Well, Badger Hate Week was kind of a dud, finished off with a well-earned victory Saturday afternoon in Madison.
I've heard a lot of trash talking this week about the Badgers. I've heard them called Commie Rodents, and I've heard Bo Ryan, easily the state's most successful basketball coach, called a "fetus-faced douchelicker."* Today, he's the fetus-faced douchelicker who coached those Commie Rodents to a victory over the Gold**.
* - That comment is actually several weeks old. As I mentioned, Badger Hate Week was kind of a dud.
** - You can't just throw away a new name after one season. If you're short-sighted enough to rename your team "The Gold," then you are now and forever "The Gold."
But, there's no need to act like someone just urinated in your Bold Party Chex Mix***. Instead, I'll give you an opportunity to atone for all the Badger hatred you didn't spew forth this week. I'm declaring it Badger Appreciation Week - an opportunity for all of us to share our favorite things about the scrappy, well-coached team from Madison that never seems to pick up the five-star recruits but still somehow continually manages to outperform those gentlemen from Marquette.
*** - Might be the secret ingredient. You never know.
As always, enjoy responsibly.****
**** - I know you won't, but encouraging you in that direction gives me the moral high ground and the right to shake my head when you don't.
