I am not a Traitor

I just came out of an Arts and Sciences College meeting. You know, the typical stuff: the less important the subject is, the more discussion. I am usually loud and outspoken at these things, and everyone humors me. But I did something really imprudent. Under my breath--during an especially boring part of the meeting--I made a favorable reference to Michigan in the upcoming game. I was joking, of course, being the patriot that I am, yet, even I sensed that it was no laughing matter when a female faculty member (a perfectly nice and intelligent woman) scowled at me, pulled aside her overcoat to reveal a scarlet sweater over a grey turtleneck. She frowned and said "That is not funny. I am going to report you." I reassured her that I was only kidding. She said that was good, because she wasn’t. I think I’ll just stay at home until the game Saturday (12:15 our time).
