HOT COUGAR ACTION: Recaps And A Caption Contest

Well, that game was not very enjoyable. I don't have much of a desire to write anything about it beyond what I wrote last night. If you'd like to read more than that, you can start with official stats then work your way to the recaps after the jump. While the end result wasn't what everyone was hoping for, the game wasn't a total loss. It did provide a few interesting photos, including the picture for today's caption contest.



Have at it.
