Now, we are in the thick of it! Sweet 16! Bak Bak Regional. This is hot, people. Here is the bracket, so you can keep track of ALL the action! Read the information behind the fold and then vote in the poll in this hotly contested matchup, Dumpster Muffin (2) v. Pain Train (Toot Toot!) (6).
Pain Train. Oh, the Pain Train. Haven't you done enough damage on the football field? Well, now is your chance to do something truly great. Mr. Follett, tear down that Dumpster Muffin!
But before he can attain true glory, he must go straight through Dumpster Muffin. She squashed Rec'd last time out (same link as Mustache of Karl Dorrell above). Now, she takes on the Unstoppable Force. Can the Uncleanable Object defeat that? Let's find out!
Dumpster Muffin (2)
Saint Dumpster Muffin was an inspiration to us everywhere. She took time out of her busy life of doing, apparently, absolutely nothing to spend months, if not a year or so, to live in a tree. And not just ANY tree, but that sacred ancient Indian burial ground next to the stadium. Where they buried Pocahontas, Geronimo, and Kal Penn.
Dumpster Muffin was one of the tree-sitters. And what a tree sitter she was! I met her here and interviewed her.
Here she is communing with the nature:
Here she is concerned about some murders on the Kent State campus:
And here she is in her God Pod:
I can't even really fully explain all that is Saint Dumpster Muffin in this space. Here she is complaining about stuff:
Dumpster Muffin came to represent everything wrong with the movement. She along with Ayr and Runnie Dub were some of the more well-known tree-sitters and received much ire from us. It turns out her real name is Amanda Tierney and she had some outstanding warrants in Santa Cruz County. Wonder what she is up to now.
Pain Train (6)
The Pain Train did not come from either CGB; in fact, for those of us too young to remember (ahem, rollonubears!), the Pain Train first appeared in a 2003 Super Bowl commercial featuring Terry Tate, Office Linebacker:
Clearly that commercial left an impression on our future Golden Ziger, Zack Follett.
"Terry Tate -- number 56, the Office Linebacker, the Pain Train -- was my hero from watching those commercials," Follett said. "I try to emulate him when I'm out there.
"When I was in junior high my buddy Marcus Moore and I went to a sporting goods store that sold a Reebok Terry Tate jersey. I bought one immediately. We watched all of his You Tube clips. He was bringing the Pain Train and he had his Woo-woo sound. I used to do it in high school, I used to blow the horn...it kind of stuck with me a little bit."
So vote for the Pain Train. After all, you don't want this to happen to you, do you?
