This.

I didn't watch (most of) the game... that's probably a good thing - I have been jinxing games that I've watched/listened to for years now. When Mom texted me saying Mizzou scored to make the score 36-21, I switched over to the game to witness the long kickoff return. At least when I tuned in again at the end it was impossible for them to win.

While we're at it, the Yankees.
I do enjoy seeing them spend all that money and still lose.
(If I offended any NYY fans: I'm not really sorry, that was the intent)

Wayne Rooney.

If he wants to prove critics to the contrary, he can stop fooling around for the tabloids and score some friggin' goals for someone. I wouldn't mind if they were own goals. :P

Michigan State.

At least Mizzou's loss wasn't the most embarrassing of the day among erstwhile Top-10 teams.

It's not like, bad. It's just not as good as everyone thinks. I'd take Imo's over Shakespeare's anyday.

Provel Cheese

Also, Texas A&M. Looks like the Razorbacks (who might need to appear in this thread next week) will wind up giving them an unofficial 0-1 start to SEC play. :P
