It’s Egg Bowl week, and last year’s confrontation anticipated so much animosity that CLANGA and Ole Miss’ head politcos felt the need to issue a joint statement quieting the in-state rivalry from the get-go. “Please, don’t fight each other,” was the beg, and that didn’t persist on the field or in the stands.
This year, the game’s in Oxford, and Ole Miss doesn’t have a chancellor to advance strong warnings against fighting, yelling, boozing, and otherwise bad behavior. Dad stepped out for beer, and he’ll be right back.
There’s little probability that Ole Miss pulls off a win this year, even in Oxford. CLANGA is favored by double digits, and the Rebel defense can’t defend shit. Just gaze upon your deep-fried turkey, your baked mac-n-cheese, your baked green-bean-casserole, your gravy and stuffing, and feel content.
This game may not go so well, but please let dinner shine for everyone present.
