Grammar Police - Team Should Be Proud

Team did great. Players did great. Coaches did great.

The Team should be Proud.

If all you did was open a can of beer than you have nothing to be proud of. Most misused word in the dictionary.

Now, I know what you are all feeling. I am feeling it too. There is no proper word in the English language.


Definition of the word proud:

“Feeling deep pleasure or satisfaction as a result of one’s own achievements, qualities, or possessions or those of someone with whom one is closely associated.”

I think we as fans feel close enough to the team as Cougar family to be proud of them. Just like someone can be proud of a family member or friend for an accomplishment.


Different prides, you’re thinking of the feeling of pride that we would get through accomplishment.

I think we’re all feeling, something akin to civic pride. We are proud of our association with the team. either via fandom, almunus status, or both.

I’m proud that I made it through this week without having a stroke. Proud to be strokeless!
