Spanning the Empire: Your Granddaddy of Them All Open Thread

It's Wisconsin! It's Oregon! It's the Rose Bowl! It doesn't get better than this.



So, I didn't grow up watching a lot of college football. The NFL ruled in my house and neighborhood. But every New Year's Day, my Dad would get some port wine cheese spread, assorted crackers, and a summer sausage, and we would sit and watch the Rose Bowl together. We dutifully rooted for the Big Ten side, even as they lost more often than not. Time has marched on, but there is port wine cheese spread in my fridge for my family as we watch the Badgers this afternoon. My drink of choice? A crisp riesling. On Wisconsin!

If you're new here, welcome. We've only got a couple rules, so consider this our legal disclaimer. We have a pretty hefty legal department here at OTE, so don't cross us on this: No racism, sexism, homophobia, pornography, personal attacks, politics, religion, or illegal Internet streams of any games.
