[Bumped because it is double-barreled awesome.--OPS]
Alright, so Iowa is 5-4 and looking down the barrel of a loaded Nittany Lions squad this weekend. Yes it's a frightening proposition but I beseech you, Hawkeye brothers and sisters*, to never give up hope.
Remember the story in the bible about the little guy fighting the big guy……can’t think of their names, my knowledge of Christian fairy tales has really gone to shit over the years.
According to the Sacred Book of Fry it looked something like this:
The point is.....(spoiler alert) the little guy wins.
Looking back through American history, there are a number of epic battles where the underdog has come out on top. I cite as an example the Griswolds vs the Froegers (circa 1985). Although the Froegers were the clear favorite, an uncharacteristic slip-up in answering a question about the pyramidal tracts opened the door for an eventual Griswold victory. (Personally, I would have gone with Early Hungarian Cabinet Making. No one knows anything about Hungarians.) My point is that this goes to show that if a couple of breaks fall Iowa’s way, they’ve got a legitimate shot.
As we all know the breaks have not gone in Iowa's favor this year, but I've got two, nay, four words for anyone who has completely counted them out on Saturday.
Ivan motherfucking Drago, bitch.
