    In the mid 80s, the university I attended had a regularly losing football team. I mean bad.

    (To be fair, they required their athletes to graduate in 4 years, unlike many of the collegial schools who allow athletes to take 5 years to finish their coursework. But I digress.)

    One of the cheers I remember hearing, from our sparsely populated stands, was "That's all right, that's okay, you're gonna work for us someday."

    I was dumbfounded the first time I heard that. I came from a blue-collar household. I had limited exposure to people from the next atmosphere up, in terms of income, so I hadn't seen much of the assumed privilege mentality and arrogance... yet.

    Never could find it in myself to utter that cheer.
