Mizzou Links for Monday, March 31
Quarantine Day 175: We’re starting to crack
- So you’ve heard of Tiger King, right? Who hasn’t? Tigers, murder conspiracies, animal rights, cocaine… everyone’s in on this show. Including me!
Well, because we’re all brain-poisoned by the internet, and because people have way too much time on their hands, someone went ahead and did this:
I downloaded a Mizzou football hype vid from YouTube and paired it with Joe Exotic’s “I Saw A Tiger.” I tragically must announce they go together too well. pic.twitter.com/5svc9F7H74

I find this to be equal parts upsetting and awe-inspiring. Anyone who has watched the show will understand why.
I wouldn’t be mad, though, if Tiger players started saying, “I saw man!” at random junctures during the game. Or if Mizzou wanted to play the song at games.
I don’t know, y’all. We’re really just trying to get through it, aren’t we?

Yesterday at Rock M
Generally this is where we deposit the Missouri-related links that don’t fit with the bigger theme. HOWEVER, there are only so many of those to go around these days.
So as long as I’m doing links (Mondays and Tuesdays!) I’ll be posting stuff that’s getting me through this craziness.
- Prayers and good thoughts/wishes to country legend John Prine, who is in critical condition amidst his fight with coronavirus.
- For all my baseball fans out there: MLB.com ranked the Top 5 nastiest fastballs in the majors, and guess what? Four out of the five reside in the NL Central (including one on the Cardinals!)
- All my hip-hop heads out there will be pleased to hear that Frank Ocean has graced the world with two new songs! What better way to pass the time?!
- Tom Hanks is safe, y’all. We can do this.
