West Virginia’s national image is shaped more by [West Virginia University’s] football program than anything else. One of my long-time traditions is to take an annual vacation in Las Vegas. For years, if I wore a West Virginia hat or other garb, I’d be greeted with “You guys are good” … During a recent trip, the comments were a virtually unanimous: “You guys are no good.”

There’s no retort to that. They’re right.

  1. Mr Punch Says:

    Well, yeah, but it’s sports gear, in Las Vegas. Also, West Virginia.

    I (very) occasionally wear a striped tie in my college’s colors, and no one ever says, “You guys have a great History department.”
