Fun Friday, Part 1

As a general rule, I like anything that compares The Simpsons to anything. Here, we have a nice rundown of every major college football team and the Simpsons' character that they most resemble. Wisconsin?

Wisconsin: Barney Gumble

Stout, hard-drinking, the life of every party -- yet even when things are going well, they're never very far from total collapse. (Also one of those great-minds-think-alike situations.)

Michigan State?

Michigan State: Gil the Salesman

All together now: "Damn, that felt like a Big 10 championship season!" It always begins the same with these guys, so hopeful, so full of promise, but they always manage to blow it sometime before the deal is closed. Since Gil is supposedly based on Jack Lemmon's sad-sack character from the film adaptation of "Glengarry Glen Ross," we have some advice for the Spartans: Coffee is for closers. (Thanks to ryno for the suggestion.)


Michigan: Kent Brockman

Huge television draws both, and because of that, you just can't quite get away from either the Wolverines or Brockman; they demand your attention. Yet neither is quite as relevant as they think. At least three losses in six straight seasons? Now, at the risk of being unpopular, this reporter places the blame for all of this squarely on YOU, the viewers.

There's much more.

(Hat tip, Mike)
