Stewart Mandel Makes Good?

"Varsity and 790 the Zone are hosting an event onFriday morning from 10am to 11am. They are giving away 600 hot dogs to the first 600 students who come by Varsity. 790 and Varsity are creating thisevent around a Sports Illustrated reporter who picked Chan Gailey as one ofthe worst coaches in the country for the past two years. The reporter is showing up and buying hotdogs to make good on a bet that Coach would not win the division. They plan to dress the reporter up in Tech gear and a wig and get photos of him eating his words, literally. First and foremost though, we'd like the student's support at the team sendoff Friday at 1:30pm. Just wanted to let you know!
