Another day, another affecting tale of the pristine image of fans at West Virginia University. At least according to Maryland lineman A.J. Francis, who informed the Washington Post of how deep his family's roots in the Mountain State go before he then shared this heartwarming little story:
An old lady spit on me last year. Me and Ian Davidson, we were walking out of the tunnel, coming out for the game. She had to be every bit 85 years old. Old lady said, ‘Hey!' Ian was in front of me. He turns around and bumps me so I turn around. As we both turn around, old lady gives us the finger and spits at us. She is like 85 years old. She was a white lady with short gray hair. She looked like she probably had 15 great-grandkids. She was an old lady, just dressed up casually. I was amazed. I couldn't believe somebody's great-grandmother just spit on me.
Ah, yes. That's more like it.
