I was talking to the old man (class of 69) today, he is drooling over Syracuse. He hates Syracuse.
I met my fraternity brothers fiancée, she told me that she went to Syracuse, I snorted, and spit on the ground. She wasn’t surprised, the folks at Syracuse hate Penn State too, but she asked me to explain what it was all about.
So I tried…
“You see….uh…. Ben Schwartzwalder… umm… Archibold Stadium…ahhhh…Rip Engle… uhh… Syracuse sucks.”
I checked the score today, Syracuse lost to Akron by three touchdowns...at home. Not to mention the ass kicking Northwestern gave them last week.
The old man insists that Joe Paterno hates Syracuse, even more than Pitt, and that we’ll run the score up next week. I don’t know that it makes any sense, but I’m all for a good sold ass kicking next week.
You know, just for old times' sake.
