A Controversy I Didn’t Expect: Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State

On a recent episode of “Life’s a Tripp,” I caused quite a controversy by wearing a Mississippi State sweat shirt.

Immediately, people started wondering about how I became a fan.  What’s the connection? Why did I like Mississippi State over Ole Miss?

Well, to be completely honest, there’s a simple explanation. People sometimes give us gifts to show their home state pride, their charity work, or even their businesses.  So on that day, I must’ve grabbed one of those “gift shirts.”

Remember when my mom said:

“What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?  Lipstick.”

Maybe someone at Mississippi State thought this analogy applied to bull dogs, too.

Either way, I didn’t mean to step into the – apparently – very competitive waters of the SEC.  Apparently people feel more strongly about this rivalry than Obama/Romney!
