What's Beef?: Mason vs. Washington

Little-know fact: George Mason and George Washington were once friends (check out this old letter from GW to GM). But after Mason refused to sign the Constitution because there was no Bill of Rights included, a beef ensued. Fortunately, the Constitution was ratified for the Bill of Rights just four years later.

Meanwhile, the beef never ended. With both guys dead for over 200 years, I think Mason just got the last laugh. That is, unless the two schools play in the national champion game sometime, at which point our heads would explode.........


"Hey Washington, this pop's for you...."
