Revenge Is Dish Served Best in a Wheelbarrow

Realtor Jack "Fuzzy" Harmon and Harrison County Court-at-law Judge Jim Ammerman II didn't make their bets, they inherited them from their fathers, who renewed a simple wager each year. The wager: the loser of the Arkansas/Texas game, an old Southwest Conference rivalry now turned into a periodically contested SEC/Big 12 game, would push the other around the business district of Marshall, Texas in a wheelbarrow.

↵The sons, who both attended Texas, keep up the wager as a tribute to their fathers, and perhaps as a sort of discount, DIY cardiac stress test. Carrying another grown man around in a wheelbarrow certainly doesn't sound easy to me, especially when you consider wheelbarrow training is a cornerstone of training at The Pit, John Hackelford's torture center/MMA training facility.

↵This did not exactly sound like hardcore training in any sense of the word, however: ↵
↵⇥"We added balloons this year since it was such a blow-out," Ammerman said of the game and the wheelbarrow decorations. ↵
↵A cold hard scientific fact: if something involves balloons, it is festive and therefore not painful. This story is also a reminder that whatever you're doing, they're doing it bigger in Texas. That is all. ↵
