A few weeks ago, BHGP discovered that Buffalo Wild Wings was secretly broadcasting footage of Iowa's 2006 last-second NCAA tournament loss to Northwestern State as part of a commercial. As a result, we did what we always do: We launched a MANCOTT.
And then something funny happened: It caught fire on social media, and the days after the declaration of MANCOTT were some of the highest-traffic days BHGP has ever seen. It did not go unnoticed.
On Thursday, BHGP diplomats met with officials from Buffalo Wild Wings to resolve the standoff.
Let's cut to the chase. When was the last time Iowa made the NCAA Tournament?
OK, so how about we do this: We'll guarantee that every game Iowa plays in the NCAA Tournament will be on television at Buffalo Wild Wings. We'll have 22 different flavors of wings and 50 different beers available, and we'll do our best to make sure they're all available quickly the next time you guys suffer another soul-crushing loss.
And, just to make sure there's no hard feelings, we'll make a $10 PER TOUCHDOWN DONATION TO IOWA TOUCHDOWNS FOR KIDS FOR THE 2013 SEASON on behalf of the BHGP community.
And, with that, the Mancott comes to a close. Buffalo Wild Wings is donating $10 per touchdown for last season to University of Iowa Children's Hospital, and we're not going to turn down a chance to get our good friends $420 closer to building a hospital (speaking of which, you can always click the story and donate to the cause).
Thanks to Mike Hlas for noticing the commercial. Thanks to everyone who shared the story. And thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings, which showed a remarkable ability to take a joke.
And Thank God the Mancott is over. Those mango habs really are awesome.
