ANIMATED: Goldy Takes Bucky To The Extreme

Along with their other various sports traditions, the state of Minnesota is well-renowned for their long history in the sport. . .or whatever descriptor you'd like to put on it. . .of professional wrestling. Many of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time called Minnesota home, such as "Ravishing" Rick Rude, "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig, and Jesse "The Body" Ventura.

And to their ranks, we can add Goldy the Gopher.

Towards the end of today's blowout at TCF Bank Stadium between the Wisconsin Badgers and your Minnesota Golden Gophers, the cameras caught this little exchange between the two mascots.


E-C-DUB! E-C-DUB! E-C-DUB!

ahem

That was just about the only thing that the Gophers got the upper hand in on the afternoon, as the Badgers took home Paul Bunyan's Axe for the eighth consecutive time, defeating the Gophers by a final score of 42-13.

There's always next year for the Axe. Maybe the next time we see something like this, the table will break like it's supposed to.

Hat tip to Timothy Burke (aka bubbaprog) on Twitter for providing the animated goodness.
