Death to Horse Pigs: Comparison with this weekend's opponent, Reveille

The Texas A&M Aggies come to town Saturday. And along with them come the Yell Leaders , the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band, the Senior Cadets and those knee high boots, the Gig 'Em hand sign... and their mascot Reveille.

I got to hand it the Aggies. As far as I know they don't have anybody dressed up in some sissified suit parading around doing backflips. They have a real live dog as there mascot.. a collie named Reveille.

The Aggies treat Reveille like a queen. Quoting the A&M website: "Reveille is the most revered dog on campus. Company E-2 has the privilege of taking care of Reveille. If she is sleeping on a cadet's bed, that cadet must sleep on the floor. Cadets address Reveille as "Miss Rev, ma'am." If she is in class and barks while the professor is teaching, the class is to be immediately dismissed."

They also bury all of the deceased Reveille's outside of Kyle field and have erected scoreboards next to the dog's graves.. so the dead dogs can keep track of the game. Right.

I got an idea.. How about building a grave for the suits that the Horse Pigs wear?
