UCLA 13, USC 9

3 Dec 2006 /
USC Trojans

I am reminded of the lines from “The Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot:

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow.

    I am reminded of the fine poem by JOE M:
    by Joe M.
    Losers see the winners,
    finishing the race.
    They see the tickertape and
    that smiling, stinging face.
    They feel the empty waves of glory,
    all go washing by.
    Yet they continue on determined,
    though only they know why

    Actually, too bad…I was looking forward to USC giving O-State a beating.

    GL, it’s not exactly The Waste Land, but it’s not bad. True to his credo, Joe M. hasn’t let the plaudits bestowed on Eliot and others dissuade his own efforts at versification.

    Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile.

    I hate blind squirrels.
