This weekend's game between TCU and Boise State was supposed to be in Fort Worth...until the Boise State administration went and cried to the Mountain West this summer, claiming that the game should be in Boise since TCU is leaving the conference. That's petty and childish enough already, but now Boise State themselves have eyes to leave the MWC. Like Joe Paterno, I think they knew about this the whole time. You sneaky, sneaky, jean shorts-wearing smurfs!
To combat this, Spit Blood proposes hitting Idaho where it hurts- by boycotting potatoes for the week! You may not know it, but outside of tacky, synthetic blue turf, potatoes are Idaho's #1 cash crop. Roughly 50% of the state's population is employed in the potato industry, and Boise State offers several potato-related majors. Kellen Moore, the Broncos' 5th year senior quarterback, is actually working on his Master's degree in French-Fry Basket Shaking after having already completed his Bachelor's degree in Mouth-Breathing.
So if you had plans to make baked potatoes one night this week, scrap them. If you were going to make potato pancakes, stop being weird and just make normal ones. Instead of fries, eat something that isn't going to act like a knife straight to the valves of your heart.
Give up potatoes for one week, and who knows what me might accomplish. If we can keep just one Idaho family from having a Happy Thanksgiving, this will be a success.
GO FROGS! NO POTATOES!
