Speaking of towels, if I ever became a Sikh, I'd wear a terrible towel on my head. Shout out to any Sikhs on here. I met a guy that was a Sikh several years back and he was one of the nicest people I've ever met. It must be a rule that you have to be in the top .1% of nice people in the world before they invite you to be a part of what they're doing.
I deal with several Sikh students, both male and female, and they are pretty much the nicest and most respectful group of students I've ever met.
OT: Did you know that Captain Nemo of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea fame was a Sikh?
He wasn't very nice, though...
My first encounter with a Sikh was with a competitor's company at the time at a trade show. He was being very friendly and I was a little suspicious he was looking for competitive info or doing something with a bad motive. But I've kept in touch over the years with the guy and it turns out he's still the same nice guy that's just a little bit of a techie/nerd that always asks a lot of questions about everything.
I have to admit, I met the guy shortly after 9/11 and I thought he might be a terrorist. I didn't really know what terrorists looked like. I just thought a guy with that much facial hair and a towel on his head must be one. Boy am I embarrassed to tell that.
Looking back on my life I can say that was the one time I was a racist. Although I think everyone acted a little different after 9/11. I think I was extra freaked out about it because I was on a flight that day that never took off. To this day, I still feel a little weird about flying.
What chaps my ass is that fans of all other teams will ridicule the Terrible Towel, but then I see all these other teams passing out their free knockoff towels and the fans waving them around. How hypocritical.
