Paul Bunyan's What, Brad Nessler?

Saturday, November 15, 2008

A hilarious exchange took place during the UNC-MD game this evening. As Brad Nessler was talking about the Minnesota-Wisconsin game he tried to mention the trophy that both teams play for in the rivalry, Paul Bunyan's Axe. Nessler, however, called it something else and Bob Griese was there to question him....

Pretty sure that was a Paul Bunyan's "Ass" that Nessler said the Gophers and Badgers were playing for. He tried to save it there, but I don't think he quite did. Too funny.

Nessler is still traumatized from seeing Paul Maguire's ass.

And Terry Gannon said during Minnesota-Wisconsin "Everyone wants a piece of that axe."

Yay, I can see the video now. I had to re-start my CPU but I got it now. Stupid Vista.

As far as the video goes, it sounded like he said "assxe". Nonetheless, hilarious.

I didn't notice until the 4th quarter that Maguire wasn't calling the game. Anybody know why he wasn't there? Just curious.

Based on other comments readers postted on Saturday, this was one memorable game. What could have been on the minds of the announcers from this game when there's references to asses, axes, balls and wet balls? Good stuff!!

But seriously, when is the game for Paul Bunyan's ass?

Yeah this game was very enjoyable, especially as a Maryland fan... Nessler and Griese were on fire all night, kept the game interesting when neither team could score in the 2nd half.

You shoulda seen the Pammy Chronicles pages this week. There was so much multiple entandres after the Nessler/griese axe comments, we even thought about a XXX rating.

Griese's high-pitched whiny voice has always bugged me, but I laughed when he twice said 'I thought you said ASS!' It was like he was channeling Beavis and Butthead meet Don Knotts/Barney Fife.

Nessler and Griese had the night of their lives last night. And I believe that Wisconsin won Paul Bunyan's ass, er, axe.

This is proof positive that Maguire is only holding those two back from becoming the premier duo in college football.

Keep it coming Brad & Bob.
