So to be perfectly clear, yes, I am saying that the St. X students were making fun of the sort of people who would say "We've Got Jesus" and the sort of people who would actually believe they were serious.
Dude, it was a joke (skip to 8:00):
We've Got Roast Beef:
And this "We've Got Jesus" thing was hardly the most obnoxious shibboleth to emerge from a
St. X mouth of late...the Arby's "Good Mood Food" guy is St. Xavier Class of 1996's own Andy Breving:
(BTW my VHS camcorder footage of Andy being booed while singing Morrissey songs back in 1995 is coming sometime soon to a youtube near you...)
St. Xavier doesn't really care about football
No disrespect to the football coaches or the players, but St. Xavier's culture doesn't revolve around athletics (Colerain's certainly does). The average St. X student doesn't care if the team wins or not. St. X would still be the best high school in the city if it had no athletic programs whatsoever. Because we've got Jesus.
