Sign at Kansas-Missouri game


You might not get the reference if you're not a native Kansan but it's a take on a giant mural in the Kansas capitol building portraying Bleeding Kansas and noted abolitionist John Brown. John Brown was famous for his fiery rhetoric, using swords to hack up five pro-slavery settlers in response to the burning of Lawrence, and eventually dying in an attempt to seize the federal armory in order to provide arms for a slave rebellion. He's what some might call a bit of a fanatic but he was our fanatic so we appreciate him.
