Wildcat Formation

How did this happen, exactly?

The Wildcat Kickoff Party, a UofA football confab featuring a pump-you-up speech by head coach Mike Stoops, isn’t taking place at some Tucson piece of you-know-what like Danny’s Baboquivari or the Wildcat House, but in the ASU Sun Devils’ backyard at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa.

Ugh, multiplied by 5,000.

Now, we’d like to suggest all sorts of party-crashing follies, but since that would be illegal – plus, there’s no way you’ll see us wearing red-and-blue attire, which is required for entrance – we’ll instead suggest this: Imitate Tucson’s annoying-ness by standing outside the joint and taunting the ’cat fans with a rousing “Wait ’til basketball season.” Because, you know, ASU has schooled the pussycats on the hardwood five consecutive times.

We’re just saying.
