Put Not Your Trust in Princes or Sports Teams

Loss by the OSU Buckeyes to unranked Purdue drew this sad face from a fellow fan:
Reminds me of that American Indian with a tear in the old '70s-era commercial.

That was indeed a weird loss.

I know how he feels.

I think it can be partially explained by the fact that QB Pryor is not "all-world" as so many thought.

Funny that those who didn't get the win they thought they deserved were so saddened by their disappointment. They would not have been especially happy had they won. At the same time, the upstarts were elated at getting something beyond what they had expected and they would have been much less disappointed had they not succeeded.

From my standpoint, it was a delightful sports weekend on the whole with only a few tiny flies in the ointment.

Oh so true Gregg. Sorry the Rockies didn't make it farther into the playoffs. Now I'm rooting for Torre's Dodgers (because I like Torre) and it looks bleak for them.
