Dennis Gates, the man you are
I need to express my gratitude for a second.
Dennis Gates is a lot of things to us Mizzou fans. Affable goofball. Recruiter extraordinaire. Savior of Mizzou Hoops? Maybe too early to say.
But one of the things I deeply appreciate about Coach Gates is his habit of posting the Mizzou sports schedule every Monday during the school year. First, it’s an incredibly practical, innocent way to use social media that channels a bygone era of internet posting. Second, it’s a great way to keep track of what’s going on as a Mizzou sports fan — ever since I started seeing these, I’ve genuinely checked scores and outcomes for teams I wouldn’t otherwise pay much attention to. Third, it’s ideal for content planning.
Big week in CoMo for @MizzouAthletics! @mizzoufootball takes the field, Aug. 31 @ 7pm. @MizzouTFXC will start their season on Sept. 1 @ 8:30am & 9am. @MizzouVB is back Sept. 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. Good luck to @MizzouSoccer on their 2 road contests this week! #MIZ #MizzouMonday— Dennis Gates (@coachdgates) August 28, 2023
Thank you, Mr. Gates, for taking 5-10 minutes out of every Monday to type this tweet. I’m deeply appreciative.
