In the U.S. South two things say a lot about a person – Religion and Sports!
When we were planning our move south, we connected with a born and raised southern lady. Her first two instructions to us were:
- Choose your church
- Choose your sports team
For a church, there seems to be one choice – Baptist. As my daddy use to say, “You can’t throw a dead cat without hitting a [church].” (My apologies to all cat lovers.)
For a sports team, it is South Carolina so you have two choices.
USC Gamecocks or Clemson Tigers
While they are both formidable orange beasts, our allegiance cannot be cast aside so easily. We have been and will continue to be loyal fans of our Tiger, a rotund orange man – The Syracuse University Orange!
