Waxing poetic on Rivalry Saturday
NaturalBlog's alma mater has no football team, so you'll have to forgive me for living vicariously through your college on Rivalry Saturday.
It had everything. Resurgence for Joe Paterno and Penn State, who lock up their first Big 10 championship in 11 years and get into a BCS bowl. A last-minute come from behind win for The Ohio State University over Michigan. A tie after regulation, one overtime, two overtimes in the The Game, until Harvard could finally push past Yale, after trailing 21-3 in the third quarter. And what list would be complete without taking joy in the pain of others: No meaningful Big 12 games (thanks to Texas's week off), and a big fat choke by my least favorite of all: Miami.
And all of it narrated by the sweet tones of our Saturday preachers Brent Musburger and Keith Jackson. So wonderful it was almost enough to make you forget that the stubborn call of the dollar means there's still a chance we'll go one more year without a legitimate national champion.
