"I didn’t want to tell you I’m like Billy Madison."
The Seahawks just drafted Wisconsin guard John Moffitt to their offensive line. And apparently he’s kind of funny.
The 24 year-old, on a conference call with reporters, was asked why he  was so old for his class. He responded that he spent a year in the Peace Corps, which of course peaked the interest of the reporters. But he couldn’t keep the charade going long and finally broke, saying,
"I’m kidding, I didn’t join the Peace Corps. I transferred high schools  and I repeated a year of high school. I didn’t want to tell you I’m like  Billy Madison. The Peace Corps thing sounds so much better, so if you  guys want to print that, feel free."
What a cutie.
You’re welcome, Seattle.

I know this is coming at you guys like four and a half months too late, but as they say, better late than never, right?

So on that note…

I just want to congratulate Packer Nation on the big Super Bowl win! We practiced really hard all season long and the payoff was huge. Nice work, people.

We did open the Packers at -3 and are accumulating money on them like snow in the U.P.

Brett Favre can once again help get the Green Bay Packers get into the playoffs. I’ll bet you thought you would never hear those words again.

Wisconsin Badger Herald Calls Out Student Scalpers
A student paper in Madison, Wis. publicly humiliated a handful of students who were scalping their Rose Bowl tickets for profit earlier this week. They called them out in order to make an example and discourage other students from doing the same.
But I’m not quite as surprised as the rest of the nation is. It’s fucking Madison - WISCONSIN - the Badgers. Badgers football is the pride and joy of Wisconsin’s college sports teams. Of course the locals were pissed!
Here’s an excerpt of the article , in case you can’t read the fine print above:
Truly, there is a special place in Hell for people who buy Rose Bowl  tickets with the sole intention of profiting from them. It is entirely  unfair to those who actually love this football team and were counting  on a cheap face value ticket in order to make the trip to Pasadena an  economic reality.
Daaaang!
Well, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from growing up in Wisconsin, it’s that you don’t come between a Wisconsinite and his or her football.
Case and point.
And you know what? I agree. Scalpers who buy tickets for the sole intent of turning a profit are like one step up from…I dunno, Al Qaeda? Seriously, I think it goes Al Qaeda, ticket scalpers, Hitler, and then those cops who write out parking tickets, followed by Dallas Cowboys fans, and so on.
I look forward to your emails, Cowboys fans.
But seriously - who do you think was more in the wrong here? The student scalpers for being dicks, or the newspaper for calling them out on it?

Brett [had] great years here in Green Bay, and any time a great competitor like that leaves, no one wants to see that, but they’ve done a great job of regrouping with Aaron Rodgers and I believe that Cleveland will do the same.
