Well that was a title game for the ages. Can we just pretend the Boise State - Oklahoma game was the real championship? It's much more fun to pretend that the Broncos are the National Champs rather than another team from Florida. Although Florida's playground inspired, EA Sports-engineered playbook is mildly entertaining, the entertainment value was negated by Ohio State's inability to keep up. Oh, and did you hear that crash? That's Troy Smith falling to the second day of the draft!

On the positive side, I was able to finish my book, Fargo Rock City, and catch the last two-thirds of "Rambo: First Blood Part II". As a kid, my mom wouldn't even let me own toy guns, much less watch what was, at the time, the self proclaimed 'most violent movie of an era'. What a perfectly enjoyable cheeseball of a film, devoid of any dialogue. Sure, I'll pretend that I only enjoyed it ironically, but we all know the real truth. Indeed, at time the tension runs high, enough so that I once uttered hopefully, 'C'mon John!' I was immediately shamed. Not any more than the Buckeyes though.
