Man I wasn't even trippin over that.

Shoot, I am used to Omegas talking junk :lol:, but its all in fun. :nod: Shoot on our yard, we've historically gotten along well with them. It's a mutual respect thing. They beat us in a step show, okay, we turn right around and beat them. We beat them in a combined college/alumni basketball game between chapters and, well, I personally have never lost to the Omegas the few times I've played against them (as late as 2002), but hey, it's competition. It's all love.

I always come thru to their grill and chill session at homecoming, hang out with their brothers from the era we all pledged, talk mess laugh and trip out....It's all good. :nod:

Piggy back off Strike.

That was amazing! Perfect song. Excellent craftsmanship. You could just feel it and I don't even know these young men but I definitely know the feeling. I was moved to tears watching them.

This is what a lot of young people sign up for. Many of us don't just want to wear letters. We didnt want to just be a minor minority shareholder of a large, dysfunctional-and at times dictatorship-ish corporation. Many of us, I know this is true for ME, did not need the organization to become a relevant individual. Many of us were in search of something greater than ourselves with a meaning and a purpose that would serve as a part of our legacy long after we dead and gone. Something that great shouldn't just handed to you in exchange for a check/money order and you don't have to be beaten or disrespected to gain access to it. Still, there should be a chosen, select, exceptional, elite FEW who are chosen and proven to be the cream of the crop and justly rewarded and recognized after proving themselves. These are my beliefs about what it should and probably used to mean to be a chosen member of a BGLO. I highly doubt the tears streaming down the faces of these young men are simply a result of their parents writing checks or their Frat fathers signing them in just because. Simply giving people money for a membership card is hardly a gut-wrenching experience. Did you cry when you turned your cable on? I digress.

Soon, these young men will realize that becoming a member of a BGLO is less about bonds, loyalty and brotherhood/sisterhood and more about money and power but watching them on this video in their crowning moment was truly a reminder of how things SHOULD be and it was beautiful!

@Soror J I totally agree.

I'll never forget listening to the graduate advisor speak at the interest meeting my sophomore year and I will never forget how tough she was on us. I'll never forget the moment my best friend pinned me...we both balled like crazy! It was amazing. And I will never forget that long march across the campus to do our Neo show.

It's in those moments that your thoughts about your organization are the most pure. Your heart is so full of love for the bond and you are so driven to just "get there" and earning your right "to be there" means so much.

And hey, if you can't look at the younguns I can! I'm single lol

What I am talking about is the comments some of you folks that are darn near ready to receive free tea or at-least able to get into the 30 & up clubs are making about these college aged kids. Y'all know good and well that if we (the fellas) start talking about what we would like to do with some
17-20 year girls we would be read the Riot Act. It's one thing to look at em, but to comment on what you'd like to do and all is a bit much.

But if that is not the case then I will stand corrected.
Title: Re: Powerful A-PHI-A Probate video
Post by: Bearforlife on April 15, 2011, 04:45:10 PM
I don't think anyone said what they would do besides look. If a young man is handsome, he just is. If a young lady is pretty, she just is. We were just admiring the guys.... sheesh.

The young men were handsome. A far cry from the popular depictions of young black men with saggy pants; clean cut, well dresses and they all looked happy. A smile goes a long way. We were admiring the Pham...calm down fellas.

I guess, I'm especially sensitive to this because 1)I am soon to have a child that will be college age and 2) the kids in my program are of this age group. And I know good and dayum well...and so do you...that I or any other men on this board couldn't go around hollering how good a 19 year old looks and referring to them as eye-candy and not be looked at crossways.

But it's not like you sorors weren't gonna back each other up. So, yes carry on.  ::)

Every football season they are tripping over themselves looking at the FVSU Dancing Doll Divas binoculars and all....I'm not offended...I just shake my head because I know those girls don't want their old azzes anyway......
