Rose Bowl

Sandra Day O'Connor tossed the coin at the start of the National Championship football game. No word yet as to whether it was the same coin she used to decide her vote in Bush v. Gore back in 2000. Not surprisingly, Texas won the toss. The first touchdown by Texas came on a play where the quarterback made an illegal forward lateral after his knee was down. Unlike seemingly every other play in the game, this one was not reviewed (recounted?).

Actually, I was pulling for Texas. UT is a bastion of liberalism in the heart of that blood-red state, while USC is a bunch of rich frat boys slumming in Watts. And a few shaky calls went USC's way too. So congratulations to Texas, national champions!
