Texas Gov. Rick Perry, an Aggie through and through, is pushing "Roll, tears, roll'
Yahoo Sports ^ | 9/13/13 | Pat Forde

Posted on 09/13/2013 9:13:55 AM PDT by Lakeshark

Rick Perry ended our conversation with a prediction – Texas A&M 35, Alabama 24 – but in a true politician's flourish, he added a walk-off catch phrase:

"Roll, tears, roll," Perry said, sounding quite pleased with the line.

Yes, the governor of Texas and 2012 Republican presidential aspirant was talking trash at the Crimson Tide. If it costs him the state of Alabama in a much-rumored 2016 bid to become the 45th president of the United States, well, he's prepared to live with that.
**snip**
Perry is many things, but timid is not among them. A man who has a concealed carry permit and once signed into law a bill allowing the hunting of wild hogs from helicopters has the kind of bravado that plays well in his home state. So the idea of seceding from the Big 12 played well with his swaggering attitude.
**snip**
**snip**
Of course, Rick Perry will be at the game Saturday. He will hear the Yell Leaders do the old cheers from his days, and the newer ones, too. He will applaud the verve and nerve of Johnny Football. He will revel in the spectacle and relish the bold new world he helped his alma mater enter last year.

And at the end, Gov. Gig' Em will hope to see the visitors' tears roll.

Since we have a phony president, bested by a Russian, and lots of other depressing things happening, I thought I'd start a little fun for the end of the week: I don't have a dog in this hunt, but Gov Perry is making this a great spectacle. Maybe he'll shoot off his gun before the coin flip, enraging every sports commentator in the world!

Have at it! Gig em or Roll......

Are the announcers allowed to say that kind of violent thing anymore?

No you guys are rocking!

Saban Satan takes the field.

Crazy Rick, the swaggering, shooting, rock painting cheerleader will likely be found with Jhonny foosball tipping a few in the parking lot before the game.....

Bama’s defense didn’t look that great against Va Tech.....I think A&M just might roll in this one.

Before there was "Oops" Perry gave us "adios mo-fo." He's quote gold and a fine rapper. To wit:

Rappin Rick Perry

Satan Saban will have them ready........he may have to pay them more for this game though.

Or maybe he could show Jhonny the money........

Just in case some might miss my point........./s

Whoa, right you are.

The Bear will be rooting for much trash talk, an overtime game that will end in a tie, on a field so torn up there is no more grass left........

Some of the Aggie starting defense hasn’t played this year...will be on the field tomorrow. Still...questionable.

Good, I hope it helps. The Aggies letting Sam State score 28 points was kinda sad.

SHS has played for the national championship the past two years ...in their class. They have a good team.

I'm not sure but I think the Aggies played 5 or 6 freshmen on defense...first 2 games.

I’m looking forward to the game. I’m pulling for the Aggies, I hope Johnny Football tears it up.

The winner may need to score at least 40 points.

The winner is definitely going to have to score more points than the loser.

I am. (at Rice).

You most certainly are NOT Rice. However, there were six starting defense players for A&M that were not there for Rice, but will be for Alabama.

I expect it to be about like it was last year. Aggies will win.

Woody didn’t know that Art Schlichter owed bookies $50K, but smelled a rat and took it out on Charlie Bauman of Clemson.

It was a shoot out, that’s for sure. Nice rivalry started up in the SEC, that’s for sure. Alabama and A&M should rivals for years to come!
