At some point last night,
greatest ESPN personality ever Kirk Herbstreit said, “That’s why they are Michigan State.”
Well, this is why they’re Michigan State and our guys are Notre Dame…
East Lansing radio reporters stated that, immediately following the game, John Elsmith had 3-4 players protect that national icon of all that is good about life, the Michigan State “S.”
But wait!Â Where were the Notre Dame football players? Why aren’t they confronting these men of honor? Where could they be?Â Searching for a suitable flag to plant upon said “S?”Â No.Â They were too busy celebrating the win with their fans, singing the Alma Mater.
I’d been dying for an absolute slaughter of Michigan State all week.Â And when John Elsmith mentioned that his only problem with the “flag planting” incident was that they missed the 50 yard line, I was hoping the sky would open up and God himself would zap, not kill, but zap him.
And as the game progressed, and it looked more and more unlikely that we’d not have our vengeance and that the ND players had not come to East Lansing to provide a righteous and biblical beat down of Sparty, I was truly disappointed.Â Where was our revenge?Â Where was our justice?
But then, in the form of 19 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, lighting did strike. And fury did beat down upon the hearts and minds of the Spartans.Â And it was beautiful.Â When all hope for ND was lost, that’s when that bitch, Karma, snapped up and bit Sparty in the ass.Â Revenge truly is a dish best served cold.
Hey MSU, you stay classy.Â And try not to have your annual melt-down.Â We’d like a “quality win” here.
Oh, and one other thing, keep the megaphone.Â If we keep having these “rivalry trophies” for every 2-bit team, then it’ll just diminish the importance of our one true rivalry.Â Keep the megaphone as a nice souvenir.Â You know, like a commemorative spoon from that trip you took to Myrtle Beach that year.Â Wasn’t that a nice time?
