Looks Like We Made It | 11/04/08
Thanks to the 93% of Washingtonians, coupled with the educated and urban poor of America, Obama won the election last night. Special thanks to you who elected to keep Chompy safe and out of the scope of Sarah Palin. I waited in a four-block long line at 8am but it moved quickly as a whopping 93% of my non-state voted (correctly) for Obama. Most of you don't live here, but if you did you'd know we've already reached our quota for old drivers and hot moms. I don't have a law degree but I can understand that there simply was not room for McCain and Palin here.
Now, onto more serious matters. I am absolutely convinced I could be a starting cornerback for a college football team. I'm not talking about FSU. I'm not talking about Temple. I'm not talking about Western Iliinois. I'm not even talking about the Colorado School of Mines. I'm talking about a tiny, Jesuit university in the middle of nowhere in Illinois: Quincy University. I know damn well I would not make it onto teams at FSU, Temple, WIU, or CSoM but I do believe that at QU I could be a starter. What are my qualifications you ask? Well, I WENT to FSU. I've watched a lot of football. I'm mean and like hitting people. I'm reasonably fast. I'm smart and rarely fall for the play action when watching on Tv. I'm over six feet tall and weigh in the mid-160s. Not huge but let's look at the roster. Any team with a 5'8", 144lb DB would start me. Sorry Steve, I'm on the team.
