Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., has taken #FridayKitty to a whole new level. The Missouri Democrat took to Twitter Friday to apologize in advance for what's likely to be a bevvy of spirited tweets as her University of Missouri takes on Auburn University this Saturday.

"OK, haters out there pls ignore me for 48 hours. My Mizzou has big ass game on Sat & I'm obsessed," she wrote. Additionally, she posted a picture of her couch, covered up almost completely by an enormous stuffed tiger. (Oddly, Auburn's team is also the tigers.)

McCaskill isn't the only political type going crazy over this game. Chuck Todd's SiriusXM show starts Saturday and his first set of guests plan to talk about the game. He's bringing on former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, who grew up in Auburn, Ala., to argue about sports with CBS News' Major Garrett, who roots for Mizzou.

"The only thing we're biased about is sports," Todd told Politico's Playbook.
