Cal-Stanford Big Game, 1982
November 20, 1982: After racing through a sea of red (the Stanford band), Kevin Moen carries the ball into the end zone, making it Cal 25, Stanford 20. I listened to this on the radio. I don't even like football, and my heart was in my mouth. Good God. The Stanford band lost them the game! You can watch the video here, and you can read the transcript of Joe Starkey's play by play here. Tell me if you don't feel at least a bit of schadenfreude, thinking about what the team did to the band members after the game. Blow me a tune through that hole, trombonist. Now meet the Republican party's version of the Stanford band. Evangelist James C. Dobson recently opened his trap on the subject of George W. Bush's Supreme Court nominee, Harriet E. Miers. From the New York Times story: On his radio program last Wednesday, Mr. Dobson said, "When you know some of the things that I know - that I probably shouldn't know - you will understand why I have said, with fear and trepidation, that I believe Harriet Miers will be a good justice." Seems Karl Rove has been whispering sweet nothings in Jimmy's ear. Seems certain Senators, certain powerful Republican Senators like Arlen Specter, ain't too keen on Amrrrka becoming a theocracy. Seems Jimmy D. might jes have to testify before a whole passel o' angry Congressmen on this one. Seems Jimmy D. done run out on the field before the game was up, shore 'nuff.
