Tonight my other favorite college team goes head to head with a southern juggernaut - Notre Dame will play Alabama. If ND wins, they'll be National Champs. As someone said - college football is so much more interesting when Notre Dame counts. So far, I'm 1 and 1. NIU lost to Florida State in their Bowl game - Northwestern beat Mississippi State.
Watch out for Seattle. I predicted their win, yesterday, but I have to say I was just a bit nervous after the first quarter of the game. But by halftime it was clear that the Seahawks were on their game and there was less reason to worry. Seattle can beat any team out there - they could well be in the Superbowl.
And now for something completely different ...
I'm thinking of changing my name to Diogenes. I am SO disappointed in those people we elect to public office. I am so disappointed in the way the process has become the result of purchase. I am so disappointed in the pervasive corruption that exists at all levels of Government. Like Diogenes, I feel like I will never find my "Honest Man".
I look at the circus that replacing Jesse Jackson, Jr. has become and I wonder why so many are so anxious to replace him INSTEAD of rejoicing in the number of people willing to offer themselves up to serve the people. Because I KNOW in my bones that the only people they are truly interested in serving are themselves.
On that disappointing tirade, I leave you with a wish for a pleasant week.
