Civil War CXIV - ESPN College Gameday

Civil War 2010 - the 114th meeting of my Beavs and the (ack gag spit) Ducks.  Would be the 115th, but back around 1911 they decided to cancel the game because things had gotten too rowdy and violent the year before.  Not much has changed in the last century.  This if gonna be a brawl.  ESPN realizes this, so Gameday is making its first stop here in Cowvallis.  There is a lot on the line:
  • The Beavs haven't missed a bowl in a long time, but this has been a tough year.  We need this win to become bowl-eligible.
  • The Ducks are still kinda/sorta #1 and there is nothing more fun beating a #1
  • Aw-burn is still wondering who they will eventually lose to in the Championship game.  The Civil War will clear all that up.
  • It is the Civil War.  Nothing else really need be said
By yesterday afternoon the ESPN Gameday crew was already setting up in the MU Quad.  Since it is a 12:30 PST kickoff, the Gamedazers  start broadcasting at 6:00AM PST!!  Cuh-razy!  My wife is the #2 at the Carl's Jr. restaurant inside the MU so she has to get there WAY early.  Thankfully she doesn't have to work inside. Instead, she be out working the crowd with my future daughter-in-law who also works there.  Future DiL will be dressed in a big foam Carl's Jr. Star mascot/scare the kiddies suit while my wife helps her navigate.  Nothing but the most prestigious jobs for my family!  So, if when you're watching this amazing spectacle on your telly, look for the big Star wandering around.  My wife will be the cute one nearby.

Speaking of my wife, today is the 10th Anniversary of our first date.  Remind me not to come home empty-handed tonight after work, K?

  1. Wow...and you owe it all to me:) hehe. If it weren't for my advice to your wife to "go for it" all those years ago...you might still be a couch potato with only a Coke Big Gulp to keep you company. Just sayin'...

  2. The only thing the Democrats haven't messed up yet.

    Give them time. They'll mess it up (for our own good of course.)

  3. Patti - The next time married life leaves me so stressed that I go on a multi-state crime spree, I'll remind you of this. Just sayin'...

    Infidel - I can see it already: Sebelius out there announcing that they've used TARP money to develop safety airbags that automatically deploy whenever an opposing player gets too close.

  4. I understand your sensibilities here, Inno. But I'll be rootin' for the Ducks. Why? Coz I want them to remain Numero Uno, and I want to watch them beat the living dogsh!t out of Auburn. I've read too damned many SEC homers of late, and those asshats (I use the term most respectfully) NEED to be taken down a peg or six. Football doesn't begin and end in Redneck land, although they are reasonably accomplished.

    OTOH, there's always TCU. So I'm conflicted.

  5. Buck - You didn't hear this from me, but if the Ducks win tomorrow I will root for them. Stomp Aw-burns manparts right into the dirt, I say.

  6. Sun Devils won our civil war, it's time for OSU to man up and knock those Ducks down.

  9. Yep, it's Duck season here in redneckland. I'm ready to see some slappin' beaver tails.

    Ahem.

    Nonetheless, the valiant lads of the SEC will indubitably trounce all comers not of The Conference. Waterfowl or Horned Amphibians.

    Six is right -- hie thee to the shopping venues!

  10. Moogie sez: Ahem.

    Oh shit, Oh Dear. Just back from Switzerland and I STILL manage to get sensitive body parts caught in the wringer. Dang.

  11. Switzerland's gonna yank your visa, Buck! Didja see the last play of first half!

    Dang, Inno. It's not too gorgeous where you live or anything.
