Welcome to the Smoking Room: Wildcats Edition

Jonathan Daniel

Where we are all probably left in the cold staring at those rich aristocrats from Northwestern through the window, only wishing we had ourselves a fine Cuban and some of that 40 year old Scotch they've been bragging about.

Hello everyone. It seems like we're getting the hang of this whole smoking room thing, and while I am apparently awful at fact-checking things (Indiana does not - in fact - have 110,000 students on campus), we're still having all sorts of fun. That being said, we are hosting our good friends from Evanston today. Hopefully they can brag about the good food of Chicago, the bars off Michigan Avenue, the best place to get lobster, and where they send their butlers to get takeout.

Consider this the cultural open thread for the day. Maybe SpartanHT has a fruit-related rant about the Wildcats. I'd guess it would be the most insightful one yet.
