This one is for you, Peter.
As a student at the University of Florida, I’m exposed to a whole lot of Gator-crazy. It’s not something I buy into. I’m not here because UF has a great sports record, nor do I expect to feel any sort of nostalgic loyalty to the school after graduation.
To the teachers and people who helped me learn, yes. To the abstract concept of a Gator Nation…I don’t think so.
But, an article in the Gainesville Sun recently caught my attention: The Gator Nation now exists in virtual reality.
Second Life, the online digital world I’ve heard so much about (but to which I pay as much attention as the GN), is now home to a virtual Gator Nation.
And they used the word spawn. Love that.
