Oh yeah. I forgot to blog about Clemson’s loss last weekend to Boston College. I didn’t see the game. I was on a plane for the entire game. We lost to them again. In double-overtime. Again.
But you wanna know what’s cool about it? Clemson fans travel to the games so well that our presence is always noticed…because of Clemson’s $2 bill tradition.
From the Boston Herald:
Clemson University fans in town last weekend for the football showdown with Boston College flooded local stores, restaurants and hotels with $2 bills stamped with the Clemson Tigers’ tell-tale orange paw prints. […] Patrick Moscaritolo, head of the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau […] estimates Clemson fans pumped more than $1.5 million into Boston’s economy. “Oh my God, they were all over the city,” Moscaritolo said. “Clemson pretty clearly demonstrates their reputation. They are a team that travels well.”
Moral of the story? If you can’t beat’em, show’em you came.
We shoulda beat those jokers.
Up next: FSU on ESPN Sat Nite.
