City still needing to pay off KU football bet to West Virginia
Well, just when you think you have put the Kansas University football season behind you, we drag it back up again. Last week, Mayor Bob Schumm was supposed to pay off on a bet he made with the mayor of Morgantown, West Virginia related to the KU-West Virginia football game.
As we reported last week, Schumm was supposed to wear some West Virginia Mountaineer gear to the meeting last Tuesday to hold up his end of the bet. But he forgot.
My understanding is that he’ll take care of that tonight. I think the original bet just called for him to wear a West Virginia Mountaineer sweat shirt. But since he forgot, it seems appropriate that he would be required to wear a ’coon skin mountain man cap for the entire meeting. I wouldn’t count on it. I don’t know why, but for some reason, a furball on a man’s head seems like an appropriate way to send off the KU football season.
