People say that college football is boring and doesn't have enough #drama. Well, those people clearly didn't watch the Minnesota vs TCU game last night.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers opened up their season by taking some extreme measures to make sure they came out on top against the No. 2-ranked Horned Frogs.

What was the team's secret? This very dramatic chipmunk.

Minnesota broadcast this classic meme on the jumbotron in an attempt to distract the TCU kicker during field goals.

Alas, Minnesota tried their sneaky chipmunk trick, but TCU ultimately came out on top with a 23-17 win.

Next game, Doge. Much football.

If you stepped outside your mid-January, Netflix-addled cave recently you probably heard something about Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, and his devastating botched attempt at taking home the W last weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. To put it lightly, it was an unanticipated moment of sheer unfettered insanity.


A 27-yard-attempt miss. Nobody saw that coming. Check out this absurd compilation of fan reactions from both ends of the spectrum:


Anyways following all that madness, a first-grade class wrote a collection of encourage letters to Blair Walsh to cheer the saddened soul up. He responded in pretty much the best and most gracious way possible by visiting the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minnesota.


The children passed along advice in their letters like, 'you are handsome,' and 'everyone makes mistakes sometimes. One time I made a mistake when I was doing a cartwheel.'


Cartwheels are tough as fu*k though, so totally understand on that account. Suffice to say, all parties involved were feeling seven kinds of thankful. Keep your head up Walsh!

Even though the student body voted to have their mascot be the Cougars, the Canyons School Board refused it on the grounds that it would be offensive to older women. Is this oversensitivity to slang words, or is the board being threatened by some Courtney Cox-wannabes?
