Calling all New Mexico State Aggies fans. Your team has the munchies and you can help.
In a twist on Little League moms lining up with after-game treats, New Mexico State’s budget-conscious football staff distributed an e-mail this week asking fans to donate after-practice or late-night snacks for hungry players.
It’s a consequence of the national economy, of course.
“It’s a decision we had to make with regard to our meals,” first-year coach DeWayne Walker said Thursday. “There are a lot of other areas where we have to make tough choices with how we’re going to spend our money.”
We have some starving 300 lb men with need for more nourishment. That sales pitch will go over real well. Apparently not…..
That was the bad news. The good news for Walker and his players has been the community’s response. The memo went out after the first day of practice, and six donors wasted no time before they ponied up.
We’re not talking about Cheetos here.
“It’s good stuff like trail mix or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,” linebacker Jamar Cotton said. “We had a guy bring in a bunch of watermelons. That was great. The team was excited. It was like little kids getting lollipops.”
As the saying goes- There’s a sucker born every minute.
