Title: Technicolor Explanation for the CDF Wjj Excess

Abstract

We propose that the 3.2{sigma} excess at {approx}150 GeV in the dijet mass spectrum of W+jets reported by CDF is the technipion {pi}{sub T} of low-scale technicolor. Its relatively large cross section is due to production of a narrow Wjj resonance, the technirho, which decays to W{pi}{sub T}. We discuss ways to enhance and strengthen the technicolor hypothesis and suggest companion searches at the Tevatron and LHC.
