Six: Describe your team with a Jimmy Buffett song. No, we’re serious–do it.
Come Monday. Dad had Jimmy Buffett’s Greatest Hits, and that’s about as far as my experiences with Buffett go. I’d rather be telling you what teams in the Big Ten resemble Arcade Fire members (Win Butler = OSU, Règine Chassagne = Michigan). However, I took a liking to Come Monday, mainly because my hometown is where Hush Puppies shoes are made. This song represents a team who will make a trip to San Francisco (Berkley) during Labor Day weekend and a team that wasn’t meant for glitter rock and roll (the spread offense).
Headin’ up to San Francisco
for the Labor Day weekend show,
I’ve got my hush-puppies on,
I guess I never was meant for
glitter rock and roll.
And honey I didn’t know
that I’d be missin’ you so.
A couple more football-related links:
The Rivalry, Esq. (a Big Ten football blog now part of SportsBlogs Nation) is rooting for MSU to (1) live up to expectations this year and (2) get the Big Ten off to a good start in the “Big 10-Pac 10 Challenge.”
MGoBlog reviews the situation and asserts that the Big Ten Network has actually turned out to be a pretty good thing–both from the conference’s and the fans’ perspectives.
I told you that you wouldn’t get any “analysis” of MSU football here, but any idiot can link to stuff, baby.
