Hurricanes 2008, Game 1 recap

  • Total domination of an inferior opponent. There is not much more that can be said.
  • There wasn’t much to learn about this game, other than that the Canes can beat a really bad opponent.  52-7 was the final score.
  • I can’t say the offense or defense looked great, because the talent level was so completely divergent. The best thing is that penalties were relatively low throughout the first half. The game was never close. We did what we had to.
  • We will have to wait until next week to see if we can even hang with the elite class this year.
  • Parking was ridiculously expensive. $25 is too much to pay for general parking to see a lousy college football game. If it was a great opponent, it would be a little easier to swallow. I guess I am used to the $5 park and ride at the Orange Bowl.
  • I miss the Orange Bowl. It was very strange watching a regular season game in Joe Robbie, er Dolphin Stadium.
    It's great to hang out with old friends.
  • It was great to hang out with Oral and Lee.

Friday Bottom 3: Political Speeches in the Last 10 Years

OK, so a couple of these speeches go a few months over 10 years. They were too good not to include them.

Honorable Mention:
Hillary Clinton and her vast right wing conspiracy. Only one day after Bill wagged his finger at the camera, Hillary comes up with the VRWC.

Al Gore created the internet. People try to claim he didn’t say it, but during his attempt to puff himself up, he did take credit for the creation of the internet. That quote came back to haunt him as it was referred to over and over.

#3. John Kerry said that he actually did vote for the $87 billion before he voted against it. This debate answer has to be one of the biggest screw ups caught on camera. Many people believe his nuanced answer may have cost him the election.

#2. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewensky” In a January 1998 press conference, Bill Clinton wagged his finger at the camera and declared with the most serious face ever that he did not have sexual relations with someone. It has been speculated that his speech could have been rearranged in this manner. “Ms. Lewensky, I did not have sexual relations with that woman!” Was he actually pointing at his wife while talking to Monica Lewensky? If so, he may not have lied.

#1. Addressing disappointed Iowa supporters, Howard Dean lets out a string of inspirational words that sounds like Ted Kennedy after drinking a pot of coffee. You can’t quite understand what he was saying, but whatever it was supposed to be turned out to be extremely funny. The scream was replayed countless time and totally sunk his floundering campaign.
