Transcript Resident David Betcke gives a loud shout for the Cougars. He was one of many residents that painted their faces to show their spirit. Photo by Mark Lacy. Resident Tom Von Ruff screams encouragement for the Cougars against Texas A fit M. He painted his face with the EAT MB slogan that was many students* rally cry against the Aggies. Photo by Mark Lacy. Bleacher Creatures!?! This year has been a year of change; for improvement, both on the fields and in the stands. We started out at the Louisiana Tech game with a new team, a second-year head coach and a fresh supply of spirit and yes, of course, our notorious face paint. In the last two years the residence halls' block seating program has given our group a chance to begin some school traditions, and create a true "home team" advantage for our Coogs. Remember, Rice has the "MOB," and we have "The Creature." Webster might define a "Bleacher Creature" simply as: one who participates at UH sporting events by one or all of the following methods: 1. Never actually sitting in the seats that he or she has obtained, but choosing instead to stand for the entire game. 2. By showing spirit for the Cougars, usually in the form of unusual cheers and gestures, performed with extra vigor especially when the "chips are down." 3. By tailgating all the games to heckle the opposing team's arriving fans into quiet submission. 4. By painting paws or UH symbols on their faces(in the extreme instances creatures have a propensity to cover their entire bodies with red and white paint to display their school colors prominently). Yes, it is true that face painting helps you lose some of your inhibitions, and maybe that's why we have been doing it for the last four years. Then again, maybe we do it because it helps us identify those with whom we share a common bond. Our greatest praise to those who decided to take the risk, paint a paw on their face, and make the statement "I'm a Bleacher Creature!" Go Coogs! ► Craig Oakmen Residents at Games ■ 165
