Hallelujah, summer is here and that can only mean one things--repeats of old Tennessee football games Monday nights on CSS. (Comcast Sports Southeast, for those of you who might not know.) Last night, after watching the latest episode of Doctor Who
(and going nuts at the cliffhanger, which thrilled me down to my pinkee toes), I was surfing and came upon the UT vs South Carolina game from 2003. The one that went to overtime. The one that where on third and one, down by three in the first OT, Casey Clausen threw a beauty of a pass that is reeled in and we win the game. Ah a thing of absolute beauty.
Sad thing is, I knew exactly when the play was coming and how it would all turn out, but I still got excited watching the game--hearing the crowd go nuts, seeing South Carolina and Lou Holtz walk off the field once again humilated that they can't beat the might of the Big Orange, hearing the band play Rocky Top. I tell you, it gets the blood pumping.
Can I just say--I cannot wait for football season to start!
