"The outlook wasn't brilliant, for the Mudville Nine that day,
The score stood 2 to 4 with but one inning left to play,
But when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,
A sickly silence fell upon, the patrons of the game"......
The opening lines to a favorite childhood poem of mine..
"Mighty Casey at the Bat"
If you are not familiar with it it, is about A lesser team that
In a David and Goliath like fashion, whips a better teams ass !!!
Yes, Thats what happened today!!
Appalacian State for Christ Sakes!!!!
The greatest upset in the history of Man's inhumanity to Man!!
Against MY team.....And I was there!!!
I've already received 2 calls from a Spartan, and 1 from a Badger!!
I'll take it....I've done it before...But I'm NOT happy.......
Their running backs name was Joe Bob...Thats it, just Joe Bob!!
His favorite hobbies are ...
3. Giggin for frogs
1. BB-Qued Buzzard Wings
2. Mustard Greens and Possum Innerds
3. Racoon Ka-Bobs...Otherwise known as "Ring-Tail Suprise"!
But they whupped our ass!!!..They deserved the win...NO Excuses!!
Let the calls begin...A miserable day..A miserable week-end...A miserable season!!!
"OH, somewhere in this favored land, the sun is shining bright.
The band is playing somewhere, and someones hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout,
But there is no joy in Mudville-Mighty Casey has struck out".......
...It may as well say;
"There is NO joy in Ann Arbor, Mighty Michigan has struck out"......
Have a great Labor Day Everyone.....I hope it will be better than mine"....
PLEASE..No condolences...Let me bask in my misery...... Peace
