As a blogger, I guess I should've felt obligated to watch the debate last night, but honestly, I didn't watch a minute of it. I went to Thursday night worship service at church, which I have to admit was far more uplifting and interesting than any debate between Bush and Kerry could hope to be. (I did hear some of the radio, mostly of Kerry. Honestly, the man makes my skin crawl. I just get the feeling that every time he opens his mouth that he's like a used-car salesman...saying whatever it takes to get the sale, whether it's the truth or not).
I did, however, engage in a debate with an Auburn fan who feels certain they're gonna win this weekend. He just wouldn't accept the fact that the Vols' defense held the number one rusher in the country to 97 yards last weekend and zero in the second half. He was all about bringing up last year's Auburn success, yada, yada, yada. (It was all good natured, fun debate amongst sports fans...unlike on certain call in shows in Knoxville where the host can get mean spirited).
At dinner after church, several of us tried to witness to a Yankees' fan to see the error of his ways. Unfortunately, we couldn't save him.
