Among the estimated one million people who crammed into New York’s Times Square to ring in 2013 on Monday night was at least one Washington State fan.
During ABC’s Dec. 31–Jan. 1 broadcast of “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” the camera showed one of the TV special’s correspondents standing amid the revelers in Times Square. Almost directly above the correspondent’s head, one can see a flag of Wazzu’s trademark Cougar logo waving proudly. As has been chronicled over the years, Washington State fans make sure a Wazzu flag waves behind the set of ESPN’s “College GameDay” every single Saturday, no matter where the show takes place.
Perhaps this fan was resolving on behalf of Washington State fans everywhere to enjoy a better football season in Year Two of the Mike Leach Era after a 3-9 season in 2012.
