Man, did I get jipped. I graduated from Wazzu in spring of '07. Since then, my alma mater has added a Panda Express to its on-campus dining center and approved the selling of alcohol at sporting events. Had these two things existed during my time in Pullman, I would be 20 pounds heavier and an alcoholic. Or dead. (Okay, so maybe it's a good thing I left before the orange chicken invasion.)
Next week Wazzu is bringing in Memphis hailing hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia to entertain its Cougs. The show, slated for Saturday, January 31, is already sold out. I'm bitter as hell.
I love Three 6 Mafia. The thought of drinking a cough syrup-Sprite-Jolly Rancher concoction makes my stomach turn. But I used to bump "Sippin' on Some Syrup" regardless. My freshman year roommate and I used to shout in unison, "We eat so many shrimp, I got iodine poisoning!" just for the hell of it. We did this at least a couple times a day, which others found funny/ annoying. (Mostly annoying.)
I've got to applaud the Student Entertainment Board for pulling this shit off. When I was in Pullman, our musical "treat" came courtesy of Rooney--the lame band whose claim to fame is that they sang an annoying song called "I'm Shakin'" on The O.C.
C'mon Three 6 Mafia! You guys are already going to be in the state. Can't you swing by Seattle, too?
