Students Honor Welles By Tying Bandannas Around Their Tits
ALUMNI STADIUM — The Red Bandanna game is a meaningful event at Boston College during which the community honors alumnus, Welles Crowther, and his great sacrifice. Some may have expected that such a sentimental evening accompanied by a forty-degree forecast would have hindered usual provocative gameday garb, but the student body was unaffected by such factors. Young women were seen far and wide sporting the popularized dress of the Red Bandanna game: a bandanna forced, stretched, and morphed against its will into a sorry excuse for a shirt.
Lucy Morales (CSON ’24) commented on her get-up, “When I heard that the game where we wear red bandannas for some reason was this weekend, I was so excited to plan my outfit. I did some trial runs and I really could not get the bandanna I bought to wrap around my whole chest. It’s almost as if the bookstore doesn’t want me to look hot. In a panic, I fastened the back of the shirt with a mixture of staples, safety pins, and mounting tape.”
After a year lost to COVID-19, the handkerchief-clad gaggles of girls returned with a vengeance. Some were visibly disappointed to cover up their revolutionary fashion with an assortment of puffer jackets, but the occasional removal of their exterior gear for pictures or for talking to a potential beau once again exposed their tribute to Welles.
When asked about what the Red Bandanna game means to her, Morales continued, “I just think it’s so fun that they give us different themes sometimes. I’m getting tired of massacring t-shirts from the bookstore into things they were not intended to be. And honestly, maroon is not my color. I much prefer red on me, so that’s why the Red Bandanna game is for sure my favorite of the year.”
At press time, Morales was seen talking on the phone and taking pictures with friends during the inter-quarter tribute for Welles.
