What we're doing is writing about sports and referencing pop culture, a hot topic in the blogosphere lately. See, there was a college football game Wednesday night. Why? Who the fuck knows? But Marshall was hosting Central Florida and who was on the Marshall sidelines? None other than Matt fucking McConaughey.
He was there supporting his upcoming film, "We Are Marshall," about how the university overcame a tragic plane crash in 1970. McConaughey was wearing a Marshall shirt (well, a "We Are Marshall" shirt) and was adamantly supporting the Thundering Herd.
Though last we checked, Matthew was a "diehard" Texas Longhorns fan. Remember at the 2006 Rose Bowl? The camera couldn't get off of him.
Ok, so he roots for Texas. Big deal. But now he's going ape shit over Marshall too? What if the two teams squared off? He'd be in the same quandary that he's in when he's drunk and staring at a white girl and black girl. Gotta pick one, Matt.
We imagine McConaughey was heartbroken too when Central Florida won 23-22 on a field goal with about 10 seconds left in the game. Once a Marshall fan, always a Marshall fan. Yeah, that's it.
