Earlier today, Minnesota's mascot Goldy The Gopher tweeted at FauxPelini asking about a friendly wager between them. The result is a wonderful new Big Ten trophy worthy of our admiration.
The entire conversation is below.
Now all we need to do is find a chair manufacturer to sponsor it. That should take all of about a day.
Hey @FauxPelini, how about a friendly wager for this weekend's game? Team that gets the most points gets a conference win? Seem fair?— Goldy Gopher (@GoldytheGopher) November 20, 2014
@GoldytheGopher OK how about if we win you give me $5, if you win I get to smash a wooden chair over your back— Fake Bo Pelini (@FauxPelini) November 20, 2014
.@FauxPelini just as long as we can turn that $5 or bits of broken chair into a trophy for next year's game— Goldy Gopher (@GoldytheGopher) November 20, 2014
It has become a real thing, a real thing that exists in the real world!!!
