Final Thoughts on Super Bowl

Congrats to Pittsburgh, who did what it took to win. Seatle will be back, they are a great team who played a great game, but simply made too many mistakes and had too many calls go against them to win, despite dominating much of the game.

Picture of the mostly "Gringo," Crowd watching the game tonight.

For the first time in my memory, The Colonial charged to watch the game. They included an excellent buffet in the $20 price though, so I cant complain too much.

Super Bowl Blogging

I am at the Colonial Sports Book in downtown San Jose.
Seatle won the the toss and Pittsburghs defense quickly shut them down.
I bet on the over of 461/2 points. Pittsburgh has the ball... Quick penalty and then a no gain on Second and 15. One yard on the screen play. Another false start... 3rd and 20...
Three and out and Pittsburgh looks nervous.

I don't have a horse in this race. In fact, I am not even very motivated to watch.... I could care less... But everyone in the blogsphere seems to be predicting a Pittsburg win.

Since I am a west coast guy, I am going to go with the Hawks...

GO TROJANS! Congrats Horns!

cheer.jpg

Today we take our place as one of the greatest teams of all time. Let the word go out and across the land. Troy will NOT be denied!

Update: We blew it. Blew it spectacularly. Props to The best Quarterback I have ever seen play a championship game, and he was wearing a Longhorn Uniform. And YES, I owe my buddy Boyd big time, and will pay up with grace and class, and shit even joy, because I will be hanging out with him when I pay!

As for Texas, you played like Champions and you deserve the rings. Congrats!

Update II: Boyd weighs in on the Texas victory, and as usual, he is a perfect sportsman about it!

Another Bush Landslide...

Only this time there were no dirty politics, or suggestions of a fix being in... This Bush simply ran away from the competition the way he has all year...

3227908_7_2.jpg


NEW YORK -- Reggie Bush left the competition behind -- as usual.

Southern California's incomparable tailback won the Heisman Trophy as college football's best player Saturday night over Texas quarterback Vince Young and USC quarterback Matt Leinart, last year's winner.

Flashing uncanny acceleration and ability to change direction, Bush has conjured up memories of Gale Sayers, drawn comparisons to Marshall Faulk, Barry Sanders and Tony Dorsett, and is the favorite to be the No. 1 pick in April's NFL draft.

"Oh man, this is amazing," Bush said, with a row of former winners lining the stage behind him. "It's truly an honor to be elected to this fraternity. I've been in college for three years and it's the first time I've been invited into a fraternity."

Bush received 2,541 points to finish 933 points ahead of Young, with Leinart a distant third.

The 784 first-place votes received by Bush was the second-most in Heisman history, topped only by USC's O.J. Simpson, who had 855 in 1968. Bush was first in all six regions and appeared on 99 percent of the ballots, also a Heisman record.

Bush and Leinart will be the first Heisman winners to play in a college game together when USC goes for a third straight national title against Texas in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 4.

I would say that Texas is in for a LONG day come Rose Bowl time...

I seem to recall a few days ago, one of my buddies replying to a post about USC's rush to the National Championship, by talking about the Alabama Crimson Tide being a contender for USC's Crown....

I DONT think So....

USC 51 - Washington 24

And the hits just keep on coming.

01_USC2.jpg

Like I said to the folks watching last weeks clash with Notre Dame, it aint over till it's over, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't just a tad worried about SC's upcoming schedule, especially the MONSTER that has grown up right next door!

I also have little doubt...

That come January.... These Monsters will be waiting somewhere in America to challenge 'SC to a good old barroom brawl of a Football game.

texas3.jpg

So I am going to get my bet in now with my Pard from Tejas... Boyd, how about we bet lets say a case of your favorite Texas BBQ against a case of Cacique, the best Hooch in Costa Rica, on the outcome of that eventual clash?

The Classic!

Here in Costa Rica, they call the two or three (or four) times a year, that La Liga and Saprissa, (The two most popular soccer teams in Costa Rica) play; "El Classico." The Classic....

I have tried to explain to my Costa Rican friends that two teams who play several times a year, do not make, "A Classic". I invited my best Tico friend to watch yesterday's USC/Notre Dame game. The game lived up to the hype.

apcacunrr_usc_notre_dame_1ac27-lg.jpg

I watched the game at the Colonial, one of Costa Rica's big sports books, with about 100 mostly americans. I was surrounded by Notre Dame fans, which made the last few minutes of the game rather tense.

It looked shaky up until the final seconds, but the Trojans are champions, and in the end they played like it. There were the Green Jerseys, the screaming fans, and the mystical traditions of Notre Dame to deal with. There was also adversity, dropped balls, penalties and questionable calls, but the cool confidence of a championship team won out in the end....

The way they played yesterday, I have no doubt that my beloved Trojans are on the way to another National Title.

Trojans whup Razorbacks!

Can you say, back to back Championships?

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Matt Leinart , Reggie Bush & Co. hit Arkansas with a first quarter the Razorbacks won't soon forget.

And that was just the beginning.

Leinart passed for 381 yards and four touchdowns and ran for another TD in less than three quarters, Bush scored the first two times he touched the ball, and No. 1 Southern California routed the Razorbacks 70-17 Saturday night, rolling up 736 yards in total offense.

"I guess they just didn't have the answers for us today," Bush said in a major understatement after the Trojans reached the 70-point plateau for the first time in nearly 35 years.

The win was the 24th straight for USC - one shy of the school and Pac-10 record and the longest active winning streak in the country. Playing their home opener before an ecstatic crowd of 90,411 at the Los Angeles Coliseum, the Trojans (2-0) won their 22nd consecutive home game.
