Foto Friday – High Four


If you are a Gamecock fan this photo is just funny. Unless you have a stick up your butt.

I was surprised to see the reaction of some Gamecock fans to this photo, calling it rude and disrespectful. As a father of two kids, without the photo’s proper context I can see that. Mocking an adult the way these kids are is a little disrespectful, no doubt. 

Until you consider who the “adult” is. He’s the guy who did this:

We’ve been on the wrong side of this rivalry in football for way too long. And for too long we’ve had to deal with unimaginative name calling and scoreboard pointing. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and I’m not opposed to stepping on few orange tinged fingers along the way.

Now, I’m not condoning vandalism by any stretch of the imagination. But I’ve never been opposed to a little low brow humor or clever trash talk.

Or kids, unbeknownst to Dabo, throwing up the four-peat sign during a photo-op. That’s just genius.

High four kids, nice work.
