Top 10 Things I LOVE About Being a Coug

Happy Valentine's Day, Cougs.

One of the great - and truly ironic - things about marriage is that the longer you're married, the less effort you have to put into Valentine's Day. It's even better when you add kids to the mix because your focus becomes more on them than yourselves. Mrs. McBoob and I made a deal several years ago that there would be no gifts exchanged between us; and romantic Valentine's dinners for two are a thing of the past, since Mini McBoob arrived seven years ago.

Now, I'm not so naive to believe that just because we agreed on no gifts, that it actually means I'm completely in the clear; so I always get the Missus a card and a little something. This year it was a picture frame with some cute pics of the kids. In years past, this would have easily one-upped the homemade card my wife makes me and I go to bed happy, knowing that I've earned some valuable points in this ongoing game called marriage. The good news/bad news this year is that she one-upped ME, by getting me Tiger Woods Golf for the Wii. How dare she! Now I'm stuck with the task of trying to figure out how to at least get back to even. There's no chance of getting flowers delivered at the last minute so I'll probably cook a nice dinner, shave my back and warm up her side of the bed. Hopefully that works. Wish me luck.

Anyway, in honor of the holiday men LOVE to hate, here are the top 10 reasons I LOVE being a Coug:

10. Pullman bars do not know the meaning of the term "over-served".
10A. Even Arby's serves beer in Pullman.

9. Snow on gameday ensures a Cougar victory.

8. Leaving your legacy does not require a $2.5 million gift to the school. A $2.50 Sharpie and a trip to the Coug is all you need.

7. Christmas bonus and vacation time can be spent on the family instead of expensive trips to bowl games.

6. Bledsoe to Bobo; Leaf to Jackson; Brink to Gibson.

5. The Mayor, Glenn Johnson and Unbiased Bob Robertson. Football never sounded so good.

4. Nothing beats a hangover like a Cougar Country Drive-In Super Basket, Mt Dew and about 18 cups of fry sauce.

3. Trips to Pullman in October and November include pheasant hunting and/or steelhead fishing.

2. Drinking and swearing don't get you kicked out of the 'Family Section'.

1. Beating the Cougs will NEVER feel as good as it does when we beat you.

Go Cougs!

Nice job Hoot. Tiger for the Wii? That actually kind of sucks because now you have to do SOMETHING for her. The wife and I have long buried Valentine's day and you got it, having the kids in play takes away the attention from what a stupid holiday it really is. We don't even get cards for each other, because "every day is Valentine's day honey!" :)

Mmm, honey. Anyone ever see that Jessica Alba masterpiece where she played the hip-hop-ho called Honey? As John Lovitz's Master Thespian would say, "ACTING!"

Nice call on CCDI. But what about open to close? What about fish bowls, or calzone's at Sella's? What about Pizza Answer/Pizza Pipeline? What about making poops drive you to the Plant? Or absolutely destroying the kitchen and making Janet cry? Somehow you lost your way. FOR SHAME.

Oh, and Medina booster? Beat us in something, then pop off, mm-kay? You do realize you are 1-9 in your last 10 football/hoops games against us...right? didn't think so. Go back to the UW blog and rave about Paint Dry, or how you never wanted Mora anyway.

Uh, hawk, I don't know what you are talking about. We NEVER hazed any poopies...well, at least until big B rush was over.

Nice CB-4 reference by-the-way, Rooster did you catch that?

Straigh outa low-cash, indeed.

One of my favorite things about the Cougs is baing able to dash off to Shakers for tequilla shots at halftime of football games, and not miss a single snap. Even friends i brought who were rooting for the other team thought that was pretty spectacular.

I assume that's just because you already drained the fifth that you snuck into the game?

Is there such a thing as a CB-4 reference? You drug me to that movie when it came out Poux. It was lame then and still is today.
Happy Valentine's Cougs. Typical V-Day for the ATL Coug holding down the South East. Tapped the wife, had a few beers, watched the cougs beat OSU. 2 out of the 3 was great.

Unfortunately Arbys no longer serves beer, but Taco Del Mar does!
