Not your usual 4&20 post

May Eastern Washington kick MSU’s butt.
It’s rare that I’ll root for an out-of-state team. Whether it’s the Griz, the Cats or even the Saints; I want Montana schools to win. I was really pulling for the Bobcats over EWU because if the Cats beat the Eagles, and then the Griz beat the Cats, the Griz have a better chance of making the playoffs. I also just like the Cats this year, especially running back and Frenchtown product Cody Kirk.
Then I watched the Steve Daines rollout for the 2014 U.S. Senate race. There was MSU QB DeNarius McGhee with his nose so far up Steve Daines’ derrière that he could peer out Daines’ belly button.
Perhaps McGhee believes he’ll be a millionaire NFL quarterback some day and that Daines will craft tax legislation allowing McGhee to keep all his earnings. Until then, McGhee better hope that none of his family or friends ever have to go on food stamps. Or ever need reasonably priced health insurance. Or (fill in the blank).
Granted, Griz QB Jordan Johnson isn’t problem-free but at least his mug isn’t on TV, stumping for a tea party candidate.
Now I’m no fan of Slokane’s home team: it skanked out a win over the Griz; and then there’s that obnoxious red playing field but today, Go Eagles.
