To gig or not to gig

That is the question our latest political commentator must answer every week. What am I talking about? Not what, who. Our very own Sarah Hope has been recruited to write political commentary for a new Aggie journal/blog called AggieWire.

It hasn't launched yet but they have assembled their staff and are putting together their inaugural issue. The really cool thing is that they sought Sarah out. They had read some of her posts on various web properties like FaceBook and liked them so much they went to her and asked her to join the team. Pretty impressive huh?

By the way, for those of you not from these parts, one of the Aggie calls is "gig'em Aggies" it's like "go Irish" or "roll tide". Gig or to gig is from the Latin gigorous which means to poke with a sharp stick. Used in a sentence one might say "Gee Paw, we was just gig'en frogs"

Will your candidate be poked with a sharp stick? Gig'em Sarah

I bet most Aggies did not know where that came from. I sure didn't. The Latin part anyway,
They know. They all know.
