Aw, it's funny 'cause it's true

My roommate Clay and I were discussing the near-downfall of the football program here at Lewis & Clark. I don't see any persuasive reason for keeping football around and would have rather that they had gotten rid of it last semester. Clay argued that some very wealthy alums probably make their financial support of the college contingent on the existence of the football program, the same way that one lady would only leave us her estate if we guaranteed that there would always be a women's-only housing option.

Clay: "Football used to be the big thing here. Fabulously wealthy alums probably were on the football team."
Me: "Aw, why can't fabulously wealthy people have been on the Ultimate Frisbee team, instead?"
Clay: "Because people who play Ultimate Frisbee don't become fabulously wealthy. They move to Eugene and own ferrets."

Touché, Clay. Touché.
