MORMONS GO WILD IN VEGAS

By / 12.22.06

In yet another bowl game I didn't particularly care about, the newly helmeted Ducks of Oregon got their asses thrashed by the BYU — what the heck is BYU's nickname? I'll make one up — Missionaries 38-8 in the Las Vegas Bowl. As always, Every Day Should Be Saturday has the best take on all things college football:

A bowl sponsored by a flat-screen television just begs for one team to come out in similar fashion: flat, overpriced, and showing it all in crystalline clarity. Oregon did just that last night in the Pioneer Purevision Las Vegas Bowl, losing 38-8 to a clearly furious BYU team. Mormons, despite what you might hear, are not nice: they vented a missionary’s rage on [Oregon]… whipping the Ducks into a smooth, even confit by halftime and snacking on the remainders for the whole of the second half.

Newspaper columnists, take note: that's how you write a lede. 

Can't say I've got much to add in the joke department. Ugly helmets, Ryan Leaf's younger brother… none of it really stacks up after good confit joke. 

(Oh, right: the Cougars. I've attached a picture that should keep me from forgetting that one again. Mmmm… Julie Cooper-Nichol.)
