    And why do we so often have a bimbo sounding like they must be having labor pains killing our National Anthem! A Military band should play it!

    Of all the games today am enjoying this game the most. Both of these teams are playing extremely hard on both sides of the ball and the refs are letting them play. Nice to see this degree of effort in a bowl game.

    Watching Stanford's offense is giving me flashbacks of our own terrible offense.

    Very impressed by these Sparty Meatchickens. They play so hard. Are well coached and very well prepared. Excellent coaching on display right here. This is what it looks like and what we need so badly.

    But, the question remains. Why would anyone want to live in Meatchicken. Well maybe Detriot it is very cosmopolitian afterall.
