BCS CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: ANYONE CAN PLAY
the BCS still sucks, but at least there's a playoff light at the end of the tunnel, huh? yes, 4 teams, hopefully it will be bumped up to 8 teams when all is said and done, but it's progress, molasses progress but progress.everybody out there, you can play this game, it's fun and easy. the championship college football game between Notre Dame and Alabama is this Monday, simply in the comments section predict what the final score will be. the winner of this blog game is the one who picks the actual winning team on the football field Monday and is closest to the actual score. follow my example in the comments. the winner gets three comments from yours truly, the late phoenix, 3 scintillating comments commenting on your blog, your posts. lucky you.i hate Alabama, but i'm not sure why, it's an unconscious thing i believe. could it be that Saban constantly wears the stern look of an oily, unctuous, slimy used-car salesman? could be. could it be that Alabama's recent dominance in college football is getting boring? and that championship game last year was the WORST championship game in any sport, any level, of all time?! i mean, what final, besides soccer, is ever a fucking shutout? come on!!! that's part of it. could it be that as a cool Cali kid, there's something inherently creepy to me about all of those old Bama boosters and their southern drawl and good-ol'-boy network and huge-ass mansions with basements which are painted all red with a giant white A on them, basements housing, okay, there are no banjos used for dueling there, but there are Bama shot glasses and house plants painted Bama red and Bama pool tables and Bama taxidermy...don't laugh, i watched that documentary as well as you did. tru tru, it all contributes.however, the real reason is simply this: it should be USC, it should ALWAYS be USC. folks, there is no more perfect combination of letters and numbers as the following:1USC1USC is as it always should be, that is perfect beauty, Southern Cal should always be no. 1. ah, the glory days of Will Ferrell and Snoop and those past titles before all of the crippling Bush sanctions. remember, beauty in 4:1USCthing is, USC was the preseason no. 1 this year. to say that the Trojans had a disappointing season is to say, well...something about roadkill...yeah, i don't want to talk about it.so, i'm bitter, it comes down to me being bitter, but at least i'm honest bitter butter.my babies, thanks for playing the game, and i'll reconvene with all of you playas on Tuesday for the results...go Irish, win one for Regis!!!!!!.
