Okay… I know what you’re thinking. No, it’s not going to be me in a little red off-the-shoulder number along with heels and a matching purse. That would be a sight too horrible to contemplate on ANY number of levels.
I have this black Doctoral gown with velvet patches and a black tam with gold piping on it that I use exactly once a year when I officiate at graduation ceremonies. This year it got me thinking- these are Ti-Cat colours. I asked our college librarian if I could borrow her Master of Library Sciences degree hood (black and gold) but she turned me down (definitely NOT a football fan). But… I could get my wife to whip up a facsimile good enough for a costume hood.
So- should I show up some game in all this academic garb in black and gold… maybe carrying a matching football? If so- then what game? The robe can get pretty hot so mid-summer is out and I would have to call it a scratch on a rainy day.
Good idea or just stupid? Any suggested day and reasons why?
