  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have two:

    1) Being on A Deck, 45 yard line, when Eddie George ran all over Notre Dame and the crowd started chanting "Ed-die, Ed-die, Ed-die!"

    2) Being in the Louisiana Superdome and mockingly chanting "S-E-C, S-E-C, S-EC!" when Ohio State beat Arkansas. It DID happen. I was THERE! You can wipe the record books, but not my memories.

I don't believe it was all about was about what most wars are about, power and control.  Industrial North and their textile mills dependent upon the agricultural South and their cotton fields.

The South was like a cotton cartel, and the North had to deal with it.  Plantain owners and Industrialist were at war regarding who had the $$ and power in this country.  Slavery was the plantation owner’s competitive advantage.  So was it "about" slavery.  No.  It was about power and greed and it was the disgusting and unethical use of slaves which came into play.

Also, I'm all for preserving history, for the sake of not repeating it.  While I believe the confederate flag is insensitive to the decedents of slaves, it should not fly over a state capitol because it is a symbol of rebellion against the United States, it is treasonous.  It says "I'm part of the United States...sort of, I'm actually still fighting a 100 year war against the United States". This is what I most despise about the flying the confederate flag.  It is a symbol of war against the United States of America and an embarrassing part of our history.

Now, please don't ban me :)

I live near Boulder, CO and while it's all Broncos all the time, I work with many CSU grads that are very football crazy about their team.  I got a lot of "you really think they can win?" 

Mostly PAC-12 band-waggoners.  My kids wore their Buckeye gear to school that Monday, and they informed me that night they were the only tOSU fans in the building and they got a lot of middle school smack talk.  I told them I was proud they represented and that they would feel much better the next day.  Needless to say...they got their smack-talk revenge. :)

I even supplied them with some good one liners to pull out on the haters ("Oh Hey,  I think EZE just blew through the OR defensive line and scored ANOTHER touchdown!").  It was a good day for them.  Middle school is rough!

I got quite a few congrats at all Buckeye fans, I wear the colors loud and proud.

I like the Buckeye dude's car.  How about someone photoshop an attractive Buckeye fan with his car?

I want OSU to have an e-sports team!  Largest athletic department in the country needs one of those!

I've been to two Sugar Bowls (one the Nat'l Champ Game) and you are not getting a hotel for $100...Not sure how far outside the city you would need to stay, but man.  Bowl game travel is not cheap.
