"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
So, my 12 year-old son enjoys the Muppet victories as much as I do. he asked me today, "Would an Iowa victory get Muppets?" My response - I don't know. They are clearly not a blood rival, but they are ranked #12 and may well be the best ream we've played against so far. So, we decided to ask the MGoBlog community:
Would a road victory at #12 Iowa be Muppet-worthy? Discuss.
Where are the muppets damn it? Not necissarily for beating Western--but this is not your father's Western. They're going to win some games this year. At the same time, until yesterday there was serious concern that this was not going to be your father's Michigan. I want muppets for having a legitimate division 1 quarterback! Tate Forcier looked like a veteran out there.
I'll agree that normally destroying Western would not be a cause for this much celebration, and in the future it wont be, but damn it, it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
I worry for my television when Tate comes out of the game next week though. I may have to bolt a few things down to prevent their projectile utilization. As bad as OSU looked though...this conference is wide freaking open. And Michigan isn't coming to the gunfight with a butter knife anymore.
how good will our offense look?
is a win over wmu worthy of muppets?
will we finally win a season opener?
So in a fit of thought I was struck that certain traditions have spring up here in the mgoblog-iverse, mostly relating to multimedia files and their relation to events. These relations and responses sprung up organically and now have taken root as a quasi rule of law, much like the development of English common law:
- The Muppets Temptation and Hawaiian War Chant have now been enshrined as being the sole and legitimate celebratory response to big wins for our boys/ladies in maize & blue.
- Coaching searches are accompanied by real time flight tracking graphics
- and of course, whenever Tater appears, dex will follow with all innocent posters relegated to ashes of dust in the subsequent flaming
So I pose the question, what other multimedia events / automatic responses are cued by events in the real world? What is the proper protocol for a replaying of the "Peanut Butter Jelly" song? Will Brian as our Dear Leader need to issue proclamations? Will a coalition of posters, diaryists, and fellow bloggers force Brian to accede to a Magna Carta of sorts ensuring the proper use and distribution of T Lehman flag tie photos? I ask so as to be educated in the political thought of the mgoblog world and not be sent to the beheading station to have my innards spilt amongst mcfarlain's remains.....
Obviously, I expect a rousing diatribe on Marxist-Leninist thought by the WLA, but outright Marxism is soooo 2007... or is it?
