In which I pick up the gauntlet

+

Since I am not an effet priss, I have a hard time contemplating the fact that there are some out there who are so picky that they would refuse to eat certain foods, especially ones as innocuous as tomatoes and mayonnaise. But, as always, the backwater burg of Syracuse is there to prove me wrong. To wit: the proprietor of Hoya Suxa has issued a challenge with the terms are as follows: should UConn defeat Syracuse on Wednesday, The, ahem, Glaude, will consume a sandwich consisting of just those ingredients, and has issued a challenge that I am happy to rise to. Since I have no gastronomic weakness, I can only offer this in response: In the unlikely event that the Syracuse Saltine Warriors Orange defeat UConn, not only will I dance to the tune of the Syracuse fight song, but I will do it with more style, grace and panache than Glaude did in his video. If the threat of seeing my dancing doesn't inspire UConn to win, then I don't know what will. Hate on.
