2293. It used to be a thrill

College football is such a great sport
Though I give it way too much import
Who cares if my heroes
Are all-stars or zeroes
As over the field they cavort?

Wife and I will get up 4 hours from now and drive 125 miles in heavy traffic to Norman to join 86,000 other fans to see our alma mater, Oklahoma University, play Baylor.  We will pay $25 to park half a mile from the stadium, sit in seats designed to hold people who weigh under 120 pounds, buy cokes and hot dogs for $5 each, and spend half the game on our feet because people in lower rows feel compelled to stand.  And it's on TV...
