Brothers' Bowl Banter

On the final day of 2009, Billy Ground Hog and his brother Woody reunited at the bank. Woody has been living at Miss Amy's house for about a month now. He is extremely happy there with his new adopted brothers Charlie and Squeakers, but occasionally Woody longs to hang out with his Ohio brother, Billy Ground Hog.

Since Billy Ground Hog has lived at my house for about 2 years now, he has converted to become a Penn State fan. Woody, of course, is a diehard Ohio State fan. The brothers are both very football oriented, so they are extremely excited about their respective school's New Year's Day bowl game. Penn State will be playing LSU in the Capital One Bowl, and Ohio State will face Oregon in the granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl.

Woody showed his spirit by making this sign to root for his team.

When Woody stepped away for a moment, Billy Ground Hog put a little post it note over the Ohio on Woody's sign.

Woody pondered for a moment, and then slightly lowered Billy Ground Hog's post it note.
"See, we can root for both teams with one sign!" he told his Nittany Lion fan brother. Woody is considering a future as a foreign diplomat when he grows up one day.

Here's to victories for OSU, PSU and all the other Big Ten teams!

Hi, Big Monkey!

We hope your OSU team plays better than Uncle Phil's OSU team.

Love, Noah

Hi Noah,

Normally I don't root for Ohio State, since they are a rival of Penn State's. When it's bowl season though, I want all of our Big Ten rivals to do well in their games because it makes our conference stronger.
