OK, I’ve been really hesitant to go to this place, because Andy Demetra seems like a nice enough guy, and there’s no doubt he loves what he’s doing. The Gamecock Nation seems to be really neutral towards him. I honestly never see anything written about him anywhere, good or bad.
But following him on Twitter is a maddening exercise in positivity overload, and it came to a crescendo last night with this:
The fact that this was retweeted 14 times and favorited twice notwithstanding, WHAT THE HELL?!?
I love Scott Wingo, he’s one of the great Gamecocks of all time, and I’m a diehard Gamecock fan as evidenced by the fact that I write for free about it on an independent blog (looooooserrrrrr).
BUT MR. WINGO WOULD NOT BE SHOWING MR. MANNING INTO ANYTHING. MR. WINGO WOULD BE PARKING MR. MANNING’S CAR BECAUSE MR. WINGO HAD NOT PLAYED A SINGLE GAME AT SOUTH CAROLINA WHEN MR. MANNING WAS WINNING HIS FIRST SUPER BOWL!!!
I know, I know, it’s harmless. Because of his employment situation, Andy is a Gamecock superhomer and into pandering. I have accepted that. But sometimes the fact that Mike Morgan is no longer our play-by-play guy hits me and I get a little flustered.
I’ve calmed down…wait, he tweeted WHAT?!?
