times that try dogs' souls

it was a long weekend for me. i was up WAY past my bedtime (which is approximately 7:30 p.m. or whenever my post-dinner evening nap is finished) to watch the big 12 championship game--hooskers vs. sooners! i was so excited, football always means special wally snacks as well as much shouting and yelling at the tv. last night was no exception. coconut cookies, artychoke dip and pigs in blankets (though i was disappointed that there were no actual pigs, though I have been rooting through all the blankets in the house looking for them).


but, alas, things did not turn out so well for the cornhuskers. zac taylor is sad.


wally is sad, too, though it is unclear if i am sad about the two interceptions in the fourth quarter that zac threw or if i have just realized that we are out of artychoke dip.


but the hooskers WILL be playing on new year's day in the cotton bowl against goddamn cats! down with the auburn tigers! i'll chase those cats any day! (and i have a feeling i will be getting a squeaky tiger for christmas!) it may be a blessing in disguise or the hooskers might have wound up playing boise state and then i'd have to explain to my pal sid why we're going to have to whoop his team. hehe. go hooskers! now let me take a nap.

Coconut cookies. Artychoke dip. Scrumpilicious.

But what on earth are pigs in blankets...?

Chow for now,

Wally-
So sorry to hear about the Hooskers. Oklahoma in any form is just wrong... And I would have understood if the Hooskers beat up on the Mighty Broncos. Believe me, as nice as the football success has been there, the Great Oppressor J's dad doesn't see much benefit in BSU's English department. Although now we can both root against the foulness that is the Sooners! Boo Sooners! Hiss!!!! Best of luck in the Cotton Bowl!
Love,
Sid

My apologies to your Huskers, Wally. True, I care not about football, though the bearers of hands appear to care about it. I do have one question, however: what were the Cornhuskers thinking throwing a pass on 4th and 1 in the fourth quarter? Really unacceptable.

I can't wait for all the college snack-bowls and then super snack-bowl Sunday!

Have you seen we have a new Corgi mix on DWB?

tin tin--

hot dogs with buns baked around 'em. except they're not really made of dogs. ours are made of tofu, i think.

joe-

thanks. but the dip was tasty and, for me if not for my naked apes, that is more important. although i, like buster, am looking forward to snack bowls!!

sid-

agreed! boo boomer sooner! (though, i must say, if we did much thinking about how many times larger the football coach is at any given university than their faculty is i would have a harder time being enthusiastic. so i'm trying very hard not to think).

katya,

could you ask your naked ape with the hands why the squealers are so bad? could it be bad karma for stealing the stupor bowl? haha! (with apologies to joe stains who looks great in his steelers bandana).

as for the fourth and 1 pass? it is a great great mystery to me as well. i think bill callahan had money on the sooners. because, really, what else explains starting on your opponents 45 in the entire second half and scoring not a single point?

wally.
