Numerous Washington State University Cougar fans are not happy at the prospect of taxpayers shelling out $150 million to help build a new stadium for arch-rival University of Washington, according to serious Cougar fan and Tri-City Herald reporter Chris Mulick.
To get a feel for the vitriol, turn to, well, www.huskiessuck.com. With a picture of a ragged man, hands clasped, slumped near a sign reading “Why lie, I need $150m”, the faux news story reads:
Cash-Strapped Billionaires Beg for $150M from Taxpayers
Times are harder over at Montlake than previously thought, as evidenced by the University of Washington begging the State Legislature to allocate $150M toward a new Husky Stadium despite an alumni fund consisting of over $2.2 billion in funds….
Analysis reveals that the Huskies have been scraping by with little more than a diet of ramen noodles and toast, as is demonstrated by their feeble and apparently undernourished athletic programs of the last several years.
