(Cicada sounds) We are getting killed out there. We have to quit. Quit?! Y’all wanna quit?! This battle lasts a little longer than usual, y’all ready to throw in the towel?! It’s the fifth overtime! They’ve been putting over 90 on us every day since May! This summer just feels different. Like it’s not letting up! So that’s it? Two hundred-something years we’ve been fighting this heat. Y’all ready to just give up?! We can do this! It’s in our DNA! It’s in our blood. Yeah, about that. I don’t think Louisiana has any blood left. Mosquitos ate him up. (mumbling) (mumbling) So you gonna let a couple of mosquito bites get you down? What would the other states think of y’all?! Actually…I ran into New York a couple of days ago… And she said that the high was 81 degrees. Can you imagine? I have the most beautiful scarf that I would wear. It’s so soft! Enough! Listen to yourselves! Whining about a couple of extra degrees! I hate to be “that state,” but… …you know…humidity… It’s not that bad! No, Coach, it’s pretty bad! Ok fine! We’re on a roll, now! Anybody else have something they’d like to complain about?! Florida? How ’bout you? I’m actually just a smidge cold. You know you can’t ask her. Well do you want me to ask Florida Man? ‘Cause this heat ain’t gettin’ to him! While y’all are sitting in here complaining, he’s in an abandoned Radio Shack wrestling an alligator! I’m sorry, Coach. It just feels like this summer’s never gonna end. Well, you know what? This heat might never go away. I know that’s not what y’all wanna hear, but, deep down you know it to be true. But I know that each and every one of you have trick-or-treated in sweat drenched costumes, deep fried turkeys and your skin on Thanksgiving, and prayed that the Christmas tree won’t spontaneously combust! You didn’t let the heat stop you then. And you’re not gonna let it stop you now, are you?! (together)
No. The worst is behind us! ‘Cause after that sweltering heat comes what?! (together)
Fall. And with fall comes a reward for our suffering. Anybody wanna remind me what that is? (together)
Football! Ehh… This is our moment! We do what no other states can! Now let’s get out there and show that heat what the South is really about! (cheering) Can we stay in the AC a little longer? Oh, yeah, we’re not going back out there ’til they need us. (sighs of relief) Renasant Bank. The best bank in the South. Visit renasantbank.com to learn more.
