>Bet the over for awkward pauses in conversation

Saturday’s Las Vegas Bowl will pit Arizona (7-5) versus BYU (10-2) in a clash of collegiate cultures, with the sun-drenched party culture of U of A going up against the Mormons and all their weird unsexy underwear and chaste do-goodery.  Big thanks to Every Day Should Be Saturday, which found this promotional photo of the team’s coaches; nothing quite says “awkward” like the BYU logo in the same photo as Vegas showgirls.

And, as if the idea of flocks of Mormons awkwardly looking at the floor as they walk through the lobbies of hotel/casinos isn’t wonderful enough: German icon, proud Wildcat dad, and hamburger enthusiast David Hasselhoff will sing the National Anthem before the game.

Hasselhoff, Mormons, and Vegas.  It blows my mind that this is an actual, real-life event, and not a TV pilot or the basis for an episode of CSI.  Seriously, a Mormon’s gonna end up dead just as Hoff walks off the field in an attention-grabbing cameo.  Then David Caruso shows up as an expert from Miami and says, “Looks like one saint just became more latter day than he wanted to be.” YEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
