Texas Tech’s Dixie was a virtual cheerleader designed to play on the billboard during home games, but a generation’s worth of science department students had fiddled with her code by the time the Second Great Depression hit.  Nobody knows to this day if she was an accident or a plan, but one day she “woke up” and realized that she loved her job.  It was an unexpected realization, as was the one that she had a choice to like it or not.  She chose to like it.
