said anything. I feel the need to post a pic of myself so you can see that this was no small “LSU” on my shirt. I was representing.
I began to reason about the shutout. Making up things in my head like – maybe all Tiger fans go to Orlando – its closer. Yeah – that makes sense. Or – perhaps they are still working or in school. But knowing all of the out of work Tiger fans that I personally know – I simple knew that these were just excuses that I was making to feel better about the situation. So I went cultural the next day and threw on a LOST t-shirt. I had two head nods as I entered the park. One person stopped me and said that was their favorite show. Another person said – “Oh… LOST,” but since it was my Mother in law I’m not sure I can count that one.
Not happy with those results, I decided to go Aeropostale on the people of Disney on my last day. I even threw on a gray long sleeve underneath in an effort to look hip.
I’m not sure what all of this means, but I figured it would be most beneficial info to all of you in blog land.
