As you may remember, one of the hosts of ESPN’s College GameDay became my sworn enemy five years ago (if not, you can read about it here). It’s been two long years since GameDay has been to a USC game. Two long years for me to sit and hate Corso and plot my revenge. And then, this past Saturday, College GameDay came back to USC.
It was the moment I’d been waiting for.
And unfortunately, one of my signs only lasted a moment.
Corso sent one of his goons over, and it was immediately confiscated. It was even captured on TV.
He was clearly ready for me.
What did the sign say?
I don’t understand what’s so offensive about that sign. They’re both grandpas. My dad sends picture texts of Annabel out all the time. Some people are so sensitive.
Luckily, I’d anticipated Corso’s keen eye, and had prepared two signs, with the second one being far more threatening:
That’s right, Corso! DON’T MESS WITH ANNIE SPOHR!
And, no joke, a security goon came over and tried to get me to turn over my Annie sign. I think that particular goon thought I still had my other sign on the back, but he was mistaken.
Or…maybe Corso realized that there’s another Spohr girl out there…and he’s terrified.
And he should be.
Annie Y says:
I Love you even more now!
Being a girl from Green Bay, anything that makes fun of someone I can’t stand (Corso) and including another person I despise (Favre), you just made my day.
I could totally kiss you right now!
Agreed. Go, Pack, GO!
Nikki Paige says:
Made me giggle for a good 5 minutes.
Suck it Corso!
Ohmigoodness, I think I love you! In a totally creepy, stalkerish way…
He never stood a chance.
Corso is a kill joy! WTG on out thinking him. Annie is adorable on that poster.
I left for Austin on Saturday morning but made sure I set my DVR so that I could watch later and look for your sign. I was so happy on Sunday when I watched and saw Annabel’s College Gameday debut!! She’s a star! And Corso better etch out!!!
Nice sign! Now I see where Annie and Maddie got there little mischief sides and just how endearing they are…..they totally take after their Mama and how lucky they are!!!!
haha Heather you are too funny! I love both of your signs. Maybe us college football fans around the country can gang up on him… then he’ll be afraid to visit any college town I’m a WVU fan and for the 2008 fiesta bowl Corso picked Oklahoma by 3 TDs! We beat them 48-28… take that Corso. Of course, now my team is in the dumps this year so I’m sure he won’t be here for years to come. I guess I can still cheer you and your signs on to get him good
I think you might have him on the run Mrs. Spohr…
Maybe he actually wanted the photo to go on some sort of crazy religious shrine built to protect himself from you and your internet blogger powers.
Kim Wencl says:
ha – that is great – way to make me laugh at 7:17 in the am! He’d better watch out – the Spohr girls have his number!
Heather, you make me laugh! I totally love your new sign!
I went to Florida State, which happens to also be Mr. Corso’s alma mater, and I don’t even like him! Why? Because he NEVER picks us to win! Don’t forget how you got to sit behind that desk, Lee!
HAHAH! It’s so nice to see Jackie! in your last picture! I hope she is doing well.
That is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. I LOVE the Annie sign!
The Annie sign is too freaking adorable.
This is AWESOME! I love watching College Game Day for the signs alone and loved your original Game Day Post. This is even better!
You clearly have him very afraid and looking over his shoulder. Hilarious.
Obviously Corso hates babies.
Oh wait, that’s Nikon.
I kid, I kid…
I read through your last Corso post (because I hadn’t before) and this one and here I am crying with laugher. Hi-freakin-larious. Thanks for that!
I just wanted to share a link with you. While reading about this family I thought of you . Then I kept finding the words rigby in her posts and I thought you should check it out. http://patrickandashley.blogspot.com/2010/08/i-can-do-hard-things.html
I read everyday and love seeing pictures of your girls. I want to squeeze annie ! Love, Steph
This is a priceless post! I loved both signs. And hey many grandpas send picture texts. Gee Corso is touchy. And how dare they try to confiscate Annie, can’t they read? I know I will never be as cool as you but it is my dream.
so funny!!! love both signs. knew you’d come up w/something witty!
When I saw College Gameday was going to be at the USC game, I was ready to look for your sign. Then I forgot to watch the show because I have a two year old who dictates her own show
Beware of Annie Spohr!!! I would be nervous!
I totally saw your sign! Love it!!!
jaime young says:
This is HILARIOUS! So glad it was on TV! Win for the Spohr family!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Angie M. says:
you are hilarious & have huge balls!!! love it!
Team Annie! Heather you are hilarious! Love it!!!
EAT IT CORSO!
Funnelcloud Rachel says:
Oh, the whole backstory is hilarious! Heather, you are awesome (and you have big balls)!
toni bautista says:
sooo cooool!!!! smart with the 2nd sign!!!!
This is so awesome…It actually makes me wish I had a sworn enemy too!!
Barb in Michigan says:
LOVE IT !!!! As a rabid Michigan State fan , it’s a toss up which to dislike more Corso or Mussburger. Only when FORCED to does Mussburger ever say anything good about MSU ! MY God , how manytimes do we have to get to the Final Four in a row before he says something nice on his own ?
Go Get’em , Spohrs !!!!!
Oh, I love a good Corso vengance…there is a sports radio station here in Dallas that I listen to and they have a drop about Corso’s “babyarm” (er, hope thats not too vulgar?) so I just started giggling when I saw your post…
Everything about this, previous story included, is totally genius.
I am literally laughing out loud… tears. It never gets old to go back and read that old Corso vs. Spohr post. And, I loved the new signs. L.O.V.E.
Hahaha, I love this! You are so ridiculously awesome.
Suzanne D says:
Ha! I was watching GameDay to see if I could see any “Signs by Heather.” I missed the Annie sign, so sad
You should check this out. Your sign made this site in January … http://www.holytaco.com/25-funny-college-gameday-signs I decided to look up “college gameday signs” since yours made me laugh! Will keep looking now!
I think the pp had it right… your next sign should reference Corso Hating Babies.
This is pure awesomeness – thank you. Will you be my BFF?
I’ve been following this and think it’s hilarious. The Annie sign is awesome.
Awesome! I thought the sign on the 2008 post read: Corso Stole My Binki! I don’t know why. But dude! That’d totally work for Annie’s next sign.
Holy crap that made me laugh…
I am catching up on blog reading this morning watching Gameday being broadcast from my alma matter, University of Utah and wishing I were there instead. It’s just not the same to watch Utes football from NYC. I guess we offically become football rivals on the first game on next season. BTW no kids yet, stumbled on your blog awhile ago I don’t even know how, and love it.
I’ve been reading your blog for awhile….but this – this cracked me up! I was laughing out loud as I read about your game day signs. Fast forward to today – I am preparing to go to the Monday Night Football game in Cincy tonight and wracking my brain to come up with an ESPN sign. Googling to get idea…I found a site that had your baby daddy sign on it! Did you know? One of the 20 best game day signs ever?? http://www.bustedcoverage.com/?p=7340
