Grudge Match From Way Back

Bad at Sports Boxing Match
If you ever wondered when Bad at Sports really started it was not in 2005. In reality it was in 1896 Richard’s GG Grandfather Josiah Holland and Duncan’s GG Grandfather Cyrus MacKenzie meet at a bar in St. Louis, MO both having tried to get the postal digits of a young barmaid. Both having struck out and blaming each other for the result the grudge that has lasted the centuries began.

Over 100 years later it has come to a head again. This time over the use of the word webby and interweb but this time only one can survive.

Who will win, vote this weekend and see.

Oh also that barmaid that won the hearts but not hand of our two hosts? Turns out she was the GG Grandmother of Christopher Hudgens, one Temperance Hudgens. Kaveh Soofi was the photographer who captured this epic moment in Art grudge history.
