Oh holy wow! I, like, totally forgot to blog about something totally awesome! Once again, one of the highlights of the football game was the halftime show. This week it was "Monty Python & the Holy Grail" for 8 minutes of halftime fun. From the giant foot (played by the band) crushing the dancers (played by the dancers) until Patsy 'galloping' along behind Drum Major Dennis Lee during the downfield "Victors," it was creative, funny, and extremely well done. The Black Knight's scratches and flesh wounds were emphasized by waving red banners, the dead were piled into the back of a field cart, and Sir Sparty answered these questions at the Bridge of Death: (sorry, MSU types, but this is funny.)
Bridgekeeper: No man shall cross the Bridge of Death until you answer me these questions three...unless you've won a Big Ten Grail in the past 15 years. Sir Badger, Sir Hobbitt, go ahead! (Just Sir Sparty remained at this point.) Whaaaat is your name?
Sir Sparty: Sir Sparty, the fair!
Bridgekeeper: Whaaat is your quest?
Sir Sparty: To win the Big Ten Grail!
Bridgekeeper: How do you blow a 17-point lead with six minutes to go?
Sir Sparty: Well, I, uh, I don't know that! (Sparty perishes.) posted at 1:58 PM - comments
