a person who is at the game just to be seen at the game who doesn't really know or care to know what's going on in the actual game, traditions or anything but their own selfish desire for attention. The people who are only at the games because it is the trendy thing to do. January 8, 2012 at 3:23 p.m.

What do socializers look like?

How are they different from real Jayhawks?

College has some socializing tendencies attached....

I say Jayhawk Basketball is a mammoth social experience.

Wooing represents change...

How long has this wooing be going on?

Why suddenly are some objecting?

Are some trying to take the woo out of going to college?

No. If the people that are paying good money to attend the games want to Woo, then let them Woo to their hearts content. It's not hurting anything with the possible exception of a few snob's sensibilities.

Woo on young'uns!

"Some people have the boxed set sitting on the mantle at home. I"

That'd be me. Still haven't popped it in. I want to make sure I'm a full decade behind The Wire in cultural references. Instead of just being late with the references, I'll have a great memory of the show.

I also thought it would be cold by now. Haven't had much down time.

Old Dirty Bastard is probably the best remembered of Wu Tang Clan. But Method Man is my favorite. He was great as "Cheese" on "The Wire". Everybody should see "The Wire". Some people have the boxed set sitting on the mantle at home. I find that very revealing, along with people that play the Swiss Alpine Horn.

I don't think that Mr. Wu from Deadwood really belongs in the KU Rock Chalk chant. But if the kids are into it, who cares? Loved that show. Timothy Olyphant is hot. And great and imaginative cursing. They talk about Cox a lot in it too.

Autie spilled his Clan Macgregor again. Momma ain't going to be happy.

Does he woo? Or WuTang?

Does the guy like to fish? If so the guy from Cox might need a rod. Sponge Bob.
Funny thing, they call that product to keep my chair from getting stains on it..they call it ScotchGuard. Go figure.

When my mom needs service, she just calls up Cox and they send a guy right over.

Personally, I've been fed up with Knology since they bought Sunflower. Does anyone know anything about Cox?

Woo? I'm still trying to get the students to yell, "rip their f'n head off!!!" after the tip.

Also, NWA > WWF.

Rachel, dustin and laura must root for Mizzou and be against KU and America.

I heard that Stalin and Mussolini used to Woo.

The kids should mix it up a little. Remember when they were using the "Rip His Head Off!" line at football games? They should do some stuff from "Jerry McGwire". When an opposing player gets the ball they should yell "Show me the Money! You complete me! You had me at hello!". That would be cool.

There are public toilets on Pearl Street.

Hell, even downtown Lucas Kansas has public toilets.

Does this mean if someone plays this chant at home for a "special" occasion. Anyone dressed as a cheerleader can't be wooing?

"The Journal-World is scraping the bottom of the barrel with these "on the street" questions."

Yep. I'm not sure if I even answered it. But I sure wish I knew where to find Steven Wu. My car is wrecked. Man, that guy sure could fix a car. He used to cook pork all the time, too. I could never get him to understand why you don't pour grease down the drain. One time we had a plumber there for like 3 hours. Big fat guy. I had to look at his butt crack the whole time, too.

Never heard of it. Not when I was in school. Does Steely Dan know about it? There might be legal issues. Are you with me Doctor Wu Are you really just a shadow Of the man that I once knew Are you crazy are you high Or just an ordinary guy Have you done all you can do Are you with me Doctor

I had a roommate named Steven Wu once. He was from Beijing. That guy really knew how to fix cars. He got all wound up about that Tiananmen Square thing. It used to piss him off when I told him that photo of the student standing in front of the tank was staged.
