P-F21: Week 6 NCAA Bonus - Positivity Leaders
Many times you can’t control what happens to you, but you can always control your reaction to what’s happening. Everybody, even Alabama fans, deals with setbacks. How do wrap your head around a place like College Station? The answer is a positive attitude.
I struggle with depression nearly every year in mid-October, but I’ve learned to look at the better side of these events. Someone on the internet may say a positive attitude will cure disease. If it can do that, then it can no doubt lead to better picks.
This was your goal this week, and we practiced on the universally loved but historically disappointed Longhorns and Sooners. Are the Longhorns hurting inside? Secretly. The Sooners? If money can’t buy you love, then do you think wins can?
It is hate week for Sooners and Longhorns. Since all the fans will be filled with hate, say something nice to one or both of the fan bases.
A Northmen (AN) – “Thank you for putting the horns down, it means you hate us more than you love yourself. What an amazing compliment. Have a nice day hater. :-)” Alright alright alright. That’s positive. +4
Astros! (AP) – “On the bright side, one of you will win today!” While not negative, this is minimal positivity effort here. +1
Cornholio's Bunghole (BO) – “I've never been so happy to be from AZ.” It’s always sunny in Arizona? +2
18 National Championships (CG) – “We welcome you to the SEC and look forward to both sending A&M further into the dark ages of football.” If I know Texas, the Longhorns will slide into the SEC on the DL. You may not even notice. +3
Middle-aged Hot (CK) – “Longhorns: You are smarter and prettier. Sooners: Norman is better than College Station.” My favorite totally unbiased answer. +5
Swamp Dogs (DR) – “Bevo seems like a nice fellow.” He’s been working hard at media training. +3
Bevo XV (DW) – “Your commitment to hate is impeccable.” Ok, a compliment. +3
Left Hand Scissors (GN) – “No matter what they are dealing with all year living in Oklahoma, they still get excited about coming to Texas each year. I can't same the same for Texas fans. Baker Mayfield is also the man.” +3
Bourbon Barristers (KH) – “I ❤️ Lincoln Riley.” I do too. I hope he gets promoted. +3
Huntwick Hosers (KW) – “Bless your hearts.” #blessed +3
Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK) – “The property felons’ offense does a great job of getting away with holding every play.” They absolutely do. And good for them. +4
Struggling to be positive
Beelzebubbles (CC) – “nope.” That’s not positive. +1
T-Horns (AM) – “Can't spell Douche without OU.” While true, I think I see what you did there. +2
Buddy the Chimp (BC) – “Please don't fling poop at each other.” Buddy, flinging poop is a bad habit. +2
Riggsmtb713 (CR) – “Gig Em Aggies.” Gigging is something that isn’t positive for frogs and wasn’t something positive for ‘bama this past weekend. +1
Shake and Baker (JN) – “Beef is my favorite food.” More tasty than tiny horse. +3
That’s not nice
[ON]/OFF (RH) – “OK...OK...I'll stop saying Choklahoma!” I do wish you said it more in October, but that’s not either of us being positive. +2
Accidentchild (MN) – “Texas - Hook'em! OU - Go f*ck yourselves!” I get it, but I don’t think you understood the exercise. +2
Variants are for beer (KS) – “Fuck both of y’all but at least you will be in actual conference soon.” SEC is positive that they are the best conference. +2
