So the Gophers football team has an off week. At least we have the void filled somewhat with a real Gophers hockey game against our redheaded stepchild rival (apologies redheads everywhere--especially if you are a foxy female one--well, as long as you aren't a Husky fan).
However, the hockey game isn't until night anyways. But, we do have a Big Ten football pillow fight on our hands between Iowa and Wisconsin. The Gophers have twice as many Big Ten wins as these two schools combined. Yeah, they are a combined 1-5.
So, this brings up a few questions. First, does anyone else have an interest in getting together in a public place to meet each other and watch the game?
Why a public place?
Because I fear what sort of socially awkward, basement dwelling, sociopathic, blog participating people you all really might be when you aren't hiding behind a computer screen. That way, I can just leave if you all turnout to be the equivalent of the girl-you-met-on-the-internet-who-looked-really-hot-in-the-two-pictures-she-sent-to-you-but-turns-out-to-be-below-your-standards-date that some (admit it) or most of us have experienced. But at least I don't have to be physically attracted to any of you, so chances are good it will go better than the people you met off of hotornot.com or whatever.
Second question: which team do you despise more, Iowa or Wisconsin? Personally, I have always hated Wisconsin worst and never regarded Iowa as that much of a rivalry. I know, I know, custodial rights of a bronze pig are involved. But still, I've always hated Wisconsin's fans and teams worst. I don't even want Wisconsin's women's rowing team to do well and think the school should automatically lose all public funding for not having a baseball program. However, if we clinch the Big Ten title next year in Iowa City, I will for damn sure see to it that at least someone is trying to tear down THEIR goalposts on THEIR homefield.
Please leave comments below if you are interested in a public gathering to hate on either the Chicken Hawks (Iowa) or the Roadkill Rodents (Wisconsin).
BTW--Badgers are roadkill. Gophers dig tunnels underneath roads and therefore elude cars. Gophers really are the superior rodents. If Badger fans or Wolverine fans protest--just bring up the movie Caddyshack. That ends every argument.
