No Rose Bowl


It was a classic battle.
Back and forth.
Toe to toe.
A true heavyweight fight.
No one deserved to lose,
but in the end
it wouldn't be Roses for beloved Beavers.

This is a Sunday 160.
Take the 160 Challenge if you dare.

But better yet, Challenge yourself to post the best comment. There may even be a prize!

I am not up for the challenge. You and Brian are masters and I am an amateur. Fantastic post but those poor Beavers. :(

Lou said...

Matty said...

He was right. No one deserved to lose. But, in reality, no one did. For when the final seconds ticked away, the scorekeeper found his err. Too many minutes.

I had to read the comments to realize you were talking about a stupid football game. My mind went completely different in its direction.

I'm the world's biggest beaver fan. I'm still mad about the civil war. LOVED the black rose pic :)
I'll settle for the Vegas Bowl, it will still be a good game. And for the ducks, I still haven't decided if I can bring myself to root for them. Its so hard to switch gears and suddenly *cough* root for them. Hmmmmmmm...
