Fun news: Tech is angsty over loss to Wyoming, comparing it to losing to us in 1997

Recommended Posts

Lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth over in Raiderland over their OT loss to Wyoming. But the funny part is how they compare it to their horrific, devasting, life-changing loss to 

us in 1997. [I thought our win in Lubbock in 1988 was epic also. I saw them both in person!] 

It's somehow satisfying to see them still harboring bitterness over those games.  I'm posting a link, if it's okay, to a FB page

of a Lubbock sports reporter who compares the losses to Wyoming and to us and how dreadful & upsetting they are.

It's a new word formed by the contraction of the words 'angry' and 'thirsty'. I makes sense to those who have spent too much time in Lubbock...like 30 minutes.

Full of angst? Full of anger and anxiety?  Lots of hand-wringing at any rate. Way too much wind bringing the aroma of the feed lots to the people forced to live there (like myself for a few years). The South Plains is a whole other world and sometimes it needs new vocabulary to tap into all that goes on there.   Let's just say they are not happy they lost to Wyoming and they are being quite dramatic about it.
