Trust me, I’m as tired of the topic as you are and I’ll try not to post about it again. But I did want to clear some things up from my over-the-top, poorly worded, hangover-addled post yesterday, especially for all of my new friends at PonyFans.com. First of all, I’ve long since known about and learned to embrace my inner dorkiness, but I appreciate everyone over at the PonyFans forum pointing it out. (Until now, I’d never before been called “Dillhole McGill.” So, um, thanks?) And I shoulda thought better of declaring my wife’s hotness in such a public shout-out. I was trying to be sweet and still think she is, but I’ll keep it to myself next time. And, I wasn’t the one with SMU elitist image concerns; that was an emailer. Finally, in a nutshell, my problem with the Pony Up campaign was and is this: On a billboard, a pony with an arrow next to it looks like it’s giving bad directions to the stadium. I should have left it at that.
That said, I hope plenty of SMU fans can find their way to Ford Stadium on Monday before the 3 p.m. kickoff against Texas Tech. What is a “Red Raider” anyway? And what kind of slogan is “Git Yer Guns Up”? (Don’t answer that, Trey.)
Pony Up, if you are so inclined.
