There Is Now a Petition to Allow Tortilla Throwing at Texas Tech’s Jones AT&T Stadium
In Lubbock, we pride ourselves in our traditions.
Nights with friends under the stars, respecting our elders and...sacrificing perfectly delicious tortillas to taunt and strike fear into our enemies.
Occasionally, people try to change our way of life, and mister, we don't take to kindly to that. We take to the internet and start a Change.org petition. It's 2017, and we are civilized, you know.
As I am writing this, 262 have voiced their dissent against the repression of their culture:
This is a xenophobic action to prevent the spread of the tortillabro culture from our great Red Raider nation and to silence our traditions and practices dating back to the beginning of time and the founding of the Matadors, who used to only eat tortillas. We throw them on the field to symbolize feeding the matadors, to power our team to glory. As the restriction on the tortilla tossing has increased, our production has decreased.
Additionally, tortillas are completely harmless, and realistically there's enough wasted downtime with televised football that the time spent picking them up is but a drop in the bucket.
I think we can compromise with the NCAA if not fully move to continue this sacred Texas Tech tradition. Our tortillas cannot block out the sun if we cannot throw them.
And here's who the petition will be delivered to:
The President of the United States Donald Trump, the NCAA, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, President of Texas Tech University Lawrence Shovanek, the Provost of Texas Tech University Dr. Michael Galyean, Athletic Director of Texas Tech University Kirby Hocutt and Deputy Director of Athletics Chad Weiburg.
Well said, my friend. If you would like to join the cause, you can sign the petition here.
