Sometimes, humanity continues to surprise me. And, not in a bad way. In a good way.
So, I went to Camp Randall Stadium today to watch the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Oregon State Beavers. Wow. It was a shut-out, Wisconsin winning 35-0. Wisconsin's QB Russell Wilson continued to be a great addition to the team, and both the defense and the offense started up heavy.
One of the many reasons I'm not a rabid sports fan other than College Football is how fans have a tendency to go too far. One of those things is ridiculing other teams' fans. I may not like Wisconsin's many rivals, but I can successfully say that I only hate one of them: Ohio State. Nothing against that institution itself, it's among the most respected public universities in the country, but their fans and their teams always come off as dicks. So, anyway, sports fans can get pretty hateful. Usually, when another team is announced, they get booed. Today, I witnessed nothing but civility towards Oregon State fans by Wisconsin fans and vice versa. It was a nice change of pace.
