I can't wait for Bud's column on this tomorrow
If we are playing Bud Bingo… these are phrases that I what I want on my card somewhere (BTW, this pre-supposes that “Fannies” is not an option or is the equivalent of the middle square)"
“can buy a lot of”
“Geppetto” and/or “Pinocchio”
“all those Cam Newtons”
“middle infielders and lefty specialists making $5 million”
Just a hunch.
Bud's actual phrasing:
"hoo-ha""You’d pretty much have to go back to the days of Cleopatra to find something quite as opulent as those digs"
"signed on with a kind of devil" and "Not one sporting horns and a pitchfork"
"arms-race castle his nickel helped to erect"
"nurse their boo-boos"
"stomped off with piggybank under arm"
Bud wins. I was expecting him to go broader--more of an all-sports-money-influence column, but he stuck to college. He also decided to go with the Dr. Seuss vocabulary. Didn't see that coming. Also, the castle and Cleopatra were unanticipated.
