Okay, even watching on my little TV screen, that was fun — Oregon State beating Number 1 ranked USC, 27-21. Wish I’d been there. Well, at least, people took photos.
I like the ending of this Sports Illustrated article: USC no longer Pac-10 bully.
As he walked out, Taylor Mays reminded his teammates of one thing before he headed toward the bus. “We’re still USC,” he said. “And that still means something.”
Maybe so, but it’s beginning to mean less and less in Corvallis.
Marjorie took this one. Check out army of blue people (security guards), locked arm in arm, protecting… not the orange crowd from getting too unruly, no… but the goal posts. I know fans try to bring down goal posts, but still… It makes for an almost surreal image. It would look to an unfamiliar observer as if we value goal posts above all things. Not football, not winning, but our goal posts. Protect the goal posts! Protect the goal posts!
Anyway… I still wish I’d been there. ‘Tis so sweet to beat the Number 1 team. Upsets are fun.
