It all started a few years ago on an NCAA Tournament thread. Buffalo Wild Wings commercials were shown in darn near every commercial break. So, at the start of every open thread from then to now, no matter the event, it has started with three comments.
That seemingly nonsensical pronouncement, to outsiders at least, at the beginning of every thread quickly became a favorite CougCenter tradition. Hell, it became so famous, students even brought signs to basketball games just proclaiming "BUFFALO! WILD! WINGS!", resulting in many bemused looks from fans and commentators alike.
Ever since, we've joked about a Buffalo Wild Wings opening in Pullman. Perhaps they were jokes that masked a serious desire for one to actually open but in our heart of hearts, we always knew it for the long shot it was. The dreams would have to remain just that: dreams.
Sometimes, though, dreams really do come true.
OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD! Lets go to President Elson S. Floyd for his reaction. Sir, which way do we need to go to get to Buffalo Wild Wings?
Right you are, sir! Anyone else wanna go? Oh, you do Klay? Get cleaned up first.
BE RIGHT BACK! IMMA CELEBRATE BEFORE WE GO!
It's really happening, you guys. Turns out my high school guidance counselors really do mean it when they tell you if you can dream it, you can do it.
Buffalo Wild Wings is opening in Pullman (Moscow). LET THIS BE A HAPPY DAY IN ALL OF COUGARDOM!
