Win or Lose, Some Say They’ll be Hog Fans for Life
Hog fans were all over Fayetteville on Saturday, showing their support for the Arkansas football team.
Fans showed their support outside Razorback Stadium as the football team stepped off the bus before their big matchup against the University of Alabama.
Frank Hunt and Tom Ashcraft have been friends since high school. Both have been Razorback fans for as long as they can remember.
“I’m just a Hog fan from day one,” Hunt said. “I am 75 years old. I started listening to the Razorbacks on the radio when I was about 8 years old and I never quit.”
Ashcraft came all the way from Charleston, S.C., for the game and said he wouldn’t miss it for the world.
“Listen, I have been a Razorback fan since Frank Broyles came here, so I go back a long way,” he said.
Despite the rainy weather, a Razorback flash mob took over the Fayetteville Town Square Saturday morning, performing a choreographed routine to, ‘Pig Sooie – A Tailgate Song” produced by former lady Razorback basketball player, Celia Anderson.
Janet Selby and her friends choreographed the routine.
“It takes more than a fair-weather fan, that`s for certain, no pun intended. I think everyone in Arkansas is a great Razorback fan so everybody was happy to come out and support me and the Razorbacks,” Selby said.
