Firstly, great running diary by Go Beers. Being at the game, it was tough to keep track of things at times (esp. being in Row 73). For example, I thought it was Forsett who fumbled late, not Lynch.
But I post here not as much to talk about the Big Game, but more about that other Big Game, UCLA-USC. I LOVED that replay of Pete Carroll at the end. He is running down the field in that energetic manner of his. His face has a anxious and cocerned look on it. Then, when the USC player lept into the air and appeared to make the catch, his face lit up with the glorious joy of 1,000 burning suns. And then, as the ball fell harmlessly to the ground and his world crumbled and crashed like so many shards of glass, a look perfectly reflecting that emotional devestation crept into his face. It’s so hard to explain. Anybody who saw it knows what I am talking about.
I hate USC so much. I hate everything about USC. Its arrogance is certainly tops of the list and nothing reflects that more than the brash braggadacio of Pete Carroll. To see that crush in that schauenfraude (sp??) way. Well, that almost makes it worth it all. And to think that if DeSean keeps that big toe in, we are going to the Rose Bowl. But perhaps it is better this way. With the way Longshore has regressed, I’m nervous about A+M, let alone Michigan. I still think we can win, though.
GO BEARS! BEAT THE AGGIES!
