i keep forgetting

i’m watching college football.  ecu is beating west virginia 24 to 3 which, i hear, the people of greenville really needed given the hurricane that just passed through town.  you probably saw it on the tv.  the hurricane, i mean.  hurricane gustav.

previewing tim tebow

this is what i learned:

not only is he the first sophomore to win the heisman trophy, not only is he the first player to score 20 plus touchdowns running and passing in a single season, not only is he the first player to have at least 1 rushing and 1 passing touchdown in 14 consecutive games, not only is he a phenomenal athlete, but he’s a remarkable human being as well.

here’s the proof the tv gave me:

when other guys are going to exotic locals on spring-break, tebow is off to the philipines (which, i guess, isn’t exotic) on a mission with his dad to build hospitals.  (tebow;s a christian, right?)  oh.  also, he refused to be featured in playboy magazine.  they were doing some article about possible preseason heisman canidates.  and tebow refused.

back to the game

there are all these rules in college football.  like you can’t celebrate.  ever.  and they changed the time-keeping rules.  to make it harder for comebacks.  to keep the games shorter.  to give us something to talk about.

check out the ecu coach’s sunglasses.

now it’s the post-game

i dont get the set design.  there’s too much information.  that guy’s tie matches the computer-chip background.  there’s always information scrolling along the bottom and down the side and in the background.  and it’s all the same stuff.  repeated over and over and over. they’re talking about the byu/washington game. some guy on washington scored a touchdown with 2 seconds left to cut the lead to 1. but he was flagged for excessive celebration. 15 yard penalty. then the extra point is blocked. washington loses by 1.

quotes from the post-game

-a pac-ten (officiating) crew who threw the flag on a pac-ten team!  ( he seemed suprised by this.)

-what do you think?
-i think it was a strike out . . . the officials should never decide the game!
-that was a travesty of justice! that wasn’t celebration; that was joy!

(there’s a lot of exclaiming)

-a point of emphasis.

-a sever tactical error.
