Eric Ashel is another proud alumnus of The University of Kansas, a Jayhawk through and through. He was brave enough to venture deep into Tiger country for his documentary, Border War, that purports to dig deep into the roots of the rivalry between The University of Kansas and the University of Missouri, the greatest sports rivalry in the United States. Obviously, I’m completely objective on this issue.

I haven’t seen the film yet, but I could hardly be more excited about it. I think it will be the definitive answer to last year’s HBO documentary on the lake party love fest that purports to be the Michigan and The Ohio State University rivalry. I’m counting on this movie to prove, once and for all, that no other rivalry comes close to our athletics, hatred, history and vitriol.

All you far-flung Jayhawks out conquering the broader world should make a point to check it out if you are back home with the family over the Thanksgiving holiday.
