Of Jinxes and The Apple Cup


Redhook’s buddy texted him last Saturday night claiming Redhook had jinxed the Dawgs in Corvallis simply by mentioning that UW had a shot at nine wins going in.


Redhook's fantasy team blows, but at least he didn't draft Peyton Hillis.

Redhook takes no responsibility for UW’s loss. First off, with the possible exceptions of the Chicago Cubs’ Curse of the Billy Goat and the ongoing Madden Curse, there are no such things as curses, hexes or jinxes. The Huskies played horribly and got beat. End of story.


On to the Apple Cup. Other rivalry games like Ohio State-Michigan, Auburn-Alabama and Texas-Oklahoma may get more national pub, but the unpredictability of the Apple Cup and the utter hatred between the UW-WSU fan bases is hard to beat.


The Dawgs and the Cougs have been acting more like puppies and cubs as of late.

Unfortunately, both UW and WSU are hobbling into the 2011 Apple Cup. The Dawgs have lost 4 of 5. The Cougs have lost their shot at a bowl, as well as two starting QBs. Still, both teams want desperately to win for pride, bragging rights and the aforementioned mutual hatred. And that’s reason enough for a huge tailgate party.


Redhook has paired up with 107.7 The End and DJ Harms to throw an Apple Cup tailgate party with beer, food, music, games and more. Here are the deets:

Apple Cup kickoff is at 4:30 pm at CenturyLink Field.

The tailgate starts at 10 am in the parking lot just north of Coastal Environmental Systems on Occidental, right across from the Clink’s Will Call office. As you can see below, the party is in easy stumbling distance of the field:

Even if you don’t have game tickets, come down. Both Huskies and Cougs are welcome and the tailgate will continue through the end of the game. You can RSVP to Redhook’s Facebook event or you can just crash the party. Either way, we’d love to have you.

See you there.
