and to think I heard Desmond Howard talking on ESPN about how great Clemson's defense was.  Roll Eyes

Herbstreit said Clemson was going to win and it was going to be a blowout.

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

He batted .500 on that one.

Yeah, I'm aware those exist, and that they're important to a significant number of people, although I don't know why.

But for franksolich, the only sport is college football, and once it's done for the year, no more sports happen until the end of the following August.

I wish I could figure out why racing that doesn't involve any right turns or hills could interest anybody.  But that's just me.

I understand. Same's true for me with golf, tennis, basketball and that silly thing they call arena-something-or-other.

I wish I could figure out why racing that doesn't involve any right turns or hills could interest anybody.  But that's just me.

NASCAR has some road courses - with right turns and hills and all at Infineon Raceway, Watkins Glen International, Road America and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve (Montreal). ......... But I have to admit that my interest has diminished somewhat since the old days when Allison, Earnhardt and Elliot ruled.

The 'race on Sunday, sell on Monday' adage doesn't apply to NASCAR anymore.  It's a shame, but I think that's mostly NASCAR's fault with their Car Of Tomorrow type racing than genuine stock car stuff. 

I don't know if they still do this, but British Touring  Car racing was real stock car stuff in the early 80's.  It's all over YouTube.

Not to veer this thread off course, but . . . okay, maybe I do want to veer it off course . . . did anyone catch Top Gear this morning--the segment where Jeremy Clarkson, in a Range Rover, races a Challenger II tank?  I woke my daughter up with my laughing.  What a riot.
