    Lord Nelson, the only horse to be flagged for a penalty in a college game, has died. :wtf:

    Rutgers University says Lord Nelson was 42, or the human equivalent of 126 years.

    One of Lord Nelson's duties during his 37-year Rutgers career was carrying the school's Scarlet Knight mascot during football games. During a close game against Army in 1994, Nelson broke onto the field and raced all the way down the sideline to the opposite end of Giants Stadium. Receiving a yellow flag for his “un-sportsHORSE-man like conduct,” he almost cost Rutgers the game.

    Lord Nelson was one the first horses to comprise the university police department's mounted patrol unit when he was purchased in 1978. He served for 10 years before becoming part of a student-run patrol unit.

    He retired as equine professor emeritus in 2000 to teach children about horses.

    Considering that Rutgers is quite possibly the most classless university in the country, I'm gonna go with the "don't give a fuck" option.

    What!! A horse dies and no Beth jokes yet? I'm game:

    Ok, so what's the difference between the Rutgers football team mascot and Beth O?

    Give up?

    One is a dumb fucking clod hopper that's kicks humans when they're down and the other is dead!

    Beth was very upset about this. So I asked her, why the long face?
