Arizona's football team got curbstomped on the field Saturday night in Tempe, losing 58-21 to Arizona State for the Wildcats' worst loss in the Territorial Cup series since 1996.
But the night wasn't a total loss, as the NSFW video above shows.
Hey, Professor Francis, this goes out to you, good sir. I'm sure you'll be thrilled with this bit of good news: According to a study by mobile ad technology company Marchex, Arizona is one of the top five states where residents are least likely to curse.
The company examined more than 600,000 phone calls over a 12 month-period. Researchers looked at calls placed by consumers to businesses across 30 industries, including cable and satellite companies, auto dealerships and pest control centers. They then scanned for curse words and matched them to the state from where the calls were placed.
Ohio ranked first among states where people were most likely to curse, swearing in one out of about every 150 phone conversations. Maryland came in second, followed by New Jersey, Louisiana and Illinois.
The state least likely to drop the f-bomb or some other curse word? Washington. People there cursed once in about every 300 conversations — or half as much as Ohioans. Massachusetts, Arizona, Texas and Virginia rounded out the top five of what Marchex dubbed the “goody two-shoes” category.
OK, so let's get this out of the way, first: Holy shit, they scanned our cell phone calls for curse words! What the fuck? What else did they scan for? Get that NSA word list out. Perhaps my favorite word was added for good measure. Should be. Only terrorists know how to throw that one around.
Ah, Arizona. Well, perhaps the technology company needs to do a new phone scan and come out with a study on most racist state. Interesting correlation: lack of curse words and increase in fear and bigotry. Related? Absolutely. What needs to happen next? We need to encourage more cursing, obviously.

Exene Cervenka left her apron at home on this visit, but the band X arrived at the Rialto Theatre last Saturday with plenty of the uniquely punked up genre soup that's attracted fans worldwide for more than three decades.
This aromatic grape could be Arizona's great hope, certainly based on Sand-Reckoner's efforts. A day soaking on skins and fermentation in old barrels provides the seriousness found in great dry Alsatian Muscat: intense blossom aromas, plus a chaparral-like woodsy side, rose petal and dried pear. It's densely flavored and bone-dry, full of rich orange and ripe tree fruit flavors.You can taste the Arizona wine at Proper or buy a bottle the next time you're at Whole Foods Market on 5555 East River Road. You can get more information about the Sand-Reckoner Vineyards and wine selections on their website and Facebook page.
