Waco High Lions & Brandon Dean Price

Dearest Readers:

We have obtained authorization from our Angolan overlords for one brief Saturday post. They have already restricted our whiskey lunches and sausage consumption by 50%, which they claim is a necessary wartime measure. Apparently Angola is at war. Regardless, as we adjust to the new power dynamic and strict dress code in the BearMeat Editorial Offices on the 13th Floor of the ALICO building, our thoughts have strayed from the Angolan struggle against global capitalist exploitation.

Let this brief post serve a two-fold purpose: 1) To herald the success of the Waco High Lions as they enter the TX State Championship Game next weekend!; and 2) To celebrate Brandon Dean Price, our most dedicated reader, who deserves recognition for his interactive approach to our blog.

1) Waco High Lions. For every setback that we experience in Waco, Texas, there is always a silver lining. This year, our very own Waco High Lions have gracefully demolished the opposition and are poised to restore the pride to our fair city where the Bears so miserably failed. Though the editorial board has squandered their majority shares of the blog on the B's bowl chances, we have gone "double or nothing" with our Angolan masters on Waco High's chances of bringing the trophy back to McLennan County. Now the Lions just have to cover the spread . . .

2) Brandon Dean Price. BDP, if you're reading this, and we know you are, then we want to extend our heartfelt thanks for your continued support of BearMeat. You have been courted by many blogs and have a sordid history, but we love you no matter what the others say. In your honor, we are inaugurating the Brandon Dean Price Angolan Medal of Freedom for the Baylor player who best exemplifies the values and struggle of the people of Angola. The first annual recipient is none other that Boerne's own, Josh Lomers, aka the Slum Lord, for his role as solid backup to the Mayor, aka Polyglot, Mamadou Diene, and for his gangly, awkward Ostertag-esque potential.

Angola Avante! (the sub-Saharan African "Sic 'Em")

  • Wow, I need to thank some people for making this possible. Thank you UHaul for giving me such a shitty job that I spend all day reading blogs. Thank you Baylor football for being so shitty that when the student body tore down the goal posts for 3 consecutive years after beating a big 12 opponent. And thank you Angola for being some country in which I share an award.

    I'll be in Waco in 3 weeks, just let me know where to pick up my trophy.

  • BDP,

    Your trophy is actually a gift certificate to Bev's Beef and Brew, which is now out of business. However, in the spirit of Angolan Freedom, we promise to buy the first round at Fred & Wally's when you return to reclaim your kingdom.

  • I poured one out for the Waco Lions last night. I'm still proud.
