    "When you hear the “Here comes Ralphie” and everything like that, everything goes out and your just focusing on the run. It’s literally the biggest adrenaline rush I’ve ever had in my life.”

    Really great national article on yahoo. Talks about what it's like to be a Ralphie Handler and includes both a big photo gallery and a kickass video.

    Blackout is quite a bit more photogenic than Rowdy was. Seems to be more chill around the public too.

    does anyone have the show that Fox Sports did on her right around the time we were changing over to Ralphie V? I talked more about the history and showed has fast 5 was when she was young.

    I should've heeded your warning. Ugh...complaining how Ralphie is treated...really? She lives like a queen.

    "Prodded to run" "Forced to perform"

    Right. They have no idea that if Ralphie doesn't want to run, she doesn't.

    Yup. And she has exercised that right whenever she feels like it.

    I still remember when Ralphie IV was in heat for the nubs game and refused to run. That was a bad omen. And yes, V is much faster than IV. I have a feeling that V will outlast III in terms of tenure unless they decide to retire her early.

    apparently it was called "The History of Ralphie" and is no longer for sale anywhere. Did anyone here buy it?

    Does anybody know why we don't have the blanket on her with "GO BUFFS" on one side and "BEAT *INSERT TEAM NAME HERE*" on the other?

    My guess is peta, but that's not based on anything other than prejudiced speculation.

    Maybe Blackout gets feisty when its on.

    Or they just don't have any made for the Pac-12.

    I'm glad they don't put the blanket on her anymore. It looked cheesy IMO.
