Hello to everyone here at Eleven Warriors. First, I would like to say that this site is aweso_e! I could go on but I digress. Second, this is _y first blog post and I hu_bly accept any tips and or criticis_s. Third, I _ay not be able to portray this hu_orous story in quite the way our fellow writer Ra_zy could, but I will do _y best to at least leave you with a expletive eating grin.
_y best friend Justin and I have known one another since we were 5. We went to the sa_e school, sa_e church, and had so_e unforgettable ti_es together. Whether it was _aking tents with sleeping blankets or playing basketball as _ichael Jordan and Scottie Pippen (I was always Jordan of course) we were inseparable. As we grew older college football became _ore relevant in our lives. _e, the fan of the great Ohio State Buckeyes. He, the fan of the evil tea_ up north. Every year for about 10 years his fa_ily and _ine had the annual cookout for The Ga_e. For the longest ti_e I never understood why he would be the fan of such a tea_. I later assu_ed it is because his father was. It is unfortunate, but so_ething I came to grips with after a few years of therapy during the John Cooper era.
A year after graduating high school we both joined the United States Air Force. I was off to Nevada and hi_ to New Jersey. We stay in contact as _uch as possible. When college football starts well, it all depends on how our team did that weekend. God forbid one of us call the other if our tea_ lost. Fro_ 2006-2007 I was based in South Korea. All was well until the BCSCG. I will not go into details, but we both were able to get so_e intense s_ack talk in that year.
If you are fa_iliar with South Korea (_ilitary or veteran) then you know they have blankets that you can have custo_ _ade. These blankets are quite the bargain too. For so_e reason I decided to oblige _y best friend, and yet hated rival, by buying hi_ a custo_ _ade TTUN blanket. I told hi_ that I would ship it to hi_ when I ca_e back to the states. Well, as ti_e passed I had realized I never shipped hi_ the blanket. Coincidentally, he had never asked for it either. By this ti_e we were both _arried with kids and a fa_ily dog. I had just bought a new doghouse and needed a blanket for her (Sienna) to sleep on. Well, wouldn't you know it I came across the TTUN blanket in the garage. Sienna see_ed to like it, in part to _y dis_ay, but she was co_fortable. The next day I got a call fro_ Justin. "Hey _an, I was just wondering if you still had that TTUN blanket you got for _e fro_ Korea. I co_pletely forgot about it!" I proceeded to tell hi_ that my dog was using it as a bed. In a barrage of words i will not soon repeat he expressed to _e his anger. He finally cal_ed down and I told hi_ I would wash it and send it to hi_. It was after all, in it's own way, infecting _y poor Sienna and probably giving her bad drea_s of wolverines chasing her about. In this instance I was doing everyone a favor. The next _orning I awoke to take Sienna outside. She rushed out of her doghouse like normal ready to play. But so_ething was different about her that _orning and I couldn't put _y finger on it. Later that day I was about to put Sienna back into her doghouse when I noticed so_ething odd yet pleasant. The TTUN logo, which was quite large i _ight add, was gone. It was ripped off and nowhere to be found. It was then I realized what had happened. Sienna had eaten it. She was known for eating pretty _uch anything she could get her jaws on, but this was shocking even to _e. It was confir_ed through the vet. A few days later Justin called _e again asking about the blanket. Naturally I boasted about the fact that _y dog had eaten the logo and left a big gaping whole in the _iddle of it. "I don't believe you!", he said. I tried frivolously to explain it to hi_, but it was no use. To this day he believes I had never bought the blanket at all. "The dog ate it huh?", he always says. No, the dog devoured the enemy and $hit the_ out! Go Buckeyes!!! O-H!!!
_eechigan Still SUCKS!!!
