So, I hear there is a Minnesota game today. I'm not sure if excitement is what I'd use to describe everyone's reaction. Trepidation and hesitant concern feel more appropriate. But ready or not, the Gophers take on Purdue later this afternoon. It will be a thing that happens and with luck, a GOOD thing that we all enjoy thoroughly. If not, well, there's always bourbon.
Who faces off in this gladitorial gridiron matchup?
The Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Purdue Boilermakers.
What time is the game?
2:30 PM CST at Ross Aide Stadium in West Lafayette, IN
So what's the deal with this drum?
Ah, yes. That thing.
Depends on who you ask. Purdue people will tell you that it's a really neat big ass drum. Others?
Who's to say Purdue's giant drum isn't a vat in which all Purdue students are grown?— Frothy (@FrothyGopher) October 10, 2015
@MVofDT yeah. = / But I suspect real people are in the minority and that Drum People call all the shots. Why else have that dumb big drum?— Frothy (@FrothyGopher) October 10, 2015
@FrothyGopher To signal the reptilians living deep below the Earth’s service— Cash4Claeys (@MVofDT) October 10, 2015
@FrothyGopher And by service, I mean surface, but yes — the Purdue Big Drum replicants serve their scaly-eyed masters— Cash4Claeys (@MVofDT) October 10, 2015
That seems reasonable.
Reptile people? Dammit Purdue. Will the weather be nice at least?
