    Wearing Buffs colors at the grocery store, some guy says, "Colorado, eh? Not a good week this week." I responded, "yeah, they lost."

    'They.'

    Wow.


    Anybody else having trouble with embarassment, or is your your heart still in it?

    I didn't go to chik-fil-et in my buffs stuff on Monday for a free chicken sandwich.

    I have been wearing my B&G, but mostly because it is such a large portion of my total wardrobe that it is tough to avoid

    That was Peter. You'd only be Judas if you had turned the Buffs over to the Lammies before the game or something like that.... :cool:

    You should have gut punched him, and then asked him how his week was going.

    I wore mine even whilst in sucklahoma. I'll be flying the flag all day tomorrow and wearing my gear after I get home from work. I've been a supporter of this program long enough to remember far worse times than this.

    Let's see how the rest of the season pans out before selling out on our Buffs.

    I have to confess - I wore a 2008 Senior Open shirt (Broadmoor) on the plane to Ohio today. :sorry:

    Plane to Columbus was full of USC and Ohio State fans decked out in full gear. Chants of "OH ... IO" were met with similar chants by the USC fans.

    It's tough to be a CU fan right now - but I'll have my CU gear on all day tomorrow (Jack Nicklaus museum in the morning - Jack is the best golfer ever, don't even start) before heading north to Toledo.

    I hope I get to wear my CU gear proudly Saturday night at the Horseshoe! :thumbsup:

    I wore Buffs gear to work yesterday (definite plus with recent surgery is the ability to wear comfies to work). I'm wearing Buffs stuff right now.

    My car still has CU license plates.

    A coaching staff can't get rid of me. We can get rid of them though (keeping in mind that I am cautiously optimistic for tomorrow).

    Worse thing for me was comments at work about how the Buffs were great in the 90s and how they really suck now...and, going to lunch on Tuesday and seeing a replay of the game on Fox in fast motion....have you seen that? Very painful without the breaks between each horrible play...

    Walked into Red Robin in Loveland for dinner tonight wearing my buffs shirt, and the hostess says, "We creamed you guys!!" With a big smile. She then asked if I went to the game I said, "ya unfortunaltey". She said, "I wanted to, but the tickets were too much."

    I wonder is she was one of the boycotters?:lol:

    Too bad you're married Leash. There's a great comeback for that. Sometimes it works, but usually only on CSU fans.

    In a sea of ****ed up ****ty threads since that ****ed up ****ty game, this particular thread is a gem (though it started off poorly).

    Wear your CU gear with pride. Get over it. Yeah, it still hurts, but it's still "we" and "us" no matter how many games we lose. We're Buffs, dammit, and it's a whole lot better than any option I can think of.

    Go Buffs!

    I think part of a CU fan is picking yourself up off the mat. It is rarely smooth sailing for CU fans.

    Wore Buff gear Monday. It was tough and heard it from a few people, but to me, doing things like proudly showing the colors when times are tough is what it means to not be a fairweather fan. IMHO, much more so than being consistent with financial support.
