When saying "Uh Oh..." works!

It's funny how the mind works.  I was thinking about the BCS Championship game with The Ohio State University vs. LSU in which my team lost.  Being a former student/athlete of the OSU Buckeye track team, a native Ohioan and finally a fan of the university in general,  I hate seeing them lose. I don't really want to dwell on that right now though.   I'm still affected by losing 2yrs straight.  So, that's not important. What is important is the little known fact is that the Buckeye's speed coach is none other than Butch Reynolds of whom I have been a fan of for many many years.  Not just because I ran track for OSU, or because I was on the same track with the one time "Fastest Man in the World".  

How many Universities can say that?

It didn't stop there. I segued into thinking about another favorite athlete of mine Marion Jones also one of the best athletes to ever put on a set of track shoes.  She was great!

Finally...somehow it came to rest on the extremely gifted Carl Lewis.  I can't explain how I got there, but I did.

This brings me to the reason for this post.  All these great track and field athlete flashbacks while watching a football game brought me to the recollection of Carl Lewis singing the National Anthem to open a game.

I won't go into detail about it, but for those of you that didn't catch it the first time, here you go.

I listen to the Rome show and he plays the is clip now and then. It is the MOST tragically hilarious thing ever. I don't know whether to cringe or bust out laughing. What he's doing to himself, the anthem and black folk every where....well it just shouldn't happen. I know he doesn't represent black folk per se, but you know what I mean.


Wow.

I refuse to shed a tear for you. lol.

OSU (along with UCLA, USC, UNC, Florida, Notre Dame, etc) sets the bar in collegiate athletics. I'd give my left nut for my beloved Terps to play in back to back BCS national title games.

OSU has more than it's fair share of success.

Everyone has a talent and if singing isn't it...don't attempt it outside of your home. I still can't get past the "Ohhhhhh"
