Off to the Purdue Game!
Last post before I hit the road for South Bend. The gang's mental state? Comfortably optimistic, with the tiniest nagging doubt. We'll know by the end of the first quarter if this is going to be a spread-covering slap-around or a goofily-close gagfest. Either way, we'll be drunk and violent and maybe a little bit wet.
For all you newcomers who swung by to check out my Valenti rant (and, sheesh, there are a whole hell of a lot of you), welcome to the site. Read around a little bit, and if you like what you see, you're invited to come back over the course of the season, no matter what your personal team affiliation is. We'll laugh, we'll cry, and we'll get fighting drunk and watch some football. God bless America.
One last Purdue-related note... it looks like Joe Tiller has issued an ultimatum at his latest press conference. I'm not sure if this qualifies as trash-talking or "bulletin board material", but it's pretty scary no matter what.
Catch you cats when I'm back in town!
