Gators survive!

About two minutes into the fourth quarter, I was convinced they were going to show their talent for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. An offsides call on an onside kick probably saved them going to overtime. Somewhere, Hipparchia is celebrating, as is my neighbor who spread a "Florida Gators" mat in front of his door a day before the game. He just recently passed the New York bar exam, and he and his longtime girlfriend have announced their engagement. DAH! Da-da-da-da-duh!

My USF Bulls were not completely humiliated in their first bowl appearance, even though they were shut out for the first time ever. At least they showed they have a decent defense, except for the second quarter, when they allowed N.C. State two quick TDs.
