I would pay $1 billion to see that

Apparently Herschel Walker has challenged Steve Spurrier to a fight:
"Well, you know, is that not insulting? That's totally insulting for a coach of his stature to say something so stupid," said Walker, getting angrier by the syllable. "So my question I say to him is, if he's got that much guts, why don't he step in a ring against me? You don't say something that silly, because you're going to get somebody hurt. Georgia was punished, because that's a penalty. They didn't go out to hurt anyone. [Spurrier] talks about hurting somebody. How much guts do you have? Step in a ring with me, and then we'll see."

This all goes back to The Celebration, which Spurrier apparently had a problem with, saying if Richt tried that against him he'd of sent a 3rd stringer in to start a fight and really get Georgia in trouble.

Nice class, no class.

Seriously. I would borrow and raise every last penny I could to watch Herschel Walker fight Steve Spurrier for what I imagine would be a .00005 second confrontation.

Picked up on this from the good Sen. Blutarsky, who may be the most prolific Dawg blogger on the net.
