The "WE"*

The "WE*"

*Often on OBNUG contributors use the word "WE", to start a thought about the Broncos. It sounds like a fan who is hanging on by living vicariously as a Bronco without any skin in the game. A fan who rarely can lift his or her own weight in the Gym or can run faster than a 10 seconds in the forty dash to catch a bus, uses the word "We", when suggesting a change is needed in the Bronco determination to win it all.

The "We", is an awkward exclamation point for something serious that has to change, exclaimed by a Bronco Fan. Yes, "we" are a part of something without playing on the Blue. We are those whose want to be part of that arduous journey towards high athletic achievement. They (the team), play in behalf of our desire for excellence under the Boise flag. Players know they aren't under display for some self centered attention, they are part of the "We". They represent our dreams and goals for this University, this town and this state (nation).

It is import to use the word "We" when starting a thought about the Broncos, not as grammatically incorrect use of the word "We", but as an affirmation of being a part of this nation who bleed Blue and can't play in behalf of all others. When using the word "We", to start a thought in behalf of the team, it is appropriate and demonstrates that you Bleed Blue beyond normal social constraints. It is perhaps important that by placing an asterisk after the the Word "WE*" indicates you Bleed Blue, and have the right to use the word, "We*" when starting a Bronco contribution for the the team as exampled ""we*" need to make the run game better this year." That statement says even though I am not on the team, I Bleed Blue and are part of the team as a fan, hence, I have the right to be part of the "We*"!

Any outsider will not know this, but insiders understand Bleeding Blue goes beyond athletic ability or team membership it is an inherent rights of being OBNUG. We* is the best word to use when writing about the team, just use the asterisk after WE*, and your fellow fans know you Bleed Blue and have OBNUG rights on the word WE*, even though your are not on the team when in fact you are.
