Amuse me, ASU me

Thursday greetings Tiger Fans,

Mizzou wraps up non-conference play on Saturday against the Arkansas State Red Wolves, a powerhouse from Joneslkjaszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Oh sorry, fell asleep from boredom thinking about the game. Kickoff is a 6:30 pm, if the game is not well in hand by 7:30, there will be grumblings everywhere.

I’ll be tailgating by 1:00 or so.  Come on out when you will.  Bryan and Val Ninichuck of Wingate Pest Control & Lawn Care fame are taking care of the bulk of the food this time, with Buckingham’s providing the stuff.  Sides or desserts or something still will be eaten, I’m sure.

Call Wingate for all your Pest Control and Lawn Care needs.  Like, say, you have a bunch of Red Wolves from Arkansas on your plastic grass.

Go Tigers.

Rockets is Ohioan Sarcasm

Holy Thursday, Tiger Fans.  It’s already Thursday, it seems, which means football!!! is almost here again.  Saturday the Tigers host the Rockets from Toledo University.  Kickoff is at 2:30 pm, tailgating will start mid-morning sometime, come out what you will.  We’ll have some food, but we have no idea what yet.  Bring what you will.

If you’re wondering what Rockets have to do with Toledo, it turns out the answer is “not much.”  From Toledo’s website, it seems Toledo played “then-powerful Carnegie Tech” in 1932, but had no nickname.  After a 32-12 loss, a Toledo student was asked by media members what to call his team.  “Skyrockets,” he said.

I think we all know that he really said, “huh?  what, I wasn’t listening.  Oh, whatever, dude, Skyrockets.  Clearly.  We just lost 32-12.”  He then took the sock out of his phonograph horn and put the latest Bessie Smith record back on at an inappropriate volume, later telling his chums how he pulled one over on a bunch of Carnegie Tech media elites.  And in later years he was all mad, saying, “um, I said Skyrockets, none of this ‘Rocket’ garbage!”

Anyway, football.  Tigers are 1-0, just needing to add a 4 to get to 14-0.  #math.  Toledo lost at Florida 24-6 last week, so will lose at Mizzou 48-12 in week two.  #moremath.  Go Tigers, go tailgate.

Dear Ms. Vogt,

The job I would be best at is photographer.  I would be good at this b-
ecause My mom was a photographer.  So I have the blood in me.  I have an Ipad
and a Iphone that I take a lot of pictu-
res with.  I have experience with this job
because I have taken hundreds of pictur-
es in the past.

Your freind,
