Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Poultry
Michigan isn't playing anybody of significance, certainly nobody that might sue people who call them names, so rather than make this post all about Michigan's next opponent, I'm going to talk about chickens. You know, those barnyard animals that go "Cuh-cuh-CAH! Cuh-cuh CAH!" or "Coo coo cuh CHAH!" or "Cha chee chah" or "Ah coodle doodle doo!" or whatever.
I hate chickens. For one week of a teenage summer I worked on a farm—one of the more elaborate lessons my father came up for when I whined about how rough suburban American life was—and the first job they gave me was to get up at 4:00 a.m. and collect the eggs from the chicken pen. I groggily went in there, found four eggs, left them in the kitchen and went back to bed. Soon after I was woken and informed there should be at least 12 in there—it's just that the hens hide them, mostly in their own poop. Now that the chickens were more awake (I wasn't) they terrorized my second egg-collecting attempt. You'd think I was stealing their babies or something. Want to convert a vegetarian back to meat? Have them meet a chicken. Nasty little creatures!
Anyway, that story and no other reason was the genesis of this limited edition MGoShirt, which we are going to MGo-pull from the MGoStore after today.
How this works again:
- I put up a winnable prize that consists of a desirable good.
- You guess the final scores of this weekend's designated game (football or hoops, depending on the season), and put it in the comments. First person to post a particular score has it.
- If you got it right, we contact you. If not, go to (5)
- The desirable good arrives at the address you give us.
- Non-winners can acquire the same desirable good by trading currency for it.
This Week's Game:
Michigan vs Whoever we're playing this week in football.
And on the Line…
If you can read this you don’t need glasses:
One entry per user. First user to choose a set of scores wins, determined by the timestamp of your entry (for my ease I prefer if you don't post it as a reply to another person's score--if you do it won't help or hurt you). If nobody gets the score, this week's prize carries over to the following week's. Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game (since I won't have time to pull them on gamedays). MGoEmployees and Moderators--anyone else with moderator privileges--are exempt from winning because you could change your timestamp. If you choose the score that Brian published in the official preview and it actually ends up the final score, well, that would be pretty amazing because Brian picks scores like 29-11 all the time. We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves. The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.This is not the algorithm. This is close.
M - 42, ND - 35
34-31 Michigan, and Notre Dame misses two field goals
14-10 good guys.
I'm so late I'll have to go with something crazy.
41-13 Go Blue
16 Notre Dame
Michigan will win 42 - 17. It will be glorious.
Michigan 27-26 Notre Dame
Notre Dame 31 - Michigan 20
Hopefully not this close...
Both offenses will struggle a bit.
Go Blue! Stomp the Chicken Fig Things!
(michigan gets a safety, one short fieldgoal, and a return touchdown)
Notre dame goes for two and doesn't get it....
I like to be specific.
Michigan wins 47-21 for a nice historical beatdown.
A thumping in the big house.
Thank God I can't get neg-banged for this:
ND - 38
Michigan - 24
This is still a very young team for Michigan. Lot's of growing pains still unfortunately. Brian Kelly may be an a-hole, but he's a good coach.
Wolverines feast on chickens as they are soon being taken off the menu, 34-10.
MIchigan 13 ND 9
Noooooooorfleet of feet gets his 1st return for a TD. Rees tosses 3 INTs and Kellys head explodes but only sprays blood regionally.
Mich - 34 ND - 20
24-21 Fig Things
Didnt feel like checking every guess, so hope this isnt taken
Michigan 19, Notre Dame 5
One blown coverage late spoils the shutout.
Probably already been guessed, but 27-23 Michigan
Beat those Fig Things!
23-16 Michigan, just like the HISTORIC record in the game. Oh, and 1 idiot in BK.
Fig Things 20
wooo double post. still, fuck notre dame.
michigan 41-3 because fuck notre dame.
27-10 U of M wins
