Trivial Update - Ralphie's Run

#ThursdaysRTrivial episode 62 is coming up right after this PSA: Buffalo dung is only biodegradable at 5280 feet.

#ThursdaysRTrivial episode 62 "Bison and Dressing, then Pumpkin Pie" It's the Twitter Twivia show that's never gasping for oxygen...well, except after @namaman eats too much bean dip. REPLY back your answer for a chance at a fabulous prize. The Colorado mascot first appeared in 1934 on Thanksgiving Day in a win over the University of Denver. How much did the students spend to rent the calf?

Remember Ralphie? The female behemoth that nearly trampled the hedges back in '06 before one of her cowgirl handlers slipped and fell to the turf...?

You can require more than one leash and up to 6 handlers with fake chaps, but that doesn't mean you can upstage a dog that rests his manhood on a bag of ice for a living. Bitch please! But one thing Ralphie does have over the world's greatest mascot is a couple decades. Just ask anyone you know from the 1934 class at the University of Denver.

Go ahead...ask...

And evidently Shan was part of that class, cuz he knew those crazy bison herders paid $25 to rent Killer's calf. And for that he gets my Friday bar bill at the Boulder Beer Company and a giftcard to Ted's Montana Grill where he can eat as many buffalo chips as his heart desires. Alan slogged across the finish line, so he picks up my toll bill from the trip and an authentic guitar case from a hippie in downtown Boulder.

Well done boys. You can wipe your feet off before you leave.

**ADDENDUM** Nama also tweeted in, real late. He gets an official Colorado Tree Hugger tandem bike.

There is just something about running a 100 yards next to an animal that weighs a half a ton or more, that doesn't seem particularly bright.
