Michigan Basketball's Anthony Wright last night at the meeting with the Maize Rage:
"Well every now and then a really good pump-up song will come on, then 10 seconds later the band will come in playin Yankee Doodle."
Certainly a disparaging way to describe your classmates who volunteer their time to motivate you. But let's give him the benefit of the doubt here: Anthony Wright is a smart guy and is just describing the team's performance with a historical metaphor. Wikipedia:
"The song's origins were in a pre-Revolutionary War song originally by British military officers to mock the disheveled, disorganized colonial "Yankees" with whom they served in the French and Indian War. At the time, the most common meaning of the word doodle was that of "simpleton" or "fool".
Sounds about right. So, Anthony, let's not bite one of the few remaining hands that feeds you.
