I hung a Kansas Big 12 championship banner in my office at work, then came back to find my boss, who is a die-hard Mizzou fan, starring at it.

He saw me and said, "It must be nice"

"What?"

"To win something"

"Aww, you'll win something someday. Poor Tigers. But we've got a long way to go."

This is the first time a Mizzou fan has ever outwardly expressed jealousy. I always knew it was there, but it's normally replaced by venomous hatred.


(just felt like sharing)

Yes, jealousy is resentment, while envy is covetous. His co-worker could have been jealous of the team's success or envious of the title they won.

Since he was looking at the flag, he was probably envious, but he could still be considered jealous. Whenever you look up envy in a thesaurus, it's one word definition in jealousy.

Resent and desire are a few other words used in short definitions.

I'm not sure if it's a good practice to get on the KU side of your MU boss.

from Dictionary.com

Envy and jealousy are very close in meaning. Envy denotes a longing to possess something awarded to or achieved by another: to feel envy when a friend inherits a fortune. Jealousy, on the other hand, denotes a feeling of resentment that another has gained something that one more rightfully deserves:

****

Unless the Mizzou fan is jealous of Sedated, he is envious of KU's accomplishments.

It must make the bathroom brighter. It also gives everyone something to look at while they do their business.

So let me make sure I have this straight.

My Chief fan relatives are envious of me getting the chance in a few weeks to touch and have my picture taken with the Colts' SB trophy. They're also jealous that the Colts and not the Chiefs won the SB.

Have I got it right? ROFL

I was wondering how St. Lou handled that. What the Colts are doing is putting the trophy on a multi state 'Thank the fans' tour. They're hitting various towns in Indiana, Ohio and Illinois. They give you a few minutes to have your picture taken with it, get an autograph if a player is there and they have a section of the trophy they'll let the fans touch. They'll polish the trophy except for that section. It's their way of including the fans and saying thank you.

Kinda cool actually.
