Thanks to everyone who expressed good wishes in comments below and in e-mail. Sorry if I haven't been able to respond personally.

"Guns Up" is explained here. I find myself saying "Guns Up!" in exactly the same tone in which I say "L for love!" And the associated hand gestures have the same intrinsic properties, too, if "Guns Up" can be done with the right hand. Were I a partisan of one of Texas Tech's traditional enemies, I would say "Guns Up" while making the "L for love!" gesture. Luckily I'm not, and no one who is will ever have that idea or read about it anywhere.
