The "Blowout" Theory

I am the son of Washington State graduates. I met my wife in Pullman. Now, we have a 7 month old who, although he doesn't know it yet, will go to Washington State University. On game days, we have a simple routine. Whether it's a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, when I wake up, I put the Cougar Flag on the house and then I go down stairs to find a sleeping, crying or smiling baby. Regardless, on game day, his diaper is changed, his pajamas removed and in their place I dress him in a crimson Cougar onesie and gray pants. This is how he starts his day ... it's awesome. However, if you have children, you know that infants don't necessarily finish the day wearing the same clothes they started the day. And here we have the blowout theory.

Twice, my son has made it through the whole day wearing his Coug gear and on those days our mighty Cougars beat UNLV and Eastern Washington. Conversely, on the other two game days, he has completely blown out of his diaper and destroyed his Coug gear.

My theory is this ... my child and his "movements" can predict Cougar football game results. On this 5th Cougar gameday, at 12:57, after a morning of three bottles, one banana and some applesauce, his Coug gear is dry and Downy-fresh.

Prediction: Cougar victory ... odds, subject to change.
