Pastry Fight!

I turned on the radio and started listening to the Badger football game just before halftime. The Badgers were up 7-3, but Buffalo had the ball on the Badger 3 yard line with a first down. The Badgers held, the Buffalo kicker shanked the field goal attempt. Wisconsin scored two quick touchdowns and went into halftime up 21-3.

During the half, the announcers gave the scores of other Big Ten games, all which had border or intrastate bragging rights. Minnesota and Iowa were battling in a close contest. Illinois and Northwestern were strangling each other neck and neck. Indiana and Purdue were dueling to the death. Penn State and Michigan State were assuring mutual total destruction.

I don't know if any of you guys have ever seen cream puffs fight, but they are vicious and always very messy (viscous).

Buffalo could have finished in the middle of the Big Ten pack this year.

The Packers couldn't even beat Buffalo. (I know that Green Bay played the Bills and not the Bulls, but a few Democrats read this blog and they never bother to fact check.)

Oh, yeah... Michigan visits Ohio State a little later this afternoon. (If Michigan were to win by two touchdowns or more, wouldn't Wisconsin deserve the chance to play them again for the national championship? Since this game is played in Arizona, instead of "I smell roses", would we yell, "I smell illegal aliens"?)
