    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Plunge right through that line!
    Run the ball clear down the field,
    A touchdown sure this time. (U rah rah)
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Fight on for her fame
    Fight! Fellows! - fight, fight, fight!
    We'll win this game.
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Stand up, Badgers, sing!
    "Forward" is our driving spirit,
    Loyal voices ring.
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Raise her glowing flame
    Stand, Fellows, let us now
    Salute her name!

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      So many happy memories come along with that song for me.
      And I don't really even care that much about sports.  Never have.

      But I remember crisp fall days many years ago, when my dad took me to Wisconsin football games.  He had season's tickets for two, but could never get my mom interested beyond a game or two a season, and his buddy couldn't always make it.  So Dad took me and taught me what football was all about.  To this day, even though I never really caught the passion for it, I understand the rules of football as well as any avid fan.

      That's just one of so many happy memories I have of growing up in Wisconsin---and I just can't stand that son of a bitch Walker for trying to turn my beloved home state into Texas north.

      Can't sign the petition because I no longer live there, but I can send dollars---have and will send more---and I can send my every wish, hope and prayer that sane Wisconsinites "run the ball clear down the field, a touch down sure this time!"  

      "Fight fellows, fight, fight, fight, we'll win this game." While my passion never really caught on for football, it is bubbling in my veins when it comes to recalling Scott walker.

      And one other quick note--- a pix of Noise of Rain and his incredible, glorious, Recall Walker sign was on Rachel Maddow tonight!
