I was walking down 7th Street in Washington D.C. on Saturday, on my way from the National Portrait Gallery to a restaurant for some – surprisingly bad – “Texas BBQ,” when I met a fellow Trojan. See – I was wearing my USC hat, and a passerby started a conversation about our alma mater. He said “I don’t meet too many Trojans here in D.C.” I think I’ve found what’s wrong with our country!
Since I returned to town yesterday, I’m short on time and long on things to write about. I’ll have to be brief. Here are the recent headlines:
- Terrelle Pryor announces he will not return to Ohio State for his senior year. Something tells me that – where there’s smoke, there’s a China Syndrome bubbling.
- The BCS vacates USC’s 2004 title. We’ve still got the 2004 AP National Championship. Plus – as I’ve always said – everyone will remember the truly legendary ass-kicking that we handed Oklahoma. My favorite part was the empty stands – since Sooner fans started leaving after half-time!
- An Oregon player is arrested for driving 118 mph on a suspended license – in a “borrowed” car.
- Marc Tyler is awaiting potential punishment after an Office of Student Judicial Affairs hearing – involving “two alleged recent off-campus incidents involving alcohol and female students.” I sure don’t like the sound of that!
Football season is just around the corner – I can taste the Turkey Dogs already!
