    Each time Baylor put points on the board, a green 4x4 ATV w/ trailor rig that resembles a wood chipper drove on to the field ringing a bell and blairing a train horn.

    This "fart-wagon" has as much appeal as being stuck in traffic at a RR crossing. Watching able-body college kids tool around the playing field on this red-neck spirit zamboni couldn't be more PATHETIC.

    Too bad CU didn't pitch a shut-out because every Baylor score reminded me of a commercial for Pepto Bismol. Head ache, stuffy nose, upset stomach, diarhea! Ahh-OOOO-gah!!

    Vehicles on the field = injured kids. I doubt that's the symbol BU had in mind when they went with the fart-wagon, but not a bad metaphore for their football program yesterday.

    A bunch of my friends went to the last CU-Baylor game in Waco when we lost.

    I never thought in my wildest dreams that any team beating CU would rush the field over beating us, but the Baylor fans did it. The Baylor fans slowly crept up to the goalpost; only one extremely overweight security guard standing in their way.

    They walked a few laps with the goalposts in tow until they decided to take it out of the stadium. The way out of the stadium is a little less wide than the goalposts are, so it took some math to figure out how to do it. Needless to say, I saw 2 students fall off of railings trying to turn the goalposts diagonal to get them out of the stadium, it was kinda scary.

    I also blame our crew for the loss to Baylor that year. Being the Boulder heathens we are, we laughed at the benediction at the beginning of the game.

    "Lord, bless these teams and God bless Big 12 football."

    I'm never laughing at a baptist benediction again.

    Honestly. In the 4th Quarter, when I closed my eyes and listened to the the bell and the fog horn, I couldn't help but imagine Captain Hazelwood attempting to steer the Exxon Valdez out of Prince William Sound. What a disaster!

    The last time the BU fog horn went off, I sang the Sponge Bob Square Pants theme song at the top of my lungs as a measure to relieve the pain. Waterboarding would have been more pleasant. If Guantanamo is ever closed down, just ship the enemy-combatants to Floyd Casey stadium for an extraordinary rendition of the BLAT and bell. It's just a stones throw away from the Crawford Whitehouse. Maybe that would be a program our President could oversee in his retirement.

    If BU football dropped the fog horn, maybe the team would have less of a Pavlovian deterrent from scoreing. Maybe they could sell tickets to the South Endzone bleacher seats that are hidden under the 'Bear Country" tarp. Maybe if they ditch the fart waggon, Baylor could be contenders.

    RU ready kids? Aye, aye captain. Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? ....

    Very theraputic.
    Thank you 96 and everyone for helping purge the BU fart wagon from my memory.
    Now on to Kansas State. Anyone know the lyrics to Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

    Suppose we built this large, wooden badger....

    As a Baylor guy, it warms the heart to see that the impression I feared the bell/horn smoker gave to visitors DOES in fact fall in line with my own concerns. It's the worst example of "me, too" I've ever seen. Our little boys were jealous of seeing a Ralphie raced across the field, a Peruna run from one side to the other, the Sooner Spooner (sic) rolled out there and perhaps all the horsies that Tech, USC & Fla State have......so they came up with an ATV and a retired meat smoker to which they could attach a foghorn and a bell. It USED to be a foghorn until somebody spilled a drink in it, and it USED to merely sit over in the end zone.

    Anyway, this is the first year that our powers that flee decided to display our symbols of irrelevance and inadequacy on the field through the use of the ATV...and it has NOT met with any degree of acceptance. I believe the horn is being discontinued, and the puny little vehicle that drove it onto the field will be retired. We'll find out at the Texas game in another week. Since there will be more orange in the stands that day than green or gold, the laughter would probably help our folks make the decision.....you HOPE so, anyway.

    Keep rollin', buffs.
