Politically Correct People?

People at a football game. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"There are only two kinds of people who are really fascinating; people who know absolutely everything, and people who know absolutely nothing." ~ Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), The Picture of Dorian Gray, ch. 7 (1891)
I think there are several people here who know absolutely everything there is to know about football and a few who know absolutely nothing, and frankly don't care. The girl under the umbrella qualifies as one in the latter category; those standing and cheering fall into the first. The guy with the cell phone to his ear is a mystery. He may be trying to find someone lost in the masses, or he could be giving an absent football fanatic a play by play description. They may not know much or care much about football, but they have school spirit! Can anyone guess the school colors?

Aside: The team name is "The Tribe." The mascot is a bear with a crown, maybe reference to King William. (It used to be a green blob of some sort but changed this year.) In a couple of the W & M logos there appear two "feathers"; no tommy hawk, no Indian headdress, no one pictured in Native American dress, JUST TWO FEATHERS. Now, the word has come down. Absurdity reigns. William & Mary will have to remove the TWO FEATHERS from their logo because it is OFFENSIVE to Native Americans. Unbelievable! They could be just plain old turkey feathers! We better see some changes in the Atlanta Braves and the Florida State Seminoles as well!!!!
