IT'S RIVALRY WEEK!  Nothing like playing your biggest rival on the last football Saturday of the year.  Gotta give it up to Jim Delaney for this scheduling - brilliant move to put the Spartans against the oldest football program in the history of the game. Idiot.

Big Bob joined the ES for the Rutgers game last year.  We drove all the way to New Jersey.  Tickets were $100 each, if you can believe it.  We ran into Doug (Spartan lover from DC) who sat next to us and cheered on the Big Green in our only Big Ten win of the year.

That's the tree that ES punted the football into. 
Landed on the top.  Shit you not. 
Travis Park, San Antonio.
Now to this year.  Yesterday was epic.  Started out the day going to a park and kicking my best punt of the year.  Seriously.  Beautiful spiral.  Ended up on the top of a tree.  Lost my ball.  Sucked.  But, then shot guns at shooting gallery, beer & tequila, went to a Hofbrau house, and actually took a nap.

By the way - LOVING the Big Green men's hoop machine.  The Spartans looked like a pro team last night vs UConn.  Wow.


Debbie Does Texas:  34- 10 MSU.
GVSU Gregger:  27-24 Rugrats.
Aussie Paul:  34-0 MSU.
Jack V:  24-10 good guys.
RGM3:  24-7 Michigan Agricultural College.
Oakland Ronnie:  35-14 MSU with Rutgers going up 14-0 in first quarter
Big Joe and Phantom 309: 38-6 MSU. Rutgers never should have joined the big ten
Glen Arbor Tom:  I just hope the weather sucks.

ES sez:  I miss my football 31, Jimmy Hoffa 10.

FYI - Mike:  Best PAINT JOB EVER!!!!!!!!  Please don't rain on that paint job!
