now that's what i'm talkin' about

This is just precious:

WA govenor Gregoire (a Husky) handing over the trophy to Coach Doba (WAZZU). Come to think of it, I never even knew there was an actual Apple Cup; I always thought it was a magical mystery thing...which looks like what the shaggy guy in the background seems to be thinking...

Glad that that Apple Cup is over so we can forget both teams' super sucky seasons. The Cougs wore old school away unis though (as in, what they wore when I was there, back in the day) so maybe I'll get lucky and they'll revert back full time. Speaking of uniforms, someone tell U of O that theirs look like stained highlighter (Ginapalooza, 2005) and that OSU's look like Halloween dork-ness.

Today I was a domestic goddess and cleaned windows, re-potted some plants, hung on the phone with Apple tech support for my damn (and I mean that in a loving way) iBook, cleaned out articles in my large, turquoise, PSU-salvage filing cabinet, did dishes, put away laundry, and other things I hate doing and my it's still doesnt' all feel tidy. Not because I wanted to, mind you, but because it had to get done, and heck, it was either that or read and/or get the rest of my classes planned for the remainder of the semester. I am sure I this is Most Interesting to you. And my own personal mental article organizing system is of a kind.

But it was a good backdrop to watch football to. Evil Michigan was up but then dumb old Ohio State won their game, putting the BigTen title at a tie...but Penn State (who by the way nailed it at Michigan State) is the one going to a BCS thing so...that's all that really counts. I miss the days of the Rose Bowl being the game that the BigTen and PacTen champs it's all this super-overly-complicated-so-people-can-talk-about-how-complicated-it-is confusing BCS commerical venture; whatever, someone's got to pay for this gajillion-dollar form of entertainment. I just miss the old traditions. I mean, officially it's the "Tree Top Apple Cup" but who the heck even notices? It's only ever and always will be two teams. GO COUGS!
