My comment:

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)"

“Making sausage”

“can buy a lot of”

“Geppetto” and/or “Pinocchio”

“all those Cam Newtons”

“Carmelo Anthony”

“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"
"printing-and-publishing pooh-bah"

"stomped off with piggybank under arm"

 

Tally:

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.
