Everybody knows that Paul Castronovo is arguably the biggest Florida Gators fan in the world. Equally as such, filmmaker Billy Corben could be the biggest Miami Hurricanes fan. In honor of the in state rivalry game between the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida Gators Saturday (9/7/13), Billy Corben made an interesting bet with Paul Castronovo.
The fan of the losing team has to be painted in glitter with the opposite team's colors. Paul and the Gators lost, so he has to be painted in Miami Hurricanes Glitter and replace his social media photos with his new look.
Dear Cane Fans: Yes, you won the Gator game, but did you really? Ok sure, the final score is important, but what did you really accomplish? Your star running back, the great (against division 2 teams) Duke Johnson was a non factor. In the 3rd quarter, you netted only 2 yards. Are the Canes “Back”? That’s what I keep hearing. You better be able to perform better than you did because nobody else is going to give up 5 turnovers and get into the red zone 6 times with one score!
Am I pissed? Yes. I’m pissed that we (UF) pissed away a game that we owned in every category! Yes, the Cane defense played excellent and did make some important big plays, but not enough to win. You needed our help! Sadly, we obliged and now you get bragging rights for the next 100 years. I had a great time at the game, at least until there was 4 minutes left and I put my Gator tail between my legs and walked to my car. Here’s the deal, there’s still a long season of football left to play. We are off, and then play Tennessee. The Canes play…ready…Savannah State! WTF is wrong with this picture? Win the rest of your games, and you may end up in the top ten. We win the rest of our games and we play for the BCS National Championship game. I pray that we get to see UM in a bowl game, because Christmas is over and you’ll get no more gifts. Am I a Sore loser? Who isn’t? Anybody who loses gets mad, and if you don’t you’re NOT a real college football fan.
Now I am going to speak to the Canes fans that are annoyed by this column: You do me a favor and show up when Savannah State and any other team other than FSU comes to town and you’ll impress me. Prove to me that you’re not a “big game and bandwagon” fan group and then I’ll be impressed. I’ll be driving 5 hours to catch the Gator home games at the Swamp and To The loyal 25,000 that come to Sun Life for all the home games: Congrats and go beat the Noles!
I am proud of the way you’ve been dealing with defeat. Watching your Gators go down must have been devastating, and losing to Miami makes the sting even more painful. However you took it like a man which surprised me frankly. Instead of pissing and moaning you accepted the loss as a gentleman, realizing the age old adage “may the best team win”. I’m sure you also know there are more games ahead and your team might win one of them. In fact I’ve figured out a way to guarantee your favorite team will win. It’s simple, all you have to do is become a UM fan. No more worries about Alabama or Georgia or South Carolina because you’ve gone from orange and blue to orange and green! This SEC stuff is for the birds, and as you grow older the stress can be very harmful. Think about it, instead of Tennessee you’ve got Savannah State for Christ sake. So go ahead and denounce the Gators before they embarrass you again and make you feel like an even bigger chump. And remember…you can’t spell Paul without the U.
