Paper bag awards
This year, instead of giving out stickers for awful performances, the Fan has decided to issue the 2010 Bag awards. Since the fans of terrible teams are the ones who suffer most, something nice should be done for them and nothing says sympathize more than giving a fan of a terrible team, a paper bag to wear at the game, right? Right. So this week winners are:
The Jayhawks of Kansas who got embarrassed by the Division II North Dakota State Bison and yes, that singular, apparently they all extinct except one. But one was enou adidas football boots gh to stuff the Jayhawks who could only manage one field goal against the powerhouse Bison, losing 6 3. Kansas gets bags for this, but the truth is, the Fan was going to ship some out anyway to punish them for their overly cute cartoon mascot and their incomprehensible cheers not to mention having their campus in a town named You guys are long overdue for bags.
The second bag allotment goes to Oxford, Mississippi, for the 17 people who are still planning to make the trip to New Orleans to watch the Tulane game this Saturday. Ole Miss has never looked older than they did this past Saturday against the Gamecocks of Jacksonville State, losing 49 48 in 2 overtimes. Not even Jeremiah Masoli offer to bre adidas football boots ak into the Jacksonville St. locker room and steal all their wallets could get the Rebels motivated to play hard in this game. But, not to worry Ole Miss fans, the Fan got you covered. We arrange adidas football boots d for a generous supply of bags to be delivered to Vaught Hemingway Stadium for every home game the rest of the season. You going to need them. (oh, and by the way, we just been notified that the logo above reflects the new nickname of the team).
Finally, the last bag award goes to LSU. Playing against an ACC opponent who only had its second and third string players available for the game (and 11 of those were walk ons for the basketball team) LSU was only able to win by 6. And that only because their safety held the UNC tight end so that he couldn adidas football boots catch the ball in the end zone on the last play of the game! We don want to hear the excuses. Be quiet and put the bags on that was embarrassing.
