This post has nothing to do with miniature wargaming. You’ve been warned.
Big fan of college football here. I’ve spent the last month whining and bitching and moaning like a little girl over the travesty that is an in-conference bowl game – and a national championship game no less! This is an outrage that makes a mockery of everything that college football is supposed to stand for. It’s the worst thing to happen to America since slavery. And I don’t even like Oklahoma State.
Frankly, I just couldn’t be bothered to watch the title game this year. I’ve seen LSU-Alabama and lost interest in the season after the Orange Bowl. I wasn’t disinterested enough to start jawing with some of the guys over on a sports related message board. One thing led to another, as these things often do, and a bet was made. If the BCS title game had really good ratings, then I’d sport a My Little Pony avatar for six months.
This one right here.
I even made My Little Pony avatars for a few other posters there. Here’s the two I made for a Georgia Tech fan:
The ratings for the game were the lowest in almost a decade, if not ever. As a statement of how seriously I take the whole thing, I’ve been wearing this thing for the last few weeks anyway. Now that I’ve won the bet, I’m just wearing it because I can. In the meantime, those of us that won the bet have to come up with an avatar that the SEC fans who lost the best have to wear for a month.
Here’s my first choice:
Just try being taken seriously on a sports board sporting this little number.
But the message board in question generally requires an avatar that is sports related. This is sports related – it’s got “Team” in it! In the event that the board rejects Team Edward, I’ve got this as a backup:
When in doubt, keep it simple.
This concludes our brief interlude. Thank you for your indulgence.
