So I finally finished up my major project for work last night (I don't know whether to curse, wet my pants or just sleep for 2 solid years....and yes I need a new job) and realized I had forgot to tivo the USC/Texas game. Luckily I caught the second half. Nice game. Stupid game for USC. Classic screwups led to Texas taking it. Vince Young was awesome but it wasn't like Texas was forcing most of those stupid decisions USC made (Bush lateral---going for it on 4th and 2 at the end of the game leading to a short field for Texas...Insane). And can people please stop using the "In-Vince"able" thing when talking about the Texas QB. Yep, the name lends itself to a nice pun. Shoot me already.
I'm trying to decide which fan base is more obnoxious, Longhorns or Trojans? I think it's Texas fans because they can't shut up about the Lonhorns even when they don't win. Now with them winning I've got to hear it from my Texas buddy (who definately needs some Ritalin) for who knows how long. The good thing about the Longhorns win is that we got to see the "Vince Young pouty Heisman runner-up face" on Matt Leinart this time. He pulled a really nice one when exiting the field and even gave us the "were still better" speech. Woops Matt....uh...you just lost. I tried that one on buddies when my Rams lost to the Patriots in the Superbowl a few years back. It was lame.
Anyway......bring on the NFL playoffs. I'm ready. I might even be able to see some games after really missing quite a few the last few weeks. I'm still troubled about whether or not I should just stick pins in my Tom Brady voodoo doll or completely cut off the legs. Thoughts?
