Humility

Humility: I don’t follow
college football closely as I ran out of fan-bandwidth when the Titans
arrived in Nashville. However, I’m watching the Auburn-Georgia game on TV
(currently, it’s the second quarter of a very exciting first half) and
a scrolling score across the bottom of the screen reminds me of another
reason I don’t follow college football: my hometown squad. Has there
ever been a team in the history of Division I football to squander more
fourth quarter leads than Vanderbilt?
(Frankly, it’s a rhetorical question. I don’t want to know the answer.)

    Maybe a safety in OT at the Nashville Coliseum, 11.14.04, would qualify for this club?

    Hmm, that DOES sound like how Vandy typically loses. Oh, wait….

    Okay, people. You are getting dangerously close to being blocked as commentors here.

    Laura, I think we have just been branded as insurgents.

    Hey now!!!! Don’t call me the I word. I think it will be the new “red” or “commie” — a huge insult. [As a child of the Cold War, I remember the sting of those. I’m sure very few others we all three know would.] I am taking it as such. 🙁

    You were called a red and a commie when you were a child? Wow, you were progressive, even for Bolivar. Of course,I may be the only person you know who once voted for a Socialist Workers” Prty candidate.

    Bill, you don’t have to give away all your secrets. Soon, you’ll be letting people know you were a student at Columbia in 1969 and the cat will be out of the bag. (Hey, I’ve seen the pictures.) Back when you were at Columbia, even the fraternity guys voted for the Socialist Workers Party candidate. And then they all grew up to be honored for their civic leadership and philanthropic endeavors — at least some of you did.
