It's Mean Green Night At The Ball Park In Arlington

Recommended Posts

A large Mean Green nation is already in force inside the stadium. Great turnout so far.

It seems as if EVERYONE has suddenly got excited about something....I wonder why?

Anyhow...I got my big freakin' Mean Green truckers hat they gave out and I'm ready to kick smu's ass.

....and go Rangers...beat the Pirates.

A nasty slider, low and on the outside edge?

Low and outiside would be a good description. 

Decent chance it makes Sports Center tonight.  got to give it to him though, he did not try to lob it in there.

We'll give him the benefit of the doubt...he obviously hasn't been practicing off a mound. :)

Desmond and Mazara collide in right field like two 8 year olds, dropping an easy fly ball and hurting themselves.

Pirates 7 Rangers 0

Its like watching the Portland St game all over again.

It's not that people are excited, it's that our alumni don't care about our athletic programs right now. But keep squeezing it to fit your narrative, Rick.

Yeah, FFR...and I bet those people that showed up tonight for Mean Green Night at the Ballpark are all from the evil suburbs, too...

It's really awesome if you wear an 8 1/2?

Wished the Rangers had showed up.  But it was an amazing turnout by our students and alumni.  Spoke to a lot of folks sitting around us who were looking forward to seeing who Dr. Smatresk hires to take over the department.

It pays to know people (UNT alums) in high places.

Not a hat I plan to wear (bc what life scenario calls for a grown man to wear a two team hat?), but a good add to the memorabilia collection. I think our expectations for FSSW and China's give away cap may have been different.

That's good cause that hat wouldn't even fit Donald Trumps head.

I was there with my pretty wife and a Kiwanis/NT alum and my son and his wife.  I thought the cap was nice.  Lots of fans sitting around us asked whee we got such a nice cap.  The people sitting behind us seemed to be closet Mean Green fans.  They seem to keep us with the program but haven't yet been in Apogee.  Hmmm...That sounds too familiar.

Two questions:

1.  Can we bring back the old Scrappy?

2.  GreenJoe, did you invite them out to Apogee?

...or in the very least put something on Eugene Levy Scrappy that identifies him with the University of North Texas?

Its been 3 years now since ELS's debut.  Surely there's a jersey or a bumper sticker, anything we can label him with?

The university doesn't want him dressed. It wasn't an athletics decision, neither was the current design of "Eugene Levy" Scrappy.

Who's responsible for these decisions?  "The university" is rather vague.
