Before I get too deeply into what the title of this post is about, the #questforthediscopatch for Fall 2010 is coming to a close. I see a light at the end of this tunnel and I’m really hoping it’s not a train. Tomorrow I have my final for lecture and Tuesday my classmates and I will have one last pharmacology test and a critical on dosage calculations. All of this will, of course, determine whether or not I move on to next semester. I’m really hoping for few problems. I’ll be spending a lot of time studying and in my final clinicals for the semester too. I’m hoping the next time I post about school, I’ll be celebrating a break and getting ready for Spring.
Now, on to some non-school fun!
Thaddeus Setla is not only the genius producer of Chronicles of EMS and an appreciator of wines, he’s also a huge fan of the University of Michigan Wolverines. I am a huge Mississippi State University Bulldogs fan and our two teams are set to square off in the Gator Bowl on 1-1-11. Naturally, I saw the opportunity for a friendly wager. When I suggested to Ted that we come up with something, I was expecting something along the lines of “loser has to display the winner’s logo on their Twitter and Facebook profiles” but I was pleasantly surprised when he suggested a wager involving wine. So, here we are! I’ve warned Ted that I know very little about wine but he didn’t seem worried about that. Essentially: If Mississippi State (likely) wins, Ted’s going to send me some wine that he’s been holding on to for a little bit. If Michigan (unlikely) wins, I will send him a Zinfandel of my choice.
I wonder if he’ll accept a fine vintage from Mad Dog 20/20?
In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to this. The smack talk has already begun and I invite you to follow our banter on Twitter and Facebook as gameday approaches. I just hope Ted and the rest of his Wolverines are ready. A pissed off wolverine is a dangerous thing but a pissed off bulldog with 40K + ringing cowbells is going to be a big challenge. Plus, Michiganders are used to cold and snow this time of the year and Florida doesn’t normally have any snow. Seeing as MSU is a cow college, we’re used to grass and won’t question what the field is made out of and its intentions.
Let the games begin! Oh, and on behalf of the Bulldog Nation, I present this as a warning of what the Michigan faithful have to look forward to!
