It's the reason we watch games that we have no vested interest in. The threat of the upset.
This weekend, like many in March Madness, had a lot of upsets. Kansas: done. New Mexico: done. I really don't have any sympathy when people are all 'WAH WAH WAH MY BRACKET'S FUCKED!' Suck shit you whiner. This happens every year. Your bracket was not perfect last year. It won't be perfect next year. Shut the fuck up.
So for today's Shit Storm, I want to know your favorite upset in history. Which one was the most poignant to you? What about the most impressive? The most shocking? Lay it on me.
For me, the answer is quite simple. You see, I'm a bit of a Longhorn homer. All throughout 2005, Texas had to run the fucking gauntlet while the worldwide follower heaped giant stinking piles of fellatio on USC. The weeks leading up to the game, the same media outlet crammed down our throats the concept that this was the greatest college football team of all time.
They even got to play a home game for the National Championship. How wack is that? But Icehouse was there. I was one of the few in burnt orange that knew that you have to play the football game to win the football game. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Greatest all-time upset. Shit Storm go.
