"...Here it is: your hnt has to be a shot of you with "Suck it, Griz" written in blue (and gold if you can find it) either somewhere on your body - your choice as to where - or on a sign that you're holding..."As mentioned a few weeks ago, Gucci Mama and I had a bet on the Grizzly/Bobcat football game awhile back. Montana vs. Montana State. The 110th "Brawl of the Wild". She's not a football fan, by any stretch of the imagination, but given her ties to MSU, and mine to UM, a bet had to be made. I was confident, especially since the Griz have won this game far more times than they've lost. It is THE game in Montana. You are either a Griz fan, or a Cat fan, or you're not a Montanan. There's no place in between.
I was so confident in this bet that I forwarded links to Gucci where she could buy a Griz thong. Or a Griz teddy. Or other bits of Griz paraphernalia that she could model when she paid up her bet with a Griz-themed HNT. Unfortunately, as the season wore on, the Griz lost more games than they had in the previous 2-3 years combined. And the games they were winning were not overly impressive. The Cats, on the other hand, were winning the big games, but only squeaking past much lesser teams. In other words, there was no way to know who would win this game.
Actually, the last time I made a bet with a blogger on this game was in 2005. The Griz lost that game too. That should have been my red flag moment. Without going into detail, the Griz lost this year's game, as well as a spot in the playoffs. And the Cats earned a #4 seed in the playoffs (which I don't think they deserve...). And I lost the bet. The quote at the top is my end of the bet.
You know that she was wanting that on my ass. I tried. Really, I did. Do you have any idea how hard it is to write anything on your own ass? And there's not really anyone around who could do the writing for me--I would gladly have enjoyed having Gucci herself come up to do it. Someone suggested I write it on a mirror in blue paint, and take a picture in the mirror. Well, that's difficult to do with a cheap point and shoot, and the blue body paint didn't go on the mirror too well. So, in a panic, and because she did give me an option, I threw on my official MSU band sweater (yeah, I got my first degree from MSU--shhhhhh!), tweaked the picture to bring out the blues and golds, and came up with the best that I could.
Trust me--it would have been much better if Gucci had won... And before anyone suggests it, there will be no bets on the UM/MSU basketball games this winter!
"There it is, I hear them, they're close, they're angry. As I raise my head, still panting heavily, I see their silhouettes, as they walk closer, everything comes into focus. I can literally see the fire burning in their eyes, this is what they've been waiting for. I'm trapped, tired, weak and defenseless, in perfect condition for a beating."
