All of you at BHGP need to post an apology (and for that matter, as a Hawkeye fan, I need to apologize as well - I could have posted a diary sooner too).
Our men's wrestling team just won the national freaking championship. WE ARE NUMBER 1! No, I'm serious - no Marchifornication craziness. WE ACTUALLY ARE NUMBER 1.
I recognize, as does the blogging community as a whole from what I can tell, BHGP as THE Iowa Hawkeye fanblog. You guys are great, and funny as hell. BUT, given your status as THE Iowa Hawkeye fanblog, you should be pimping the fact that we just won the national championship proudly and in every damn post for about the next week.
Now, I realize that wrestling isn't on the same level in terms of "recognition" as football or basketball - but for christ's sake (yes that means you Jebus), it's OUR BEST FUCKING SPORT. It has been for the past 25 years! This is like the Canadians winning the gold medal in Hockey or the Brazilians winning the World Cup in Soccer and no one there giving a shit. OF COURSE THEY'D BE PARTYING!
Ultimately, think of what Brian over at Mgo would have posted had Michigan won the National Championship in Wrestling. There would be an homage, the obligatory rubbing of everyone else's nose in it, the insinuation of superiority - all the things we love about Brian. It would be well written and would have been up on Friday. He'd pimp a National Championship in Tiddlywinks if there was one, as long as it was Michigan that won it.
Again, I say. WE....WON....THE....NATIONAL....CHAMPIONSHIP.
Congrats Iowa Wrestling team. We're proud as hell of you, and keep up the good work. Please try to keep control of Brands before he meets Casey McMillan face to face and the world is destroyed while both those crazy bastards try to establish who is Alpha dog on the Iowa campus next year.
