The other day, I told a friend of mine that I was looking forward to watching the college games over the weekend and she looked at me askance. She did not expect an artsy type like myself to be into football, but she did not know that I was raised in South Florida on a steady diet of Florida State football. Normally I don't get to watch that much because I work weekends, but I'm off today and this Nebraska/UCLA game is fantastic. So is the the Akron/Michigan game and we haven't even gotten to Alabama/A&M or my beloved Seminoles yet.

If you're going to be flooded out of work, you may as well spend your day watching young men smash each other into early old age.
