A Moment of Silence

The guy who writes for With Leather and Kissing Suzy Kolber who is a former marine, had a brief write up today to take a moment and reflect on the tragic day that happened 7 years ago.

He has a link to an article that he wrote a couple of years ago that is a very good tribute to the events of 9/11. Everyone remembers where they were on that day, and will never forget. Take some time, reflect, and read the article if you can.

ESPN2 tonight 8pm CDT

Watch four star TCU commit Jurrell Thompsonof Wichita Falls. He is number three, currently listed as an athlete for college. He will play running back for Rider as they take on Sulphur Springs. He is listed as the #20 athlete in the country and watching his highlights, kid is impressive. Or you could watch UNC Rutgers, though I personally would rather watch a future Frog.

Fire up those chain-saws

If we beat the Lumberjacks by 60 points, what chance do the TREES have??? There has been a lot of whining about Hurricane Ike and the game being moved up 'til noon. As WWHD so eloquently put it, we need to be more worried about the damage that Henson & company are going to inflict upon Stanford's nerd souls and what to do with yourself after you've blacked out before Whataburger even stops selling breakfast.

We used to have plenty of day games when I was a freshman and sophomore- and while not getting to sleep in might suck, it's totally worth it when you lay down for a coma/nap in the afternoon with a W already in hand. So make sure your alarm clocks are set for Saturday morning, get the ingredients ready for bloody mary's, screwdrivers, etc, and let's rediscover the beauty that is the AM bender.

As an added bonus, here is the latest computer model projection of what the newscast will look like Saturday night in the Bay Area:
